St Anselms Young Carers joined in with a Pizza party and film even that took place in our school library Wednesday 8th November. 


Friday 14th July Young Carers Event

St. Anselm's Young Carers joined the rewards day event last Friday 14th July. Year groups attended to have fun on the70ft inflatable assault course, play the giant outdoor games and enjoy a free ice cream.  

Everyone had a fantastic time!



Friday 8th July 2022 Young Carers Event 

 Our Young Carers cohort had loads of fun in the sun, bouncing through the inflatable assault course and ‘battling’ in the safest possible way in kangaroo suits. Refreshments and ice creams were provided to combat the high temperatures, and everyone was given a shopping voucher to take home. What fun!




Young Carers Non-Uniform Day 2021

Thanks to all students and parents who were involved in fundraising for the non-uniform day for Young Carers, dress up as your childhood hero.  A total of £1149 has been raised to support this amazing cohort of students.


 Easter 2021

All the Young Carers enjoyed an Easter egg hunt, they all hunted for the coloured eggs and won a personalised box with lots of choccie!! The winner who found the golden egg received a large Easter egg prize!


EKST 2021

The Young Carers attended numerous events including The King's School rec centre where they participated in First Aid skills, games and spinning classes!

Another group also attended the Outdoor learning event in Deal where they made dens, practiced archery, built campfires and did lots of pond dipping. All of these were provided for by EKST.




Our Ambassadors

The Staff and Students of St Anselm Catholic School Canterbury had an opportunity to learn and reflect on the day to day life and challenges of a Young Carer.

This was thanks to the bravery and the collective effort of the following Young Carers Ambassadors.

We render immense gratitude to them, for their readiness to share their unique and touching experiences eloquently and with a smile on their faces.

The Young Carers Assembly Week this year , which coincided with the Young Carers Awareness Week, was a huge success and will forever be remembered in this school community.


St.Anselm's has recently received this award in recognition for its developing support for the young carers within our community.

We are grateful and inspired to continue with our work
