Ms Alden is the Young Carers Champion at The Robert Smyth Academy. She is here to offer you discreet and sensitive support with any issues and concerns that may arise as a result of the extra demands placed on Young Carers. Ms Alden can talk to your teachers confidentially so that they are more aware of the pressures homework and coursework may be causing you. She is here after school to help you with homework and coursework and can support you in working on managing the many demands on your time. Ms Alden can also direct you to any other support that is on offer out of school where appropriate.
You can contact her through: mentoring, your tutor or by visiting the Inclusion department.
