Our Trust of Schools

Young Carers

At Lipson Co-Operative Academy we believe all young people have a right to an education, regardless of their situation at home. When a young person has a caring responsibility they may need extra support to help them get the most out of school.

We define a Young Carer as a young person who has caring responsibilities for a family member with a disability, health condition or substance misuse issue. Young carers may provide physical care, personal care, help with medication or practical tasks, or provide emotional support. The attached document outlines our policy in how we will seek to identify, raise awareness of and offer support to any pupil who looks after someone at home.  If you have any questions about Young Carers or think your child may need to be added to our Young Carers list, please email:
