Our Nurture team have just been awarded the Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark award – we are the first Gloucestershire school to be recognised with this accolade. Nurture Group provides opportunities to develop confidence, self esteem and social skills in a secure, caring and safe environment.
At the Award ceremony we were proud to welcome Neal, John and Tony back to speak about their experiences of Nurture whilst at Yorkley. The boys were part of our first Nurture group. Now Year 8 students at the Dean Academy, they told our audience of invited guests how much Nurture meant to them. John said that he was encouraged to think about what he would like to do in the future, and Tony thanked Mrs Phillips and Mr Frost for all their help which resulted in his SATs success.
Helen Stollery, Lead Trainer and Assessor for the Nurture Group Network presented the award to Mrs Phillips.
Mrs Burke told the audience: Nurture isn’t a quick fix. It is most certainly not somewhere where ‘naughty children’ go. It’s a provision that we have made work for us, one that enhances the lives of many of our children. The cherry on the cake is that, as a school, our Nurture provision has been recognised for the amazing work it does, and that is why today we have received this prestigious award.
