The Home Hub
Our names are Mr Hendy and Mrs Coles and we work in The Home Hub. The Home Hub is a welcoming and homely space for children who need an extra boost to help themselves push towards their full potential in and out of school. It is a place where children can develop their confidence, resilience, engagement, and develop their emotional management skills, amongst many other aspects. Our work is directed by the ‘six principles of nurture’ which are outlined in the picture below.
In The Home Hub, children work in very small groups (around 6-8 children) with two adults in a nurturing environment. Through carefully planned activities and lessons, children can make great progress in their learning and personal development. Children who come to the Home Hub are still a part of their mainstream classes and spend four half-days in our group, and one whole day in their usual class. In The Home Hub, we enjoy circle games, cooking, phonics, mindfulness, snack and stories, amongst many other things!
