Nurture Group is a new development at West Kirby School and College. Our aim is to support learning and social and emotional needs to help to remove the barriers to learning.
We promote an Attachment and Trauma Sensitive approach within the School. Our staff are trained in supporting Attachment and Trauma difficulties, this allows them to support and help our young people develop emotional regulation, well-being and resilience through specific programmes and interventions. Some are also qualified to train our staff in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention.
In October, we were awarded Attachment & Trauma Sensitive Schools Award - Bronze level (ATSSA). The award is external recognition of the commitment of our staff and the work they do to develop a culture of compassion and nurture. This plays a key role in getting children and young people into a state of 'learning readiness'. Above all, the school is committed to embracing inclusion at its best, successfully removing barriers to learning and participation in the school. Read more here
