Saint Kevin's College Wellbeing

Here at Saint Kevin's College, we offer a range of support strategies to maintain and improve wellbeing across all year groups.

What is the Positivity Pod?

  • The Positivity pod can accommodate individuals or small groups at any one time in an unconventional classroom.

  • It is designed to be a safe place that helps young people to cope with the demands of school and develop the skills and confidence need to participate in school life.

The pod centres around the ‘Six principles of Nurture Groups’, which are: 

  • Students’ learning is understood and responded to developmentally

  • The Nurture Room offers a safe and predictable environment where adults are reliable and set firm boundaries

  • Students are valued and responded to as individuals to support their self-esteem

  • Language is a vital means of communication

  • All behaviour is communication

  • Transition is important

Which students does the Nurture Room support?

The Nurture Room is open to all, however students who need extra help to settle and listen or build their self-confidence will benefit most from this resource.

Who manages the Nurture Group?

The group is planned and delivered by Claire Conlin, our Pod Co-coordinator. Claire works closely with Mrs. MacDonald Pastoral Vice Principal and the rest of the school pastoral care team.
