Special Educational Needs in School

A+ R A-

 

Nurture group

 

The Nurture Group is run by Mrs Smith.

 

She is an experienced practitioner who has received specialist training in the theory and practice of nurture groups.

 

The Nurture Group is for Year 1 children and is run three afternoons per week. Easily understood rules and routines are established and embedded.

 

 In this small group setting, emphasis is placed on each child’s individual personality, maturity and learning style.  Importance is placed mainly upon building confidence and self-esteem, developing independence, and improving organizational and social skills.

 

All children in the group are provided with Nurture Group Targets and these are consistently referred to in the sessions. They are also monitored by class teachers back in the whole class setting to assess the impact of the Nurture Group on behaviour displayed in class.
