Young Carers

“At Ysgol Bro Dinefwr, we understand that some young people will have additional responsibilities outside of school that others do not. It is vitally important that we are empathetic to these needs in order to support the young persons well-being and educational development.”

Mr S Thomas (Designated Safeguarding Person)
