Book Description

Unique in its field, the second edition of this respected book continues to underpin teaching in a positive, structured, and proactive manner. This text has been revised and expanded to include:

  • A new chapter on nurture groups and pedagogy, child development theories and brain research
  • Updated examples such as the Every Child Matters agenda, an inclusive curriculum and schools’ responses, ‘and a practitioner’s physical contact with the child
  • A Case study from an international Nurture Group


Product Description


'The use of Nurture Groups is central to an intelligent and effective behaviour strategy. Where they have been used in schools the results have been very encouraging and in my recent behaviour review for the Secretary of State I was keen to support their further development. Children learn how to behave and bad habits are rarely fixed. It is the responsibility of us all to do our best to help our children acquire the skills and attitudes that will enable them to become happy members of society. Inevitably problems will arise. When they do, effective early intervention is essential. This book should be read by all those who work with children and who believe in their potential for success' - Sir Alan Steer

Author of Learning Behaviour - Lessons Learned, D.C.S.F. Behaviour Adviser

5.0 out of 5 stars Making the best better 5 Jun. 2010
By J. Rose
Nurture Groups in Schools by Marjorie Boxall has long been the definitive book for those wanting to know about nurture groups and to find out more about the details of what makes for good practice in the day to day work of a group in school. Sylvia Lucas' well written 'update' loses none of the insights of the original book. By adding contemporary contextual information, however, she makes the book even more relevant to the increasing number of teachers and head teachers who are finding nurture groups to be a really effective way of engaging their whole school community in supporting and helping the most vulnerable and needy children.
