NURTURE- Nurture group runs as required when we have a group of pupils who require intensive support
What is a Nurture Group?
Nurture Groups are a small provision within a school supporting children who have difficulties in the mainstream classroom. They are usually about eight to ten children in the group at any one time with specially trained staff.
Here at Manor Field Infant School we have the Rainbows Nurture Group for our KS1 pupils.
Who are Nurture Groups for?
Nurture groups are set up for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties which may be:
- lack of self-esteem
- unable to share and take turns
- doesn't trust adults/peers
- may lack in mannerism skills
- disrupts other children in the classroom
- has behavioural issues
- language skills
- struggle with the mainstream classroom environment
Entry into the group is carefully considered through a staged referral procedure and the use of a range of assessments over time.
