Attachment Aware Schools Award

We are proud to announce that we have successfully achieved both the Bronze and Silver Attachment Aware Schools' Awards and are currently working towards achieving the Gold Award. 

The Attachment Aware Schools' Award is a recognition of a commitment to the steps the school has taken, to further develop a culture of compassion and nurture. This plays a pivotal role in getting our children and young people into a state of ‘learning readiness’. The award recognises and celebrates best practice in attachment and trauma aware schools and settings.

At St Edward's First, we believe strongly that relationships are at the core of everything we do. The personalised, individual approach to all pupils is evidenced through numerous practices. Knowledge of each pupil’s developmental needs underpins relationships, interactions and planning. This is a particular strength of our school. Every interaction is an intervention.

The year-long Attachment Aware Schools' Award programme involved: training from AfC Virtual School, coaching from a team of Educational Psychologists, on-site whole school training in attachment and emotion coaching and development of a whole school change project based on findings from the Attachment Aware Schools' audit. As a result of this award we have increased our knowledge of attachment and emotion coaching, we have made our language more trauma-informed and have adapted our practice and policies to reflect this attachment and trauma-informed approach.

Our work is not yet done and we plan to continue with our attachment aware policies and procedures for many years to come.

If you have any questions about the Attachment Aware Schools' Award, please feel free to contact Mr Keohane.
