Nurture Students Lecture at the UEA

Nurture Students Lecture at the UEA


For the fifth year running, we were invited by Dr Jan Watson - Senior Lecturer in Education and Professional Development - to speak to the secondary PGCE students at the University of East Anglia. The aim of the lecture is to share the many strategies and interventions that support and ensure our students make progress at Aylsham High School.


During part of the lecture Mr. Sweatman delivers, two students are invited each year to share their own experiences. This year, Joshua and Thomas, both year 8 Nurture students spoke in the Congregation Hall Lecture Theatre and received the most wonderful feedback from both staff and students. After the event, Dr Jan Watson explained to both boys; ‘Even adults find it difficult to speak to new groups of people in such a formal setting, so I hope you feel proud of yourself for having the confidence to do this.’ They certainly were proud and on arrival back to school, the staff that greeted them could not of been prouder either. Well done boys!
