What is the Nurture Group?
Nurture Groups are acknowledged as an effective and successful early intervention for pupils with behavioural, emotional and/or social difficulties.
Becket Primary is proud to be host to the Derby City KS1 Nurture Group. This forms part of the continuum of support and provision provided by the LA for children from across Derby City between the ages of 5 and 7 years old with emotional, behavioural and social difficulties that has placed them at risk of exclusion from their school or they have indeed been excluded.
A placement at Nurture Group is awarded through referral to and consideration by the LA’s Primary Placement Panel.
The SENCo manages the Nurture Group. The Nurture Group is staffed by 3 experienced Teaching Assistants.
You can find out more about the Nurture Group by visiting the relevant part of the school website. Derby City LA is currently undertaking a re-evaluation of provision for children with additional and special educational needs across the city and the Nurture Group is not, at this stage, accepting any referrals.
Below are some of the comments parents, carers and visitors have said about Nurture Group:
Thank you for the wonderful job you do. Your facility is beyond words. From the first visit, you made us feel that you wanted our child and that was such a marvellous feeling. Carry on the good work!
You and Nurture Group are a shining example of all four standards of compassion, attitude, respect and equality (CARE); of course, not forgetting the school as a whole.
My child has learnt how to deal with a classroom environment better than before
The staff have all been great, from the first visit when I saw that they wanted him rather than ‘put up’ with him.
I can’t think of any way the group can improve, short of moving in with them at home!
