Welcome to the Rainbow Room!
Hello! My name is Miss Wackett and I am the Nurture and wellbeing teacher at Priory Infant School. We are a whole school initiative in partnership with NurtureUK, working together to best support your child’s wellbeing during their time with us.
Nurture is an initiative which is underpinned by six key principles which all staff and students at Priory Infant School follow:
We all learn in our own way
Nurture helps us to feel good on the inside
Our behaviour is telling you something
Our awesome classroom makes us feel safe
The words we choose are important
Nurture helps us to manage changes
Although this is a whole school approach, there may be a time when your child could benefit from a short-term intervention to better support their time at our school, and this is where our lovely Rainbow Room comes in! The Rainbow Room houses our afternoon nurture group, a smaller, quieter class in which your child will still follow their classroom curriculum (so we don’t miss out on our exciting learning!), but in a tailored way to best support your child’s needs. During our time in the Rainbow Room we also learn about our emotions, calming strategies, mindfulness and the importance of our wellbeing, all supported by a nurturing team of adults with your child’s mental health and learning as a priority.
I look forward to working with your children and for more information on how you can link learning from home, please see the following links.
