National Nurturing School Award 2021

In November 2018 Beechfield undertook the National Nurturing Schools Programme - a 2-year journey to achieve a Nurture Award by embedding the 6 Principles of Nurture across our school. 

Over the lifetime of the project, we have invested time and resources into ensuring that our school developed into a more Nurturing environment, not only for our children but also for the families and the extended community. We have always wanted our school to be at the heart of our community and we have worked tirelessly to achieve this. 

On Tuesday 23rd February 2021, we had an all-day zoom call with Wendy Roden, National Training Development and Innovation Manager for Nurture UK, to discuss our journey and to give her the opportunity to speak to staff, children, parents, Governors and community partners about our achievements over the past 2 years. 

We are proud and thrilled to say that our wonderful school has achieved this very special National Award.
