Some children have additional support for personal development and well-being through nurture groups and a Learning Mentor.
This is what they said:
"I like my Learning Mentor time. I like to talk because it makes more things easier. It helps me to solve problems to talk about them. Sometime I have worries or thoughts in my head and I can't always concentrate in class."
"I like "Circle of Friends". I know more about other people and I know what to do if I am stuck in a situation. It was nice to do it with Year 5 boys because you don't usually mix with people from other year groups."
"I like "Circle of Friends". I like other people seeing me as I am and not someone to be scared of. I liked we were able to learn about different people. I think that it worked having children from different classes."
"Lego club helped me to be more patient. It has also taught me to share, I really liked it."
"I like going to Learning Mentor sessions..It is really good to talk about things that have happened and how I feel. I liked the Red Beast story and I sometimes have one in me. Sometimes I come to school angry."
"I like to come out for Nurture. I follow the rules and I am getting better at asking questions and trying new things."
"I like Nurture. Sometimes I can listen in Nurture. I ask good questions because I always listen to other people's news."
