Schools Award


The Warwickshire Young Carers Schools Award aims to encourage and support schools to work toward provision of a high standard of support for Young Carers attending their school. The primary objective is to improve the experience; attendance and attainment of Young Carers in their education so that they might go on to achieve their full potential despite the added responsibilities they must face.

It is hoped that by completing this award schools will be better equipped to support students with caring responsibilities to reach their potential whilst also providing for their individual needs. Completion of this award could help a Young Carer make an informed decision on which school to attend if they have a choice

The levels are; Self – Assessment, Bronze, Silver and Gold and there are 5 standards that need to be completed to achieve each award:

Standard 1: Understand

There is a lead member of staff with responsibility for understanding and addressing the needs of Young Carers and a Young Carers Policy is in place.

Standard 2: Inform

Awareness is raised by sharing knowledge about disability, illness and Young Carers throughout the school.

Standard 3: Identify

Young Carers are being identified within your school and signposted to other resources and services outside the school.

Standard 4: Listen

Young Carers in your school and their parents are listened to and consulted.

Standard 5: Support

Young Carers are supported within the school with attendance, attainment and their experience.
