About Derbyshire Nurture Team - Derbyshire County Council

We are a highly skilled, experienced team of Nurture teachers and specialist TAs who have all undertaken the National Nurture training. We work within schools to set up and run Nurture groups, train staff and offer on-going support. We also offer a range of training including the National Accredited 3 Day course, use and analysis of the Boxall profile. A nurture group is a small group of 6 to 10 children/young people usually based in a mainstream setting and staffed by two supportive adults. Nurture groups offer a short term, focussed, intervention strategy, which addresses barriers to learning arising from social / emotional and or behavioural difficulties, in an inclusive, supportive manner. Children continue to remain part of their class group and usually return full time within four terms.
