Our Nurture Group

 

The aim of our Nurture Group is to ensure that children are receiving a full, fun and varied curriculum in a home/school environment which is comfortable and welcoming, whilst recognising and addressing their social/emotional and behavioural needs.

 

The group is based in the Family Room and runs for four afternoons a week.  The children are encouraged to follow a routine designed to facilitate:-

 

  • Caring
  • Sharing/ Co-operation
  • Positive Thinking
  • Communication Skills
  • Confidence building
  • Coping with change
  • Improving self-awareness
  • Developing individual strategies to support their learning

 

All activities are based on building self-esteem by modelling good behaviour and praising children's for their achievements.  The activities are delivered in a form that combines the Nurture Group Curriculum with the National Curriculum and staff work closely with class teachers to ensure all needs are met.
