We have a growing number of children on roll recognised as Young Carers (YC), some of them attend Andover Young Carers (AYC) weekly or monthly. We work closely with AYC and local support services in adopting a recognised referral system to help identify and work with Young Carers and their families.
We believe all children should have the same opportunities and the right to reach their full potential regardless of responsibilities at home. We know that supporting children and offering help when needed improves outcomes. Endeavour Primary School us passionate about making the lives of Young Carers better through promoting YC’s awareness with children, families and staff. We offer pastoral support, regular drop in sessions on a Tuesday lunchtime with Miss Jakes and promote a strong spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness through our curriculum. Children accessing YC support share positive influences to fellow YC’s who may need reassurance and kindness.
We work closely with Andover Young Carers to provide a secure framework of support for Young Carers in school. We have two members of staff at Endeavour who work with the children and parents to ensure we offer the best support possible.
