What did our assessor have to say about our school?
"The school ethos of Ready, Respectful, Responsible is reflected throughout all aspects of the school. Throughout the assessment day the staff spoke about being ‘hugely passionate about nurture’."
"Understanding All Behaviour is Communication has been a key learning area for the school. There is a clear impact of this in the way that emotion coaching scripts are used by all staff, parents and the children. During the assessment day Sam Gillion, the Headteacher spoke about nurture work around teaching staff to ‘stop and pause – to understand the children’s triggers.’ She spoke about how staff now diffuse situations quickly and with empathy."
"The staff are especially effective at working with parents. The nurture team makes time to build relationships with parents and the parents were hugely appreciative of this."
"Seeing how our nurture group children have progressed, how they hold themselves, how they talk…. They are so proud of themselves. Wow!"
