A Nurture School

Here at Little Reddings, we develop and embed a nurturing culture throughout our school, enhancing teaching and learning, promoting healthy outcomes for children and young people, all by focusing on emotional needs and development as well as academic learning in a whole-school environment. 

The programme is based on the six principles of nurture and supports our Nurture Room (The Hundred Acre Wood) run by Mrs. Nöel, which is a more focussed intervention for those identified in need of nurture group provision. 

Who Benefits…

  • Our pupils benefit – from the approach that supports them in their specific needs while delivering teaching and learning in a way that all can access. The pupil is at the heart of our school focus and their learning is understood developmentally.
  • Our parents benefit – from being involved and welcomed in the school, in seeing the improvement in the children’s learning, behaviour, confidence and attendance. A better outcome for their children both in and out of school and classroom.
  • Our staff benefit – from a renewed focus on their pupils and a culture change where every voice counts. A more balanced measure of outcomes for individual pupils ensues. 
  • Our school benefits – from showing our commitment to developing an ethos and culture that is inclusive and supports everyone in and associated with the school
  • Our community benefits – 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.
