The Nurturing Quality Mark Award
The Quality Mark Award recognises the work of nurture groups that have been running for two years or longer. The Nurture Group Network runs an accreditation scheme for excellence in nurturing: The Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award.
The QMA is reflective not only of the hard work of the students but the dedication of the staff, and is awaarded on evidence that nurture works in the school.
The process of achieving the QMA ensures that there is evidence of good practice set against national standards, which is not only useful for inspections, but also planning, reviewing and reflecting on effective practices and the impact and outcomes.
