At Ash Green School, we use a MACA survey to help identify any students that may be young carers. We have a Young Carer Charter to support students within school and offer a half termly social event for students.
We have a range of support offers available at Ash Green School, this includes counsellors, working with a trailblazing project with the Mental Health in School’s Team where they do low level cognitive behaviour therapy focusing on anxiety, panic, phobia and worry. We can also do referrals to CAMHs.
The school has Mental Health Ambassadors that provides peer support using resources from the Mental Health Foundation.
Mrs Winterburn oversees the medical care plans and works closely with students to ensure that we have an inclusive provision in place to support all students needs.
