·        An outline of up-to-date research in attachment theory and neuroscience

·        Nurture Groups and child development and learning

·        Linking to the curriculum

·        Developing a whole-school nurturing approach

·        Monitoring and evaluation through a structured, evidence-based, planned approach

This Information Session will be of interest to those who wish to set up and run a nurture group. It is also suitable for schools who want to adopt a more nurturing approach while working with children who have any or all of the following:

·       social, emotional and/or behavioural difficulties,
