At Cauldwell we recognise that some children have additional responsibilities for caring at home than most. Therefore, we actively promote and encourage the identification and support of young carers. We have a weekly lunchtime club, offer a termly breakfast for children and their parents / carers and encourage children to access these and speak openly to their class teachers and peers about their caring roles.
