What is 7N?
7N is a small transitional nurture group that support some of our most vulnerable students to make a smooth transition into secondary school.
Most of their lessons take place in the same classroom with the same LSA. This enables the students to feel secure and comfortable in a familiar base with all the relevant resources available including computers, books and various equipment. With their 7N teacher they work on maths, humanities and literacy. This allows them to work at a pace which is relevant to their ability.
For other lessons such as Science, Art, drama and music they go to specialist rooms with specialist teachers. For PE and Technology they mix with students in the mainstream.
