We are proud at Finch Woods Academy to offer Nurture based education. Nurture is a specialist form of provision for pupils with SEBD and begins with our fully qualified professionals assessing their learning; social and emotional needs of a child and putting in place whatever support is needed to remove the barriers to learning.

Our Nurture group has been established for a number of years and at any time throughout their education with us children can spend time within this environment to better equip them with strategies to develop and grow. The group is based around communication and language development and the supportive relationship between staff and students is key to their success.

Children learn academically and socially to develop confidence, how to respond to others, self-respect and pride in their achievements and behaviour. This is mirrored by a significant improvement in attendance. Daily activities range from creative pursuits to speaking and listening games.
