The Willow Nurture Group

The Willow group is a place for children to have the opportunity to grow in confidence and become engaged, successful learners in their classrooms and the school community.

Our Nurture Group is a small class of four – six pupils. The children are carefully brought together to ensure a balanced and functional group. The Nurture Group continues the ethos of an already nurturing environment within Bagshot Infant School and provides inclusion for all children promoting Personal, Social & Health Education. Children are supported within The Willow Group to improve their emotional well-being, self-esteem and have a sense of belonging to the school community. We provide a structured routine with clear boundaries so the children feel safe and secure. Our Nurture Group is a place of learning.

We follow the six principles of the Nurture Network.

The Nurture Group Principles:

  1. Children’s learning is understood developmentally (stage not age)
  2. The classroom/school offers a safe base
  3. Nurture is important for the development of self-esteem
  4. Language is understood as a vital means of communication
  5. All behaviour is communication
  6. Transitions are significant in the lives of children
