Success at school leads to success in life. Children and young people who attend school regularly attain well, learn to make friends, and are significantly more likely to find skilled employment, to avoid antisocial or criminal behaviour and to enjoy good mental health. Most children start school with confidence and enthusiasm, but some do not. They do not respond to the teaching offered, either withdrawing or behaving aggressively to teachers and fellow pupils. These children will make little progress and may reach the stage of exclusion, a damaging experience for the child and sometimes the last straw that leads troubled families to breakdown. They also have a profound and negative effect on other pupils, interfering with their work, taking more than their share of their teacher’s attention and generally lowering class morale. Much of this can be prevented. For more than 40 years, nurture groups have been demonstrating that, with the right help and support, such children and young people can successfully and cost-effectively be included in mainstream schools.
