Nurtureuk works tirelessly to promote access to education for all. With increasing numbers of children and young people affected by social, emotional and behavioural difficulties inhibiting their progress and limiting their life chances, nurtureuk has developed a range of interventions and support to give disadvantaged children and young people the opportunity to be the best they can be. Whether it is delivering certified training, supporting whole school or authority-wide nurturing schools or promoting evidence-based research, nurtureuk is providing quality support and resources to make nurturing provision a reality for pupils across the UK and beyond.
Nurture groups are founded on evidence-based practices and offer a short-term, inclusive focused intervention that works in the long term. Nurture groups are classes of between six and 12 children or young people in early years, primary or secondary setting supported by the whole staff group and parents. Children attend nurture groups but remain an active part of their main class group, spend appropriate times within the nurture group according to their need and typically return full time to their own class within two to four terms. Nurture groups assess learning, social and emotional needs and deliver whatever help is needed to remove the barriers to learning.
NGN is a charity registered in the UK and is managed by a Board of Trustees who are volunteers drawn from education and other backgrounds.
