Thrive approach

We are a school which is embracing the Thrive approach.  Two of our staff are licensed Thrive practitioners and the approach is threaded through the whole school.
What is the Thrive approach?

The Thrive approach website explains that recent advances in neuroscience, attachment theory and child development have provided some of the answers to what it takes to develop healthy, happy, confident children who are ready and open to learning.

The Thrive Approach draws on insights from these fields to provide a powerful way of working with children and young people that supports optimal social and emotional development. In addition, the Approach can equip you to work in a targeted way with children and young people who may have struggled with difficult life events to help them re-engage with life and learning.

What does it look like in school?

We use the acronym PLACE:  the people in our school are playful, loving, accepting, curious and empathetic.  School is a safe and nurturing place for children to grow and learn about themselves, others and the wider society and environment.  We plan activities, lessons, events and interventions, as needed, to help the whole child to grow.  We use art, craft, music, movement, discussion, games, time to talk and any opportunity that arises across the curriculum to achieve this.
