Thrive provides the tools, skills and insights needed to help children become more emotionally resilient

Grounded in established neuroscience, attachment theory and child development, the Thrive Approach has been developed over the past 25 years and draws on a wealth of experience in social work, psychotherapy and education. As a result of implementing the Thrive Approach, children and young people are better placed to engage with their learning and with life.

What is Thrive?

  • Help with anxiety 
  • Help with emotional wellbeing 
  • Help to build self confidence 
  • Look at positive ways to manage emotions.
  • Help to manage behaviours in a calm manner.

How Thrive helps to embed a whole-school approach to nurture.

  • Students needing extra 'Thrive' support are identified by yearly SDQ tests, monitoring behaviour and attendance reports, teacher and parental referrals and self-referral. 
  • Regular staff training on fine-tuning their nurturing skills and how to build resilience in classrooms.
  • Trained Thrive mentors offer 1:1 support to Year 7 students and are available at lunchtimes to help with conflict resolution and provide support for students who are struggling to socialise.
  • Group work on building esteem, anger management, grief, behaviour management and positive relationships.
  • 1:1 support is offered for students who have more complex issues.
  • Working with the Behaviour and Welfare team to support students build positive behaviour for learning skills.
