Caister Academy awarded the Carer Friendly Tick

Caister Academy has been recognised by the Caring Together Trust for the ongoing work we do to support our students who have the added responsibility of being a Young Carer for a member of their family.  

The award of a National Kitemark acknowledges our commitment to ensuring our Young Carers are visible, acknowledged and supported across all areas of school life and the curriculum, that Young Carers receive equal access to rewards and enrichment activities. We are supported in our endeavours by Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Young Carers who visit weekly and provide one to one support for our pupils as well as extra-curricular and holiday activities. 

Our Young Carers are selfless in the support, love, and commitment they demonstrate, and we are very proud of their progress and achievements.
