NURTURE Centre

We hope that this page will keep us updated on the progress of our proposed Nurture Emotional Wellbeing Centre Build Project we announced in March. 

Overview

To improve our school provisions, we are looking to create a Nurture Centre to offer additional emotional, social and wellbeing support to the pupils at Roecliffe.  We have identified a space in the playground where the centre can be housed and are looking at suitable ‘temporary buildings’ for the structure.   

Benefits of the centre:

* Offering a quiet, contemplative space for children who require emotional support

* Additional classroom for smaller sessions such as interventions 

* Learning space for STEM activities (Science, Technologym Engineering and Maths)

* Breakfast & after school club

* Community space for meetings e.g. WI group, church groups.

* Storage for support material

With lots of planning to, we are calling on the children, parents and community to help us make this possible and ready for the Autumn term 2017.

BUDGET

The costs are coming in at £25k for the groundworks, building itself, crane to bring it in and fittings.  

We are committed to making sure that we use our money wisely so will be keeping a tight reign on the budget and looking at the best payment options that works for the school long term.  

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Firstly we are looking for parents and local community for those who can offer their skills for the project itself.   Builders, joiners, surveyors, electricians, decorators … we need a whole host of skills so please get in touch so we can pick your brain and maybe look to work on the project.  

We will also be looking for other local services to help on fundraising activities (see below for more information.)  Any connections you have that may be able to help – we would appreciate them too!    

FUNDRAISING

With no money from the local authority available for this project, it turns to ourselves to raise the necessary funds.   The current strategy is based on raising half of the funds from sponsorship and good old-fashioned fundraising.    If you have an idea, please get in touch.  

Current Total Raised: £791

SCHOOL CHILDREN

The Great Smartie Tube 20p Challenge – we had some exceptionally well behaved children in March as they helped out at home to earn their 20p’s and fill their Smartie tubes with £12.60 and beyond!  We raised an amazing £791

We have a wellbeing week when we will involve the children more to get their ideas on the centre so watch out for some creative designs; as well as understanding

FUN RUN – Sunday 11th June 

Queen Ethleburg’s School has kindly offered the use of their venue and we hope to  offer a couple of different runs so we can involve not just our pupils, but friends and family too for a great day of fun.   More information will follow and we are on the hunt for potential sponsors (see below).

We are looking for local business to support our goody bags, printers for roller banners and t-shirts for all runners.
