At Abbey Primary we aim to provide work each day which is balanced, varied and suitable to the child’s ability and development.  These experiences help each child to become self-reliant and responsible members of the community.  The Nurture groups aim to create a happy, caring environment with the emphasis on making learning fun where positive relationships are seen as being vital to our success.

Super Stars Nurture Group

Caters for small groups of children, with a high ratio of staff.  The activities carried out in the Super Stars compliment the work done in the child’s own classroom; however, there are specific activities that promote a greater self-confidence in each child and a belief in one’s own ability.

Cool Club Social Skills

Caters for a small group of children who attend “Cool Club” 3 afternoons a week.  The purpose of this group is to work with the children to develop their social and conversational skills and how to express themselves and value the opinions of others.  Their motto is “A friend is one of the nicest things you can have and one of the best things you can be”.

Forest Schools

This group has allowed the children to broaden their experiences, take risks and become confident in reflecting on their learning.  We believe that outdoor learning and the outdoor environment is where children learn about the world around them, it offers challenges and promotes exploration, investigation, fun and adventure.  It allows the children to apply these skills to the challenges of everyday life.


Speech and Language Bags

Parents of children who are receiving speech and language support at the school will be invited to attend sessions with Kay, who will demonstrate how games etc. can be used to support your child at home.
