For any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility, and who subsequently becomes unable to provide childcare at home –  you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing or calling 03333 602130 by 9am the day before. For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday.  Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing. To access this provision, you must also have downloaded and completed the form that can be found here and you must bring it with you to the school when you arrive.

Young Carers

Young Carers are children or teenagers who look after, or help to look after, someone in their family who has an illness, disability, mental health difficulties or problems with drugs or alcohol misuse.

We at Holcombe are committed to supporting Young Carers and enabling them to achieve their educational potential. We believe that all children and young people have the right to an equal education, regardless of what is happening in their home environment.

We are working in partnership with Medway’s Young Carers Project to help young carers to participate in all aspects of school life and give information to the young person and/or their families about any relevant support which is available.

Holcombe Grammar School run a regular Young Carers lunchtime club in school and any students are welcome to come along for further information.

If you or your child would like to discuss Young Carers in private please feel free to contact Student Services.
