How will Nurture help my child?


How will Nurture Group help my child?


Nurture Group will boost confidence and self-esteem and provide children with the extra help sometimes needed to improve social skills and independence for example:


  • To join in
  • To settle down and listen
  • To develop concentration levels
  • To share and take turns
  • To build up resilience
  • To build up friendships with their classmates
  • It gives them a chance and helps to encourage a more positive profile among their peers and members of staff.


How long will my child be in Nurture Group for?


Sessions run for 6- 8 weeks afternoons per week depending upon the age of the children attending. These sessions would run either weekly or fortnightly, depending on the need. Individual sessions will be initially reviewed at session six with the aim of ending on session eight.

Our Nurture Lead works closely with class teachers to ensure a smooth and successful transition back to class full time after this period.

Both the Nurture Lead and class teachers complete your child's Boxall Profile together - prior to starting Nurture and after a term of completing Nurture. This enables us to see the progress they have made, and feed this back to you during parents evening.
