Nurture Network

Join our Nurture Network which aims to provide a safe space for school staff who wish to develop and grow their nurturing practices. Our network meets once a term to provide support for one another as well share experiences & knowledge. The aim of this network is to develop nurturing practices in schools in order to provide the best possible support to those children with social, emotional & behavioural difficulties.


What do we mean by nurture?

The nurturing approach offers support with social & emotional skills in school to children who face disadvantages through missing early nurturing experiences. Developing social & emotional skills enables children to improve their performance at school and form meaningful relationships with their peers. It also aims to develop their resilience and helps them to deal confidently with challenges. This approach gives every child the opportunity to flourish in their education.


What will being part of the Nurture Network look like?

All sessions will be held online via zoom. The Nurture Network will be run by Dr Ruth Seymour our Educational Psychologist from our Outreach team, Dr David Colley, Associate Lecturer from Oxford Brookes University School of Education & Kathryn Davidson, Senior Educational Psychologist, OCC.

Each afternoon session will have focus on putting theory and research into practice as well as opportunities to learn from and reflect with colleagues working across school.
