Within each of the schools in the federation, we have staff who are trained in the Thrive Approach. Thrive sessions can be small group or individual sessions. Thrive is used to help children that are having any sort of social or emotional difficulty including (but not limited to) low self-esteem, difficulty with friendships, coping with bereavement or separation, managing feelings such as anger or social communication difficulties.
Our Thrive practitioners also work with families. If you are worried about how your child is coping socially and emotionally at home, they are available to chat to and are happy to work with families to create Thrive home action plans.
If you want to know more about Thrive please ask to speak to one of our thrive practitioners, Mrs Aldred (Rosecroft) or Mrs Stringer (Attleborough) or the SENDCo (Mrs Barker).
What is Thrive?
We know that children learn best in school when they are happy and settled. At our school we are using the Thrive Approach to help us develop all our children’s emotional and social well-being. Thrive helps us to check children’s readiness to learn, to identify any gaps and then to plan to meet them. In this way we make sure that all our children have what they need to make the best progress in their learning.
We use the software tool Thrive-Online to screen all children in their class or work groups. The results help us to plan our social and emotional curriculum. We adapt what we teach to best meet the needs that are indicated. We also use Thrive-Online to assess and develop action plans for individual children. This ensures that the adults working with them understand their individual needs and are able to meet these most effectively.
Thrive Sessions are small group or individual sessions held within school and led by our licenced Thrive practitioners. Thrive is used to help children that are having any sort of social or emotional difficulty, for example, low self-esteem, difficulty with friendships, coping with bereavement or separation, managing feelings such as anger or social communication difficulties.
