Neale-Wade wins award for young carer support

Neale-Wade Academy has been given a Bronze award for our work to make sure students don't miss out on an education because they are young carers.

The Young Carers in Schools programme helps primary and secondary schools improve outcomes for young carers and celebrates good practice through the Young Carers in Schools Award.

Executive Principal, Jason Wing, said "I am absolutely delighted that the Academy has received this award in recognition of our work in supporting young carers in their vital role.”

To achieve the Bronze Award Neale-Wade Academy has demonstrated that it supports young carers in many ways, including homework clubs and drop-in sessions with a member of staff who is responsible for this vulnerable group of pupils.  Vital information about how to identify young carers is made available to all school staff, and noticeboards and the school webpage let students and their families know where to go for help
