Nurture Provision

                        

At Iveson we support all our children to achieve their full potential and recognise in order to do this there are times when they may require nurture provision. Nurture provision seeks to support our children to overcome barriers in their learning brought about by social, emotional or behaviour difficulties through short term, focussed intervention strategies. We recognise the need for children to form secure and happy relationships in their formative years and therefore we ensure our nurture groups provide the opportunity to revisit those early nurturing experiences.

We are extremely proud to have been accredited as a MindMate Friendly School.

When I am angry , you help me. I love the Lego, it helps me calm down. I can come to talk to you when I need to.

I get to play with my friends. It has helped me and I have changed a lot. It was fun. It tells me my family is special and I am special too.

Meet the team

Mrs Rhodes
Mrs RhodesHLTA
I am a HLTA and deliver the Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE) curriculum to pupils throughout Key Stage 2. I also oversee the delivery of PSHE in Key Stage 1. I have completed Nurture training and support pupils with various play therapy techniques and activities such as ‘Talk & Draw’ and Guided Visualisation. Alongside these important interventions, I also include sand and Lego therapy and run breathing and focused stretching classes. The pupils benefit greatly from these sessions and find them effective when dealing with anxieties and worries. I feel very proud to be part of our fantastic Inclusion team and aim to ensure our school has an inclusive and nurturing environment.
Mrs Scott
Mrs ScottFamily Support Worker
Alongside my role as Family Support Lead I also work closely with the children across all key stages. I am a trained Nurture Worker, a role which I thoroughly enjoy, I work with small groups of children, the sessions run weekly for usually between 6-12 weeks. We can focus on many different things, such as friendships, behaviour, anger and low self-esteem. Pupils can be referred by the class teacher, SENCo or through our weekly inclusion meetings. Parents are also able to request support or additional information regarding Nurture Support. I also deliver Seasons for Growth, an intervention based on the belief that change, loss and grief are normal and valuable parts of life. It aims to produce a sense of resilience, personal growth and acceptance of change in people’s lives. The children and young people’s programme deals with change, loss and grief associated with death, family breakdown, or any other form of separation. I also deliver 1-1 Drawing and Talking sessions. This is a gentle, non-intrusive method of working with a child who needs a little help to support their emotional and learning needs. Drawing and Talking therapy supports those who are not realising their full potential either socially or academically.

My work is child lead, we get to know each other and we build up a mutual trust, this enables me to get to know their likes and dislikes, we may use Lego, art or sport, In Fact anything that helps, sometimes it is as simple as having a chat, a quiet space or using a stress ball.
