Angel Award

We are very lucky to have a dedicated Home School Link Worker (HSLW) at our school. Miss Burgess supports all our children and families and is available at any time if you or your child need any support. If your child comes home and talks about the Worry Buster—that’s her too! One of the things Miss Burgess has been working on this year is identifying children in our school community who are Young Carers and referring them to Surrey Young Carers to access the support they deserve and need. This week we were visited by Claire Gavin from Surrey Young Carers, who has confirmed that Yattendon School has evidenced their support for young carers who attend the school. The Angel Award aims to encourage and recognise all the great work that schools do in identifying and supporting their young carers. Schools achieving the Angel Award will be recognised by pupils, families and professionals as a young carer friendly environment. This creates a culture of acceptance, understanding and support for its vulnerable pupils. I am pleased to say Yattendon School will therefore be awarded the Surrey Young Carers Angel Award. A full presentation of the award will take place next Friday 1st July, so pictures will follow.
