The Thrive Approach

We are very proud to be a school that has embraced the Thrive approach.

The Thrive Approach is a dynamic, developmental and trauma-sensitive approach to meeting the emotional and social needs of children. Thrive helps adults prepare children and young people for life’s emotional ups and downs. As a result, children become more self-assured and ready to engage with life and learning.

The Thrive approach gives us the tools to develop healthy, happy confident children who are ready to learn and cope with challenges in their learning and lives. Thrive is based on the latest advances in neuroscience, attachment theory and child development with a strong focus on helping children identify and express their emotions in a healthy way.

Our school have been implementing Thrive over a number of years through a whole school approach with weekly sessions for all children. Further targeted support is available for those children identified with additional needs through small group and individual sessions with our fully Licensed Thrive Practitioners.
