Nurture Provision

Welcome to our Nurture Provision!

Welcome to the class page for our fantastic 'Nurture Provision'.

Our Nurture Provision is a fantastic resource, built with opportunities in mind for those who need further support with their learning needs. It provides a place where children can feel safe and secure to explore their emotional and social wellbeing, learn about themselves, develop and grow.

Research shows that children’s learning is most effective when they have a sense of emotional wellbeing, good self-esteem and a feeling of belonging. The Nurture Provision at Orchard provides children with this opportunity, helping to develop maturity and resilience.

Our Room

Our highly experienced staff have created amazing spaces where children have the opportunity to learn, develop and grow! We are fortunate enough to have two rooms; our Nurture Room and our Learning Classroom. Children are able to work in small groups, pairs or individually and each room is filled with opportunity! 

Important Information

 Please make sure that all clothing, water bottles and packed lunches (if needed) are labelled with your child's name. This ensure that we do not loose any belongings.
