St Anne’s CE Primary School is proud to introduce ‘The Tree House’ a nurture provision within school, which is available to ALL pupils who may benefit from a ‘nurturing’ and ‘enabling’ approach to improving self-esteem, social skills, confidence, emotional regulation, developing resilience or just a listening ear.
The Treehouse will provide a variety of functions such as:
The Tree House daily check-in for identified pupils. Your child will be invited if we think it will help them.
Also, depending on the identified need, we provide the following interventions:
Emotional Literacy identifies the status of pupils’ emotional literacy and provides follow up activities for intervention. The assessment covers 5 key areas including: Self-awareness, Self-regulation, Motivation, Empathy and Social Skills.
Talkabout is a practical resource which is aimed at improving Social Communication Skills such as: Listening, Conversational Skills, Body Language and assertiveness.
Socially Speaking will help pupils to practice the skills they need to develop and maintain relationships outside the school context. It is divided into 3 units: let’s communicate, let’s be friends, and let’s practise.
The Boxall Profile is a two-part checklist, which is completed by staff who know the child best. It identifies the levels of skills the children possess to access learning.
Interventions will take place once per week, for half a term and be rotated during the afternoon to ensure that pupils do not miss out on classroom input.
No interventions will take place without full consultation and discussion with parents. If it is considered that your child might benefit from any of the above interventions, you will be contacted by Mrs Montague in the first instance to discuss it further.
Definition of nurture:
If you nurture plans, ideas, or people, you encourage them to develop. Nurture is care that is given to someone while they are growing and developing.
