Why Nurture Provision?
As a school, we at Tiger recognise that not every child is the same; they don't all have the same experiences, needs, wants or abilities. However, we believe that regardless of this, every child deserves the same opportunities and the chance to reach their full potential.
We are very lucky to have two members of staff trained by Nurture UK (Miss O and Miss Bishop) who provide nurture groups in school.
"The nurturing approach offers a range of opportunities for children and young people to engage with nurturing experiences, giving them the social and emotional skills to do well at school and with peers, develop their resilience and their capacity to deal more confidently with the trials and tribulations of life, for life." NurtureUK (2018)
The Six Principles of Nurture

2. The classroom offers a safe base
3. The importance of nurture for the development of wellbeing
4. Language is a vital means of communication
5. All behaviour is communication
6. The importance of transition in children's lives
