What is the purpose of Nurture?
The Nurture Group is run by two specialist, Nurture trained members of staff. It is a small class of 8 children. The children are carefully brought together to ensure a balanced and functional group. There is much research evidence that children’s learning is most effective when they have a sense of emotional well being, good self-esteem and a feeling of belonging to their school community. The Nurture Group provides children with this opportunity and so helps to develop their maturity and resilience, whilst developing the skills they need to reach their full potential. The Nurture Group is a place of learning.
