As a school, we are currently completing ‘The Nurturing Schools Programme’ which is administered by Nurture UK. It is a whole school approach to wellbeing, based on the six principles of nurture, below.
In order to become a ‘Nurturing School’, we will need to provide evidence against a wide range of standards. These standards relate to provision for, and relationships with, pupils, staff, parents and the wider community.
For pupils, a key element, will be the use of a developmental assessment tool called the Boxall Profile. This is used to identify social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. It then provides a wide range of activities and interventions to address the identified needs.
We strongly believe that the programme will help us to further develop systems and relationships to deliver on our mission statement to ‘Grow in Love’.
