Autumn 2020 

Pelsall Village Nurture Groups



We've joined together as classmates

As the new year begins

A year full of learning 

As we become friends

We'll share and be kind

As we work and play

And our friendship will grow

With each passing day!

Wow! It seems so long ago that we were all together at school. I hope this message finds you well and doing your best to be good for your parents and your best in the work set by your teachers.angeldevil


I know you may feel confused by what is going on in the world at the moment but try not to worry as everyone is probably feeling the same. surprise


I always find reading and writing poetry helps my mind to settle down and my face to smile again.smiley


So here is a poem by one of my favourite authors A.A.Milne (he wrote Winnie the Pooh!) which I hope you will enjoy. yes

When I was ONE 

I had just begun.

When I was TWO

I was nearly new.

When I was THREE

I was hardly me.

When I was FOUR

I was not much more.

When I was FIVE

I was just alive

But now I am SIX

I'm clever as clever

So I think I will be SIX now for ever and ever!


By A.A.Milne



2019-20 - a snapshot of Little Villagers





At Pelsall Village School, all our children are equally important. This applies to all aspects of their education including teaching and learning, their achievements, their attitudes and their wellbeing. We encourage all our children to aim for the highest possible standards, and we take account of each child’s individual needs and experiences.


Nurture groups are a preventative intervention to meet the learning, social and emotional needs of vulnerable children. They are discrete classes located within mainstream primary schools; designed to meet the needs of children who are not yet ready to meet the emotional and intellectual demands of school life.


Our Nurture Group “Little Villagers” follow the “New Primary” model where children attend part time for between 2 and 4 terms before being re-integrated back into their mainstream class. The groups form part of the whole school approach to inclusion. They provide a modified curriculum in an environment based on the principals of Marjorie Boxall. This curriculum is designed to offer practical learning opportunities.


The Nurture Group provide support for vulnerable children with additional needs relating to Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMH) or who find it difficult at certain points in their lives to access a mainstream curriculum or settle into class.


Children access the Nurture Group for morning sessions. They follow a curriculum tailored to meet their individual learning needs. This includes aspects of the National Curriculum and learning opportunities designed to promote social and emotional development and skills.


The Nurture Group is run by a minimum of two trained members of staff. Group size is small (approximately 6 children) to ensure individual needs are met.


Designated PPA time for Nurture staff, led by the Assistant Head (Inclusion) ensure effective planning, monitoring and curriculum development. Regular meetings, held with the class teacher and parent/carers ensure effective and holistic monitoring and support The Nurture Team:
