'[This] resource would have enormous value for all who are considering developing nurture provision within their school, as it provides a clear overview of the practical considerations involved and provides guidance on the tools that need to be devised. This well thought out resource will reduce the workload for all those setting up groups and be a real confidence giver to all Nurture leaders' - "SNIP". 'What an excellent book! "Running A Nurturing Group" does exactly what it says in the title and much more. The layout and framework must make it one of the most accessible books ever. Every chapter states its intention, unfurls - and then is concisely summarised at the end. Then we have questionnaires, tick lists, case studies and PowerPoint presentations; just what tired teachers need to take on a new body of knowledge. There is a wonderful balance of practical suggestions and theory - at all the times you feel you are in the hands of a dedicated, researcher and practitioner' - Jenny Mosley, Founder of Quality Circle Time. '"Running a Nurture Group is a worthwhile book full of useful ideas and resources for nurture group practitioners. Simon Bishop is a skilled nurture group practitioner and he links his contemporary, practical experience to the wider range of ideas and thinking that inform and underpin nurture group work in a helpful and accessible style. I am delighted to commend this important addition to the increasing literature on nurture groups - Jim Rose, Director, The Nurture Group Network. Setting up and running a Nurture Group in your school is an effective way to improve the quality of educational provision for every child, not just for those with special educational needs. This practical book is especially useful for those new to the idea of Nurture Groups. It offers a clear structure for making a Nurture Group work effectively, and provides tried and tested photocopiable resources to support the whole process.
