Nurturing Solihull

Nurturing Solihull

Children in Solihull are set to benefit from a vital new programme that will support their social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing. 

Nurtureuk is delighted to announce that we have been commissioned by Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council to deliver the National Nurturing Schools Programme to 54 schools across the borough. The programme will be delivered across four cohorts, with the first cohort starting this month.

The council is funding schools to participate in the programme, utilising their Delivering Better Value in SEND grant from the Department for Education. 

This follows a successful pilot programme with three Solihull schools who started the National Nurturing Schools Programme in January 2023.

The programme aims to improve whole school approaches to social, emotional and mental health needs, with a specific focus on improving outcomes for children and young people with SEND. It will complement two other strands of work to deliver on the council’s inclusion strategy.
