What is 7Z?
7Z is a small transitional nurture group that support some of our most vulnerable students to make a smooth transition into secondary school.
Here 7Z share some of their experiences from the year:
‘I enjoy school because the teachers of the nurture group are nice. I really love Drama because of the role play and script work’
‘I enjoy being in the nurture group as it helped build by confidence and I was able to move into mainstream early’
‘My nurture group lessons are fun and Mrs Duke’s lessons are fun, we built and painted a castle’
‘I have made friends in the nurture group and I do not feel alone’
‘Mrs Duke does fun activities and we learn about interesting things’
