In our nurture room, we strive to provide a nurturing environment for children who struggle to access the age-related curriculum within their year group. We have a well-resourced classroom, with a high adult to child ratio to meet the needs of the children through interventions which we hope will have a long-term impact on learning and development.
We have two ‘Nurture groups’ for children from different classes throughout school.

In the Nurture Class activities and lessons are carefully planned for the specific child to ensure that they make progress, but also have fun, improve their self-esteem and confidence too.
Keep an eye on the school’s twitter feed for all the work we do throughout the year #NurtureClass.
A small group of children from different Key Stage One (PM) and Key Stage Two (AM) year groups attend the class each morning and afternoon. Carefully planned lessons and activities are delivered to ensure that each child that not only makes progress but improves their self-esteem and confidence too. We focus on the core subjects of maths and English and ensure that we deliver a daily phonics session to support children to read and write. We also look at friendships, feelings and emotions and other aspects of well-being too.
This half term Key Stage Two Nurture will be focusing on settling back into school by looking at relationships, new rules and keeping safe and healthy. We will also be learning all about animals and their habitats with our Animals topic.
