Nurture

Your child's happiness, well-being and security is our number one priority.  At Finberry Primary School Miss N S Roberts is the dedicated Nurture Teaching Assistant and we also have a fully resourced nurture classroom. A further teaching assistant, Mrs Power, is trained to deliver Drawing and Talking therapy and The Headteacher of Finberry, Ms Scharinger, is also a trained SENCo.

Where needs are identified, well-being interventions will be implemented following a discussion with parents/carers. These may take place in a separate area or may form part of provision within the classroom. All classrooms have a dedicated area where children may withdraw to when they are feeling less settled and need to be in a quieter area in order to focus on their learning tasks. We call it the ‘calm down’ area.

Our aim is to ensure that not only do all pupils feel happy, secure and valued but that they are also able to work in a calm, pleasant and purposeful environment without disruption.
