  • Swalwell Primary School is committed to meeting the needs of young carers so that they can attend and enjoy school in the same way as other pupils/students and achieve their potential.

  • Swalwell Primary School only shares information with professionals and agencies on a need to know basis in order to support pupils and their families.
  • Swalwell Primary School actively seeks feedback and ideas from young carers and their families to shape and improve support.
  • Swalwell Primary School uses Pupil Premium funding to minimise any barriers to education and learning experienced by eligible young carers.
  • Swalwell Primary School has an effective referral system and strong partnership in place with relevant external agencies, including the school nurse and the local young carers’ service.
