As the children learn academically and socially they develop confidence, become responsive to others, learn self-respect and take pride in behaving well and in achieving.

All staff at St Thomas More are trained in Nurture and as a school we are in the final stages of completing our 2 year Nurture accreditation. The National Nurturing Schools Programme supports schools in embedding a nurturing culture throughout a school, enhancing teaching and learning, promoting healthy outcomes for children and young people. This is achieved 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 that have successfully underpinned nurture groups for over 40 years.
