I went on to Whitkirk Primary School...

My colleague Sheila Davenport who works for Barnardo's Willows Young Carers Project had invited me to visit the school to see the work Sheila's team were doing with the children to raise awareness of the role of young carers.

Steve Clark, headteacher, and Jean Hartburn, Learning Mentor, were delivering a health focus week which involved Willows Young Carers and D-Side. It was wonderful to be able to visit the school again and to be showed around the school by Steve, and Catherine and James from Year 6 who were great ambassadors for the school. What it highlighted for me was how hard the learning team at the school work to create a brilliant learning environment for some fantastic children.
