Family Links the Centre for Emotional Health commissioned NJ Research to evaluate the funded work we’ve been carrying out in partnership with schools in Oxfordshire over a three year period between 2020 and 2023.
Our Nurturing Programme Approach is a whole school approach to emotional health that is
based on the Nurturing Programme. Using this approach, our partnership working with schools includes:
Practical, interactive, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops and resources for staff
A social and emotional learning curriculum for pupils
Training for staff to deliver our parent programmes with families
This research project aimed to develop greater insight into how schools are engaging with our Nurturing Programme Approach and to explore the factors that influence how it is embedded; the benefits as well as the challenges and the impact of working in partnership over a sustained period of time.
