This accolade is awarded to education providers who demonstrate exemplary practice in creating nurturing environments for their pupils.

Head teacher Suzie Hall said: “We have been working towards this award for the past year and our success aligns perfectly with our recent Good grading at Ofsted, which also confirmed the strengths in nurture and wellbeing at the school.

“This recognises everything we do every day to support pupils to feel happy and safe in school.”

The assessment process for the award involved conversations with pupils, parents and staff, and Mrs Hall expressed her thanks to all those who took part.

The three-form entry school currently has 620 pupils.

The National Nurturing Schools Award is evidence of a school’s success in implementing and embedding a nurturing culture that responds to the social, emotional and mental health needs of its pupils, alongside their academic studies.
