The Ark is a nurture group that was purposefully set up to support children in January 2018. The room has been carefully arranged to have the best of both classroom and a home environment. It is a warm, welcoming and a safe happy place for children. There are areas for sharing stories, circles times and learning. The Ark continues the ethos of an already nurturing environment within Kingsley School and provides inclusion for all children promoting PSHE provision. Therefore the children are supported within the Ark to raise their emotional well-being, self-esteem and have a sense of belonging to the school community.
