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:-
- 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.
