Success Criteria

We shall be a successful nurture group if:
we provide affirming, positive and manageable sessions
time-out is seen as an effective sanction
the incentives used are seen as desirable by the children
what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour is made clear
any inappropriate behaviour is spotted quickly and dealt with
a session's routines provide security and predictability
the activities are tailored to guarantee success for the child
the children are given unconditional warmth and acceptance
there is a focus on group-building activities
the children have greater attention in class
the children can gain a more positive identity than the one they have 'learnt' elsewhere
the children can gain confidence and are more willing to take on new challenges
the sense of success enables the children to put more effort into their work
there is plenty of humour and fun
