Young Carers Angel Award
Surrey Young Carers Angel Award December 2019 Update
Chertsey High School is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Young Carers Angel Award by Surrey County Council. We would like to thank the staff and young carers who have been working towards this award since March 2019. The award recognises the excellent practice and support provided by Chertsey High School through our pastoral system and our Wellbeing team. It also recognises that we have created a culture of acceptance, understanding and support for all our young carers from the beginning of year 7. Our half-termly meetings are an opportunity to meet as a group, talk about any worries, and plan our first group trip in the New Year!
