A caring school was congratulated on becoming the first school in North Wales to win a special award by Alyn and Deeside Assembly Member Carl Sargeant.

Mr Sargeant called at Ysgol Bryn Deva in Connah’s Quay on Friday to see the happy staff and pupils of the Nurture Group.

Two days earlier Mark Tami MP presented them with the prestigious Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award from national charity the Nurture Group Network.

The accolade is awarded to schools who show exemplary practice in supporting a range of pupil needs in their school nurture groups. Nurture groups are in-school, teacher-led groups that help children overcome barriers to making the most of school and learning.

Carl Sargeant said:

“I’m a frequent visitor to Ysgol Bryn Deva and I know what a warm and inclusive environment it is.

The staff have worked very hard to achieve this well-deserved award and I am very proud of them. It was fantastic to meet the children benefiting from their commitment and to see how engaged they were in learning.”

The school is the first in North Wales to receive the award.

Deputy head teacher and additional learning needs coordinator Helen Evans said:

“We are all delighted to receive the Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark. It is testimony to the hard work and dedication of a committed staff and the excellent support we receive from parents that has made it so successful.

“We are very proud to be the first school in North Wales to achieve this prestigious award and are grateful for the support and guidance we have received from the Nurture Group Network.”

Nurture Group Network Chief Executive Kevin Kibble said:

“Ysgol Bryn Deva has evidenced its success in running an outstanding Nurture Group, and the beneficiaries of their hard work every day are the children attending the school, their families and the wider community. Our standards to achieve this award are exacting and many congratulations are due to the staff and pupils at the school”.
