Young Carers Support In School

At Montpelier High School we are aware that some of our pupils are young carers and that they may need extra support to maximise their academic and emotional potential.

Therefore, we currently provide the following services for young carers:

  • Activities with the rest of the young carers on the scheme 
  • Termly/drop in sessions to talk through any issues  
  • Mentoring with an older student, if needed 
  • Ensuring that staff are aware of young carers in their class and that they support them appropriately 
  • Ability to use the school phone at lunch time 
  • Use of a bookable school laptop at lunch times 

Students can received medical support from:

Ms Dushaj – First Aider

Miss Pearce – Wellbeing & Young Carers Lead
