Nurture at Westfield Infant School

Nurture Groups

At Westfield Infants we feel that Nurture is a vital part of school life.  The Nurture Room is an important space for our pupils, providing a non-classroom environment in which to support children as part of our school’s inclusion and PSHCE. 

It is a safe, calm place, free of judgement and a chance for children to express themselves.  Nurture is important for the development of a child’s wellbeing.

Lego Club

Lego-based Therapy is a structured social skills program.  It has many benefits including:-

  • Increased attention focus
  • Turn Taking
  • Listening
  • Compromise

It helps children to problem solve and has an enormous impact on a child’s vocabulary development and extends sentence length.

We have seen from past groups an increase in a child’s confidence and it teaches them that success is always achievable.
