A children's charity has stressed the importance that "Britain's youngest parents" receive a good education to ensure a healthy future for their child.
The 12-year-old girl from north London gave birth to her 13-year-old boyfriend's baby last weekend making them Britain's youngest parents.
Claude Knights, chief executive of Kidscape, told ITV London that effective support structures were now vital to the pair's well being and the future of the child.
"Although they are parents, they are still children that need parenting themselves. Despite them saying how happy they are, their resilience will be quite low and they will be fragile so they will need support," she said.
"Childcare is crucial so they can be reintegrated back into school to give them and their child the best possible chance of a future."
Ms Knights added that the respective schools may have to monitor their welfare in relation to any issues of bullying that may arise.
