Nurture Portrait 2016-2017

In spring 2017, we trained 40 pilot schools taking part in the Boxall Childhood Project to use the Boxall Profile to assess the SEMH of their pupils. We also raised awareness regarding the importance of nurture, attachment and neuroscience for teachers to better understand and respond to difficult behaviour and SEMH needs of their pupils.

Schools were then given the summer term to train their staff and put in place systems to manage the assessment of all their pupils. In total 26 schools collected data for several year groups or for all their pupils, and overall we gathered more than 6,000 Boxalls over one term!
