HEADTEACHER WELCOME

Message from our Head Teacher

Welcome to Haydonleigh Primary School’s website and to a school where ‘I am talented, together we are amazing’ underpins our philosophy.

We provide a secure and happy environment where the work is varied and challenging and every child and adult is valued. We set the children and ourselves high standards to enable every child to develop his or her potential to the full and become confident learners.

All parents are very welcome at Haydonleigh, and we see home and school working together as very important for your child.

Our website will give you a flavour of our school’s aims, the activities that the children are involved in, the achievements that we have gained and the wealth of memorable experiences that the children encounter.

I hope you enjoy the website and if you'd like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Young Carers

At Haydonleigh, we are committed to supporting our Young Carers and their families. We have received the Young Carers Award which raises awareness and provides support to those pupils who are Young Carers.

What is a Young Carer?

A Young Carer is child or young person whose life is affected because they are responsible for looking after someone at home. This can include a parent, grandparent, sibling or other family member. The people they look after may have a physical or learning disability, long term illness, mental health illness or suffer with substance misuse problems.

 

Caring Tasks

The additional care and responsibilities Young Carers have might include:

  • Personal care
  • Housework
  • Lifting
  • Shopping
  • Giving medication
  • Looking after siblings
  • Emotional care
  • Financial care

 

Haydonleigh has a designated member of staff who has special responsibility for Young Carers and will ensure that all support is offered and co-ordinated to suit each individual.

Currently our designated liaison is:   Miss Fran May

If you think your child may be a Young Carer then please let us know so we can help.
