Barrow Hill Site
At Barrow Hill we offer a part-time Nuture Curriculum for Key Stage 2 students. The students are dual registered, attending their Primary School in the morning and our Barrow Hill site in the afternoon, for 4 afternoons a week.
The students follow a nuture programme which is largely based around play and creativity within a relaxed and safe environment; the nuture programme is used as a strategy to prevent permanent exclusion, focusing on respite, social development and interaction.
Owing to its nature, the nuture curriculum does not follow a prescribed curriculum, nor does it support the curriculum of the child's school. Students learn to develop their social skills through thematic activities.
The nuture programme is divided into 9 distinct parts:
2. Good News
3. Work and Make
4. First Task
5. Second Task
7. Circle Time
8. Drink and Snack
9. Book Time
