St Andrew’s was one of the first schools nationally to use this approach facilitating the transformation of a ‘failing and challenging school’ to a vibrant holistic learning environment including the innovation of a foundation unit for 3-5yr olds (2002) . The principles involve creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and positive values, through an early years approach and a rich creative curriculum with a priority on outdoors learning. The school featured on Teachers TV Happiest Days’ in 2007 Happiest Days? - Five years ago, St. Andrew's... - ClickView which led to Jeni speaking about nurturing schools at a range of conferences alongside supporting other schools and settings.
