Inclusive and Nurturing Schools (INS)

We are conducting an evaluation of the Violence Reduction Unit’s Inclusive and Nurturing Schools programme.

The Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) commissioned the Inclusive and Nurturing Schools (INS) programme.

The programme aims to reduce school exclusions and ensure pupils have healthy relationship behaviours and attitudes. It supports schools to reflect on and critically assess their culture, practices and policies.

Through systems change, the programme supports the whole school community to become more inclusive, nurturing and safe.

The VRU have commissioned a team at Anna Freud to evaluate the programme as a whole.

Project lead: Dr Polly Casey

Funder: London’s Violence Reduction Unit (VRU)

Duration: January 2024 – March 2026
