Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.”
