Nurture Groups are described by Nurtureuk as a school based, teacher-led psychosocial short term, focused intervention for children who have been identified as having social and emotional needs that are creating a barrier to their learning. Nurture Groups are staffed by two adults and offer children a safe and highly structured setting to support them to learn and practice their social, emotional and behavioural skills and resilience; in order to enhance their capacity to learn, develop and maintain relationships. Many studies that explore teacher stress have focused on what makes them stressful, with children’s behaviour often being cited as a challenge to teachers’ retention and resilience. As Nurture Groups focus on supporting children’s social, emotional and mental health, which includes developing their resilience, the resilience of Nurture Group staff was considered a relevant focus of research.
