It can be stressful for any young person changing school. It’s likely to be more so for the young people that need our services. Wings School Notts has a dedicated nurture suite to ease the transition.
Many of our young people have not been engaging with main stream education before they come to Wings Notts. The staff concentrate on building capability and confidence, and bringing the young person up to an appropriate educational standard. The amount of time spent in nurture is dependent on the specific needs of the young person and, in general, they transition into the main school at the start of Key Stage 3. The essence of nurture is to teach the curriculum and provide all the support needed. Some young people move on more quickly, it’s all about finding the right pace of development.
