Education is a major protective factor in preventing social exclusion and predicting success in life. Children and young people who attend school regularly attain well, learn to make friends, are more likely to find skilled employment, avoid antisocial or criminal behaviour and enjoy good mental health. However, there are pupils in our primary and post primary schools who seem unable to settle to learn, who have not developed the necessary social, emotional and behavioural skills for learning. They do not respond to the teaching offered, either withdrawing or behaving aggressively to teachers and fellow pupils. These pupils make little progress, often reaching the stage of exclusion. They can have a profound, negative effect on other pupils and class morale. Much of this can be prevented. For more than 40 years, Nurture Groups demonstrate that, with the right help and support, such pupils can successfully and cost-effectively be included in main-stream schools.
For Primary and Post-Primary Teachers and SNAs.
Trainer : Marie Delaney is a Nurture Group practitioner, teacher, educational psychotherapist and author of ‘Attachment for Teachers’.
