Jane Miles


During my teaching career of 21 years I have taught all primary ages within two education authorities. For 17 years I have worked at Pillgwenlly Primary School in Newport, the last 10 of which as a teacher within the foundation nurture setting. I care passionately about the social and emotional wellbeing of children and am very proud to be part of such a nurturing, inclusive school. I strongly believe in the positive impact of nurture groups. Nurture really does have the power to change young people’s lives.

In recent years, Pillgwenlly has become a sector leading primary school in nurture provision, so I have enjoyed supporting people, within the county and beyond, with the setting up and running of nurture groups.

I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with nurtureuk to help develop nurture in Wales. I am keen to find out about current nurture provision throughout Wales so please get in touch and tell me about your setting. I would also like to keep people up to date with regional/network news, training opportunities in the region and continue to develop our regional meetings as well as networks of support. Please forward me your contact details if this would be of interest to you, or if I can help in any other way. My email address is

I look forward to hearing from you.
