Supporting you

Nurtureuk exists to improve the social, emotional, mental health and wellbeing of children and young people (CYP).

We help schools to improve behaviour, attendance and attainment, and reduce exclusions, by supporting staff to improve children’s wellbeing - ensuring pupils are ready and able to learn.

Our vision is to see a world where adults working with and caring for children and young people are supported and equipped with evidence-based and practice-led tools to help them flourish and learn. We work across the education sector to promote and embed nurture principles in schools and trusts, as well as at local and national policy level. This work spans several key areas:

  • Training practitioners to identify pupils’ needs and provide the right support
  • Developing and providing resources to remove pupils’ barriers to learning
  • Helping schools and wider communities to foster a nurturing culture
  • Working with researchers and academics to evidence the impact of a nurturing approach to education
  • Working with policy-makers to ensure that no child is left behind
