Nurture Room What is the nurture room?


Our nurture groups are a school-based intervention run by Mr. Conlon  and Ms. McCahill. The aim is to replace missing early experiences by developing positive pupil relationships with both teachers and peers in a supportive environment. Effective nurture group practice follows the six principles of nurture. Our assessment tool the Boxall Profile® determines which pupils would require to be in the nurture group based on their social, emotional needs.

The Nurture room aims to embed a nurturing culture to improve the teaching and learning, engagement in school life, and wellbeing of all pupils and staff.  The aim is to develop a happier, more resilient and more successful school community.

The days of the week are themed and are underpinned by the nurture principles and cover a wide range of activities and skills.
