Nurture Group

Key Stage 3

The aim of the Nurture Group is to:

  • Ensure the smooth transition from the primary to secondary school environment
  • Improve behaviour of students in lessons and around the school
  • develop self-esteem and a sense of pride and achievement
  • develop a sense of belonging to the school
  • instil a good sense of team work and sociability

Resource Base

The authority’s resource base for learning difficulties and disability is committed to enabling all students to reach their maximum potential.

We aim to provide a quality of education which facilitates the development of:

  • Self confidence
  • Positive and successful learning
  • Strategies to pursue life-long learning
  • maturity to be successful independent citizens throughout life beyond school.
  • Prepare students, where ever possible, for re-integration into mainstream education.

We work toward these aims by offering students a secure and stimulating environment in which mutual respect, friendliness and an understanding of individual needs is evident between members of the school community.
