The award recognises schools which have been running nurture groups for more than two years.
Helen Radmore, head teacher, said: "We were thrilled to achieve the nurture award as nurture is something that is fundamental to Roding.
"Everyone will have times when life is hard and some of us earlier than others. If we can help children understand and manage their emotions, they will not only be able to make the most of their time at school and learn effectively but will also be able to support others when they experience tough times.
"It is great to be recognised for the hard work the team put into doing this so well for our children and the impact that this has on the whole school community."
