Nurture at Southgate:

The Six Principles of Nurture:

Nurture recognises children’s needs in six principles. These are all based around making a child feel safe and able to manage overwhelming emotions:

  1. Children’s learning is understood developmentally
  2. The classroom offers a safe base
  3. Nurture is important for the development of self-esteem/ well being
  4. Language is understood as a vital means of communication
  5. All behaviour is communication
  6. Transitions are significant in the lives of children

We strongly believe that these nurture approaches improve outcomes and
help prepare our pupils for adulthood.
