The Thrive Approach

Welfare/pastoral arrangements

The Thrive Approach applies the latest research about neuroscience, attachment, creativity, play and child development. Our sense of well-being relies on us being safe, feeling special and having our needs met. These things are the foundation of a good internal “stress management system,” meaning that we can be resilient and able to calm down quickly after experiencing powerful emotions rather than reacting explosively. Thrive Practitioners are specially trained to help children to express their feelings safely through arts and play, to recognise a range of emotions, to develop a good stress management system and to support any children who need to change inappropriate or unsafe behaviours.

We know that children need to feel safe and happy at school in order to make progress in their lessons and fulfil their potential. We will use the Thrive Approach across the whole school to support the children as they learn to think about their emotions, choices and friendships so that they are able to develop into confident, skilful young people who enjoy learning and respect each other.

Every class will be assessed by their teachers which will enable them to plan PSHE lessons and Circle Times personalised for the needs of their children. Thrive practitioners will support children who need more targeted intervention when something has knocked them off track emotionally or to improve their behaviour. Wherever possible the practitioner will work alongside parents and teachers to assess individual children and create action plans for both home and school.
