This Information Session on Nurture Group Theory and Practice is an introduction for school personnel on the theory behind Nurture Groups and how to engage in the practice of running a Nurture Group and being a Nurturing School.
During this session, the following will be addressed:
· The practicalities of setting up and running a nurture group – early years, primary and secondary
· An outline of up-to-date research in attachment theory and neuroscience
· Nurture Groups and child development and learning
· An introduction to the Boxall Profile and how it is used to refer children and young people, set targets and put in place practical strategies to address the challenges children have
· 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,
· low self-confidence, low self-esteem, low resilience,
· self-regulation difficulties and/or self-expression difficulties.
