Provision in our Nurture Group
The Nurture Group (NG) at Chad Vale Primary School is specially designed to support small groups of children who require support to develop their self-esteem, which will enhance the children's experiences when back in the main classroom environment. Our NG is run by an experienced teacher, who is also our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) and a dedicated teaching assistant. The Nurture Group helps the children explore and verbalise their feelings, develop group work and individual learning skills, build up confidence and experience a range of different learning styles. So far this year, they have visited the MAC Theatre to watch 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', have had additional PE lessons with specialist gymnastic coaching, amongst many other things!
We use a range of social media to keep you updated about learning in our school. Photos, news and information are published regularly so please 'friend' or 'follow' us. You can also view all the information by just visiting the sites above- you don't need to 'join' Twitter or Facebook, however, you won't be able send messages or interact with these sites unless you subscribe.
