We activey work to identify and support any new Young Carers in Year 7. Each Year 7 pupil is asked to complete a Caring Questionnaire and pupils identified as Young Carers from this questionnaire will be offered extra support in school if needed. We have many fantastic and dedicated young people in our school who work selflessly and tirelessly to support and care for family members with long term health issues. If you have, or know any pupil who gives extra support in your family, you may contact Bev Ramsey (Young Carers Lead) on 2542660 or mobile 07816 894067.
Open Doors Service
Handsworth Grange Community Sports College has trained staff who manage and run an Open Doors Health Service within school. Sheffield Open Doors is a network of teenage health services across the city that provide a free and confidential service run along the same guidelines as the Sheffield Youth Clinic within the NHS. All services provide free condoms, free pregnancy testing and chlamydia screening.
Handsworth Grange Community Sports College has achieved the Bronze Award from the Carers' Trust for the work we do in identifying and supporting our Young Carers.
We are here to help, not to judge.
