Our nurture club has been very successful and well attended in previous years. Nurture club is a supportive after school club, initially for up to 30 children.
If we feel your child will benefit from attending this club they have been provided with a letter today (31st January).
The children in this nurture group will spend an after school hour each week with a mixture of other year group peers, for a range of planned activities. The nurture group is aimed to provide a warm and welcoming environment which contains aspects of home and school, with plenty of space and resources for fun activities, such as music, art, games, dance and any activities the children may request. It is a safe, predictable environment where the unique developmental needs of each child are met.
This club will be staffed by three adults, which include Mrs Raine, Miss Oselton Mrs Hannant/Miss Waters. The nature of the relationships which the staff of the ‘nurture club’ have with the children is explicitly supportive and courteous. The staff will continue to support the children to enhance their confidence, cement relationships with others and take pride in themselves. The task of the staff is to make the children feel accepted and valued, to engage them in learning and in the life of the school, and to help them relate to each other by using the group dynamics to foster and promote strong relationships. As confidence grows, we hope each child grows within themselves, which will support them as they grow and achieve throughout our school and beyond. This club will be every Thursday and as the weather improves we will spend time outdoors. Children part of this club who are at swimming will be brought back to school for this club.
