The National Nurturing Schools Award
Here are St Dunstan’s this year we are currently working hard to achieve The National Nurturing Schools Award.
The programme and award focus on mental health and wellbeing of children and young people and removing barriers to learning.
The National Nurturing School Programme allows staff to develop and embed a nurturing culture throughout school, enhancing teaching and learning, promoting healthy outcomes for children and young people, all by focusing on emotional needs and development as well as academic learning in a whole school environment.
The programme is for schools, like St Dunstan’s, who are committed to develop an ethos and culture that is inclusive, supporting everyone in (and associated with) their establishment.
The programme itself is based around The Six Principles of Nurture.
