Rainbow Class

At Beanfield Primary School we aim to equip each child with the social and emotional skills needed, to deal confidently and calmly with the trials and tribulations of life, for life. 

Rainbow Class is a Nurture group facility that supports children by removing barriers to learning. Activities are well planned in response to the children’s needs in terms of their social and emotional wellbeing. We do this by providing learning experiences at a child’s developmental stage, with a focus on play, emotional literacy and social skills. 

As the children learn academically and socially they develop confidence, become responsive to others, learn self-respect and take pride in behaving well and in achieving. 

Who is Rainbow Class for? 

Any of these factors might indicate a child who would benefit from attending Rainbow Class: 

  • A child who is withdrawn and difficult to engage. 
  • A child whose behaviour is continually disruptive with no SEN factors. 
  • An academic child who may not be emotionally secure. 
  • A child whose sense of wellbeing is poor and self-esteem is very low. 
  • A child who struggles to interact socially with adults and peers. 
  • A child who seeks attention constantly but is never satisfied. 
  • A child who is frequently late or absent. 
  • A child who hasn’t developed basic skills needed to function productively in their class- immature, poor concentration, poor organisational skills and communication skills 

    The 6 principles underpinning Rainbow Class: 
  • Children's learning is understood developmentally  
  • The classroom offers a safe base - the day is clearly structured and adults are reliable, firm and consistent 
  • The importance of nurture for the development of wellbeing 
  •  Verbal language and body language is a vital means of communication 
  • All behaviour is a form of communication  
  • The importance of transition in children's lives – The staff in Rainbow Class work alongside class teachers and parents during a child’s time at Rainbow Class.
