Parent and Carer Involvement

Integral in the child’s success in the Dragons’ Den is the relationship between home and school. The Dragons’ Team value parent and carer involvement. We use the online app, Class DoJo, for real-time communication between home and school. We stage events and activities with the involvement of parents and carers and celebrate their achievements together.

Post year 7 support

Nurture support continues for some Dragons on a more limited basis beyond year 7 and is arranged to meet the needs of individual Dragons in collaboration with parents and carers. This support may be short or long term provision and will have life skills and PSHE at the core of the sessions.  Due care is taken to ensure that the student’s curriculum is not narrowed.

The Dragons’ Team

Students are supported in the Den by a well-qualified team.

Fram - A Nurturing School 

We place the students at the heart of our School and lead to better outcomes for students in and out of the school and classrooms. The Programme supports our inclusive practice and everyone involved in the School; students, staff, parents and the wider community. The standards we will be working towards cover three broad areas; Stakeholders, Delivery and Leadership and Management.

The principals which underpin the National Nurturing Schools Programme are not new to us; our Nurture Group, the Dragons, is based on the same six principals of Nurture:

  • Children’s learning is understood developmentally
  • The importance of nurture for the development of wellbeing
  • All behaviour is communication
  • The classroom offered a safe base
  • Language is a vital means of communication
  • The importance of transitions in children’s lives

In the coming months, we are planning to begin work with the whole school community to develop a clear understanding of the six principles of Nurture and then to move these forward into classrooms and across our school. The National Nurturing Schools Programme and our involvement in it sit clearly alongside our school values and our belief that ‘Anything’s Possible’.
