The Nest at Ufton
For children lost in the classroom
We support children who are lost in the classroom.
A safe environment with a broad range of activities.
A nurturing and educational space based on experiential and outdoor learning.
Supporting children who have experienced trauma and have poor attachments.
Supporting children facing challenges at school with peer relationships, behaviour and emotion regulation.
The Nest helps children form positive experiences with adults and peers, leading to improved self-esteem, self-efficacy and resilience as prerequisites for learning.
• The Nest can support up to 8 children from one school, per session, focusing primarily on Year 1 to Year 5 children.
• It operates 5 days a week, with each child attending one day per week during the academic year.
• Transportation to and from schools will be provided by Ufton.
• Pre and post outreach activities in schools reinforce learning and celebrate achievements.
• The curriculum at The Nest is flexible, addressing individual needs.
• By integrating Ufton Adventure's proven programme (Fuller 2016) with the insights from attachment theory and nurture theory, The Nest provides a focused and effective educational experience.
• We have a qualified, dedicated team that includes experienced teachers, pastoral support workers and outdoor leaders
