MBQMA - Northgate Primary School, Great Yarmouth

It was a privilege and a pleasure to be asked to present this fourth award to Cosmic Corner nurture group team at Northgate Primary School Great Yarmouth on 17th October 2018.  The only school to have achieved this accolade. 

It is such an amazing achievement and reflects the long term commitment to nurture within the school even with the transitions from a First school to an Infants school to a primary school, associated building work and a change of Head too during the period of the four MBQMA assessments. The Cosmic Crew has remained a constant feature in Northgate and continues to be a model of good practice for schools, in the local area, who are wishing to set up a nurture group. 

The Head Lynsey Hanger invited all the children who had been or were currently in the Cosmic Corner to the front of the Front of Assembly to receive the award and to celebrate with the rest of the school also acknowledging the contribution of all the nurture group staff including Gill Blackett (Nurture Lead), Suzanne Mason (Nurture Assistant) and Sarah Young (Senco) who originally set up Cosmic Corner  (all those years ago) to support a particular group of children to see if it would make a positive impact for them and for the whole school nurturing approach. 

Congratulations everyone!
