Statement of intent
At Hadleigh Junior School we aim to provide a community for children which keeps them
safe, supports their creativity and enables them to meet their full potential.
Hadleigh Junior School is committed to supporting young carers’ access to a full education.
This policy should be implemented by all staff members in order to ensure young carers at
our school are identified and offered appropriate support to access the education to which
they are entitled.
The aim of this policy document is to raise awareness among school staff about the needs of
young carers and to support them in establishing a whole school approach to address the
issues that may arise within a school setting.
