We are delighted to report that we have been awarded the Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award (QMA) for our nurture-based practices in the classroom. The Nurture Group Network runs an accreditation scheme for excellence in nurturing, and following a formal assessment against national standards by Claire Eccleshall, we successfully achieved the award.
The award was presented at the Senedd by David Melding AM (pictured left with teacher Miss Wiggins and Principal Matthew Burns) on the 7th October. Staff were also accompanied by a small group of young people from the school nurture groups. Dressed in their Sunday best, all were treated to a tour of the Welsh Assembly building as part of the award ceremony.
The QMA is a real honour for the schools that own it, reflecting not only the hard work of the students but also the dedication of the staff in providing a nurture-based learning environment. Congratulations to all involved.
