The Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award and OFSTED/ESTYN/HMIE

High-Performing Nurture Groups

"It's always great to be with other Nurture Group practitioners, you always learn something useful and it's always warm and supportive."
Nurture Practitioner

There is now a more established research base for evaluating the effectiveness of nurture groups. The published outcomes of the research bring added weight to the importance of maintaining the integrity of the model in its delivery to vulnerable children and young people in schools and other establishments.

The Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award involves assessing the work of a nurture group against a set of quality standards. These standards are derived from the six principles of nurture groups and their clearly defined operational characteristics.
