Nurture Provision at Tiger Primary School
A Nurture group is an intensive intervention, through which we assess children’s developmental, social and emotional and needs and give them the necessary help to remove barriers to learning.
At Tiger Primary School, our Nurture Group is run according to the 6 principles of Nurture;
- Children's learning is understood developmentally
- The classroom offers a safe base
- The importance of nurture for the development of wellbeing
- Language is a vital means of communication
- All behaviour is communication
- The importance of transition in children's lives
The Nurture environment reflects our ethos; in order to best support the children with their SEMH needs, they should learn, play and grow in a space that represents a bridge between home and school.
Children’s are identified for inclusion in the Nurture group through consultation with staff and parents. Two different levels of provision are run in the Nurture room;
Nurture mornings: Children attend all morning, undertaking some curriculum-based work but doing so alongside activities specifically designed to meet each child’s developmental needs. This will include; play, practical and creative activities, discussion and games.
Nurture afternoons: Different afternoon groups are run throughout the week with children attending groups designed to support social and communication skills and boost confidence and resilience.
Children from Years 1-6 attend our Nurture provision and groups can sometimes be made up of children from different year groups.
Nurture provision is part of a package of well-being-focused provision available at Tiger Primary.
Our Nurture provision is run by Miss Ormiston (Nurture Teacher) and Miss Delsignore (Nurture Support Lead), with the support of Mrs Mehmet (SEMH Teaching assistant) when cover is required.
