The National Nurturing Schools Programme is a whole school approach to develop and embed a nurturing culture.

It supports Quality First Teaching and Learning, promotes healthy outcomes for children and young people, focusing on emotional needs and development alongside academic learning in a whole-school environment.

Who is it for?

This programme is for schools and settings committed to develop an ethos and culture that is inclusive, supporting all stakeholders.

This programme has a menu of choices (based on points), which can be selected according to the individual needs of the school (from consultancy options, publications to training). Your trainer will explain this menu to you.

Course overview

The National Nurturing Schools Programme helps SMHLs to systematically embed a culture of nurture and mental health and wellbeing support throughout the whole school. The programme is underpinned by Quality First Teaching, the Six Principles of Nurture and the Boxall Profile® (a two-year subscription to the Boxall Profile® Online is included in this bundle).

The National Nurturing Schools Programme helps SMHLs to look at a school’s ethos, its policies and procedures and its commitment to supporting pupils to achieve their best, and aids them to evaluate strengths and opportunities for improvement based on the needs of their setting.

SMHLs are supported by a team of expert consultants to enhance their school’s ethos and practices in a manageable and achievable way.

The programme uses clear standards addressing the needs and requirements of the following:

  • Stakeholders: teachers, additional school staff, parents, pupils and the wider community.
  • Service Delivery: provision for additional needs included SEMH, the curriculum offer, pupil’s ability to access learning, additional enrichment activities.
  • Leadership and Management: the quality of leadership and management, effective communication, school policies and procedures.

SMHLs and schools who adopt the Six Principles of Nurture and use the Boxall Profile® are assessed and awarded the National Nurturing Schools Award.

Accompanying resources:

  • 24 month school subscription to the Boxall Profile® Online – unlimited assessment for your setting
  • Access to twelve Boxall Profile® Competencies Course (e-learning)
  • Beyond the Boxall Profile® Classroom Strategies publication
  • Workbooks and independent tasks and activities
  • For schools to gain recognition for achieving a higher level of nurturing provision, there is the opportunity to apply for The National Nurturing School Award, assessed and awarded by nurtureuk.
  • School award certificate/plaque if successful

If any sessions are not attended. 1:1 catch up for establishments can be arranged with the trainer, however this time will be deduced from the total available points from your menu.
