Young carers from St Clements High School in Terrington have end of year awards and celebrations

A West Norfolk secondary school has given its students who are young carers a special end-of-year treat for their hard work.

St Clement’s High School in Terrington has a total of 70 young carers who help their families in a number of ways.

At the end of each academic year, the school puts on fun activities for these students to unwind at the end of a busy year.


Awards and vouchers were also given out, with student Libby Needham named as the young carer of the year and Max Cawston as fundraiser of the year.

Inflatables were set up and the students enjoyed snacks and ice creams.

Young carer lead Robin Fisher organises the event with other colleagues who provide checks and support to young carers throughout the school year.


She said: “It was brilliant and the students had an amazing time.

“We hold this each year, these students have a lot of responsibilities and don’t have much time to enjoy themselves.”

Young carers carry out roles such as cooking, cleaning, helping distribute medicine, bill paying and looking after younger siblings.


“We wanted to say well done for being so selfless and how amazing they are.”
