Majorie Boxall Quality Mark

On Friday 26 January 2018, Adam O’Riley from the Nurture Group Network and MP Peter Bone, local MP joined our good work assembly to award us with the Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award.

We were assessed for the award in October by Helen Stollery from the Nurture group network. She spent a day with us after Mrs Rachel Allen, Nurture Group Teacher had submitted a file of evidence about the work we do to support the children as a Nurture class in Limes class, and the way this is encompassed across the day to day running, policies of the school.

It was a wonderful achievement and we are all very proud!

The children enjoyed a tea party with our visitors and governors and they also made their own trophy to take home!
