Young Carers

Gold and Silver Award logos


At Banbury Academy we hold the Gold Standard Young Carers kite mark, awarded to us by Oxfordshire County Council for our work with our Young Carers.  We also hold the national Silver Young Carers in Schools Award. We are aware that a number of our pupils fulfil a caring role at home and strongly believe that all our students have the right to equal access to education, regardless of what is happening at home for them.  We also believe that no child should have to take on the responsibility of an inappropriate or excessive caring role.

A Drop-in for session is run every Friday lunchtime.
