Nurture Group takes place during the afternoons, two sessions each for upper and lower juniors. The Nurture Group is run by Mrs Blake, Miss Hallsworth and Mrs Garratt.
Nurture group rooms are carefully arranged to include the best of both classroom and home furniture. They are designed to be warm and welcoming in order to provide a consistent, predictable and safe place for children.
Nurture group rooms are set up to be a bridge between home and school, where missed learning opportunities are addressed according to the individual profile of needs. The Nurture Room is therefore set up with a table which is used for sharing meals as well as art work, a carpeted area for sharing books and games together, a kitchen area for easy preparation of tea-time snack and resources suitable for a variety of age ranges.
During the summers terms our Nurture Group is used by Y2 children as part of our transition process.
