Local School Honoured with Prestigious National Award

Mark Tami, MP for Alyn & Deeside, congratulated Ysgol Bryn Deva in Connah’s Quay on being awarded the prestigious Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award by national charity the Nurture Group Network.

On presenting the Award, 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”.

Speaking after the presentation Mark Tami MP:

“I would like to congratulate Ysgol Bryn Deva on this excellent achievement. This award is recognition for all the hard work the staff carry out to help the children fulfil their full potential.”

Helen Evans, Deputy Headteacher and Additional Learning Needs Coordinator said:

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.”
