Greenfinches and The Hive!

In Greenfinches and The Hive we aim to provide a caring, nurturing and safe environment where pupils are provided with experiences that make them feel valued and respected. We help our pupils recognise, understand and develop skills to improve social and emotional well-being. We continue to remove learning barriers and to motivate pupils through a wide range of learning opportunities. We do this by following the six principles of nurture:

The Six Principles Of Nurture

1. Children’s learning is understood developmentally
2. The classroom offers a safe base
3. The importance of nurture for the development of wellbeing
4. Language is a vital means of communication
5. All behaviour is communication
6. The importance of transition in children’s lives
