Nurture Group

Welcome to The Starlight Nurture Group

Welcome to St. Peter's CE Primary School's Starlight Nurture Group. Mrs Roberts & Mrs Hayden will work with any child who attends the Nurture Group for three afternoons every week.  The children within The Starlight Nurture Group work in  small groups of 8  for up to 3 terms.  The children spend the rest of the time with their mainstream class.

What is Nurture Group?

Nurture Groups were originally set up in the 1970s to help children access education. The aim of a Nurture Group is to help children participate fully in all school activities by providing an environment where a child feels safe and secure, being able to explore and develop without feeling threatened or having a sense of failure.


Nurture Group staff work closely with parents/carers and class teachers to help children grow emotionally and socially at home and at school.


The Nurture Room combines elements of both home and classroom.
