It’s back to school for MSP Clare
Rutherglen MSP, Clare Haughey, paid a visit to Trinity High School to see, first hand, the work being done through their Nurture Group Network to help children overcome barriers to learning.
Nurture groups are in-school, teacher-led groups that create a safe and supportive environment that allows children, who may face a range of challenges in their daily lives, get the most out of their school experience.
Trinity High School was recently awarded the prestigious Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award by national charity the Nurture Group Network for their work in this area, the first secondary school in Scotland to receive the award.
Congratulating head teacher, Peter Bollen, and his staff on their achievement, Clare said:“I was delighted to be able to see and hear what great work is being done by the staff and pupils at Trinity with their Nurture Group Network. Trinity are trailblazers in this area in Scotland and have, deservedly, become a best practice reference point for schools in other local authorities on how a nurturing environment can radically improve the chances of many pupils.”
