Nurture School Award

What this means for your child:

  • We meet with children to support and challenge unhelpful and negative beliefs about themselves and build resilience.
  • The development of social and emotional skills is at the heart of our curriculum.
  • We use positive reinforcement and nurturing opportunities to recognize and manage their emotions.
  • We act on the pupil voice through questionnaires, class assemblies, circle time and school council meetings.
  • Transitions are carefully planned.
  • Children feel safe at Bridgelea and are supported to develop their emotional literacy
  • We understand the children lean and develop at different ages and stages and this is reflected in our curriculum and approaches.
