Giving our students the opportunity to achieve in an environment which supports their individual needs whilst maintaining high expectations.
The Nurture curriculum is designed to provide a truly holistic, personalised approach to learning and enable our students to be involved in a range of opportunities and experiences in a safe and structured environment. Lessons aim to encompass a variety of activities to structure and extend learning in an engaging, non-threatening way.
Nurture enables our experienced staff to develop sequences of learning which are appropriate for the current learners and their history. Many of our learners join Kingsmead with significant gaps in education and/or social skills. It is imperative that our students are given the opportunities to learn and explore the world around them safely and appropriately, so they are ready for life beyond school.
