As part of our Additional Needs Team and offer of support to our young people, this year we have launched our Nurture Group - a brand- new provision that has been developed to meet the diverse needs of our students. The Nurture Group is based on key psychological principles and is an integral part of our support programme for our most vulnerable young people.


Offering targeted support for Social and Emotional development, the Nurture Group staff will deliver carefully planned sessions throughout the week in a “home-from- home” environment.

Students supported by the Nurture Group will cook and eat together, and support will be provided throughout the day, during break times and lunchtimes, before and after-school; whenever the support is needed.

Our Nurture Group staff are highly trained in Nurture Group principles and supported through membership of the national Nurture Group Network.
