The Cove

Welcome to The Cove

The Cove is our new nurture provision - we are open every morning and are here to help children who are finding some aspects of school life a bit tricky. Children using The Cove will access Maths and English alongside a range of activities designed to boost self-esteem, build resilience, improve social skills and memory. All of the learning that takes place within The Cove is based on The Nurture Group Principles. 

The Nurture Group Principles

  • Children's learning is understood developmentally
  • The classroom offers a safe base
  • All behaviour is communication
  • The importance of transition in children's lives
  • Nurture is important for the development of a child's self-esteem
  • Language is understood as a vital form of communication
