Nurture Classrooms 


This year we introduced two new Nurture Classrooms. One classroom in Downpatrick and one in Castlewellan. 

Nurture rooms are focused intervention for children with particular social, emotional and behavioural difficulties which are creating a barrier to learning. 


The relationship between the nurture staff and pupils is always nurturing and supportive. There is a focus on providing a secure and predictable class setting allowing pupils to learn to manage their own behaviour effectively and appropriately to help them build on their confidence and self-esteem.
