'Collective' Worship

Our School: Together- Apart

In school, we are used to taking part in collective worship every day. This is a time where we come together as a school to reflect, think or pray. One way we can help keep a sense of normality and routine, is by using some of these resources below that give us the opportunity to do this at home.

Here you will find lots of information about what is happening in The Burrow,  including our topic information, weekly news and of course photos of all our amazing learning . 

The Nurture Group (The Burrow) is a highly valued feature of Leatherhead Trinity School.  We are called a ‘Nurture Group’ because we work in a way that is very similar to a home environment. The Nurture Group is a classroom within the school. We follow the 6 Nurture Group Principles and they are the heart of everything we do, we are also very proud to have been recognised as a "Centre of Excellence"

 

The Six Principles of Nurture Groups

  • Children's learning is understood developmentally.

  • The room offers a safe base.

  • Nurture is important for the development of self-esteem.

  • Language is understood as a vital means of communication.

  • All behavior is communication.

  • Transitions are significant in the lives of children.

About the Nurture Group

The Burrow is a part time placement, running from 1pm – 3.10pm each day. Up to 7 children can attend from 1 – 4 terms.

 

The group is led by Mrs Gale and assisted by Mrs Long.

 

The focus is for children to be given opportunities to develop their social, emotional and relationship skills. They will also cover Science, Geography, Religious Education and Topic work as per their year group curriculum.

 

We are aware of each child’s individual needs when planning, delivering and assessing their progress.  During the afternoon the group will have a snack, this social time around the dining table is highly valuable as it involves, co-operating, taking turns, waiting, being last, speaking and listening to others.

Inclusion

It is important that the children remain part of their mainstream class, they will take part in any outings and any other special class activities.

Working with us

We recognise the importance of involving the parents/carers of children who are part of the Burrow and we invite them to play a proactive and engaging role whilst their child remains in the group.  Our aim is to keep parents and carers fully informed of their child’s progress and provide them with support and advice to ensure consistency between school and home.
