Bradford Nurture Group Network
There is an active Bradford Nurture Group Network which aligns with the ethos of NurtureUK and which meets each half term on Thursday afternoons, twilight sessions running from 3.30pm - 4.30pm,
which are currently being run virtually. Please follow the below link for full list of dates.
Please visit skills4bradford website for more info http://www.skills4bradford.co.uk/Page/14897
The Bradford Network is comprised of primary, secondary and special school representatives who are at various stages of nurturing development - from those who have well established groups that have been running for up to two years, to others who are at the
planning stage or who may run nurturing provision in other formats for their more vulnerable cohorts..
Some schools wish to follow a nurturing approach more generally to support pupils who may need additonal provision for SEMH.
The meetings offer topical and relevant training to support the above. Meetings also offer a chance for schools to offer each other support and to have space for sharing and problem solving.
New members are always welcome please book vis skills4bradford website (link above).
