Nurturing School

What is a nurturing school?
A nurturing school is a place where pupils benefit from an approach that supports children and young people with their specific needs, while delivering teaching and learning in a way that all can access.

  • The pupil is at the heart of the school focus and their learning is understood developmentally.
  • Parents benefit by being involved and welcomed in the school, in seeing the improvement in their children’s learning, behaviour, confidence and attendance, with a better outcome for their children both in and out of the school and classroom.
  • Teachers benefit from having an opportunity to focus on their pupils individuality whilst ensuring the best social, emotional and academic outcome. Teachers will also enable a culture where children, all staff members, parents, families, community members voice counts. Schools benefit from showing their commitment to developing an ethos and culture that is inclusive, supports everyone in and associated with the school.
  • Communities benefit from having a school that wants to be at the heart of the community and demonstrates its central role in children and young people’s lives.


The relevance of nurture to our children

At Marus Bridge we promote a nurturing ethos across school. As part of this ethos we will be working with the children in a variety of ways:
Whole class
Small group
We are aiming to develop each child’s resiliency, so that they can learn more effectively, feel good about themselves and value each other as members of our school and community.
