THRIVE

At North Wheatley C of E Primary, our first priority is to care for every child in a secure, friendly environment enabling them to enjoy their time in school and feel confident to learn. In order to maintain this ethos, the staff team work together to support children's emotional and social learning. We maintain this attitude during lesson times, break times and through all activities that take place throughout the day to make sure our children feel secure in school. This method is called the Thrive Approach.

 

 

What is the Thrive Approach?

Thrive supports children with their emotional health, well-being and social skills, all of which are needed for learning to take place. Children cannot always put their needs into words, but the way children behave can tell us a lot about how they are feeling.

 

The Thrive Approach is based on up to date brain science and research into child development and helps staff in school to adapt their approach to individual children to build self-esteem, well-being and behaviour. It provides targeted strategies and activities to help children re-engage with learning and life.

 

Why do we need Thrive?

Unfortunately, like all of us at some point in our lives, children may face challenges that knock them off course. What is needed then is understanding and support to get them back on track. Many children will respond to the care, understanding and support given by parents, family, friends and teachers. However, some children need a little bit extra.

 

What extra support can school offer?

Children who need a little bit of extra help are identified through our whole-class profiling process, by class teachers, or through communication with families or outside agencies. For some children, there may be an obvious reason why they need a bit of extra support. This might be bereavement, family break down or an identified medical condition such as ADHD. For others, there can be no obvious trigger to why they are finding some aspects of school and/or home life difficult.

 

Following an initial assessment, and identification of children's social, emotional and behavioural needs, we are able to build a bespoke Thrive Action Plan of activities to support their needs.
