City of Glasgow Nurture Group Pilot Scheme Evaluation
Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, v10 n4 p245-253 2005
Three forms of objective evaluation were used to assess the impact of a nurture group pilot project on the lives of staff and pupils: Boxall Profiles, the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire, and questionnaires for staff. In addition, a micro study was carried out of two nurture groups using matched control groups. The article provides an overview of the project, as there was insufficient time for in-depth examination of the results, and some materials became available too late for inclusion. Nevertheless, the outcomes described are positive. It is hoped that analysis can be continued and that further evaluation of the progress of children can be carried out with more robust control groups in place from the outset.
