Nurture Groups provide an early intervention resource for children displaying social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, whose needs cannot be met in a mainstream class. The groups are informed by Attachment Theory, have positive effects on behaviour, social and emotional wellbeing and academic attainment, and allow children who may be at risk of exclusion to remain within mainstream education.
