3.       The importance of nurture for the development of wellbeing

4.       Language is a vital means of communication

5.       All behaviour is communication

6.       The importance of transition in children’s lives

Our assessor comments “All members of the community were welcoming and shared their love of Hope School and College. It was a pleasure to meet all the stakeholders and the headteacher captured the ethos of this when we spoke; ‘I couldn’t work with a better team.’ The team captured their understanding of the Six Principles of Nurture when sharing how they place the student at the centre of everything they do, building a curriculum around their needs and developing independence skills that support students into adulthood.”
