As Labour's Shadow Minister for Children, Sharon visited Eldon Junior School in Edmonton to see first-hand the work done to support children with their social and emotional well-being as part of the Nurture Group scheme.
Nurture Groups are classes of between 6 and 12 children or young people across all key stages and uses evidence-based practices to offer short-term inclusive focused interventions that allow children to remain active parts of their main class groups but also receive support regarding their social and emotional needs that help to remove barriers to learning.
Following the visit, Sharon said:
“It was lovely to visit Eldon Junior School and see first-hand the important work being done through the Nurture Group which is helping children improve their social and emotional well-being.
“The group were incredibly friendly and welcoming, and I enjoyed having the chance to look through their sketchbooks and hear more about the work they do as part of Nurture Group.”
