Nurture at The Peak Academy is a separate unit which supports our most vulnerable young pupils who are not at the stage of being able to access the main teaching and learning at the Academy. The aim of the unit is to re-engage pupils with the learning experience. There is an emphasis on promoting socially acceptable behaviour, developing positive relationships and trust, building of an individual’s self-esteem and opportunities to experience success in the process of learning.
Everest focuses strongly on the 6 principles of nurture.
(1) Children’s learning is understood developmentally
(2) The classroom offers a safe base
(3) Nurture is important for the development of self esteem
(4) Language is understood as a vital means of communication
(5) All behaviour is communication
(6) Transitions are significant in the lives of children

This caters for the very small number of female pupils at the Academy. It is lead by two female staff who focus on a targeted curriculum that supports the individual needs of the girls. This allows them to bring in external groups focused on issues that will have a positive impact on female pupils. Those in KS4 will join the main part of the academy for their core and ‘Major’ subjects.
