Every child needs to feel valued, involved and appreciated. We know more now than ever before about what helps to develop healthy curious minds and happy, confident and creative children. If children have been emotionally thrown off track, either temporarily or over longer periods, Thrive helps us understand the needs being signalled by their behaviour and gives us targeted strategies and activities to help them re-engage. As a school we have been using Thrive to inform our work with some of our most vulnerable children. So far this has been on a 1.2.1 and small group level. From September 2019 we will be rolling it out across the school so that everyone can benefit from the programme. If you’d like to discuss this further then please see your child’s class teacher or catch a member of SLT on the school gate in the morning.
