The Thrive Approach is a systematic approach to the identification of emotional development needs in individuals. It uses arts and play-based activities which promotes a positive sense of self. The Thrive Approach integrates arts and creativity to support children’s emotional and social development. We want to develop healthy, happy, confident children who are ready and open to learning. The approach equips you to work in a targeted way with children and young people who have struggled with difficult life events to help them re-engage with life and learning. The Thrive Approach uses a developmental model to help us understand how we develop socially and emotionally from birth through to adulthood. The role of adults should be in facilitating a child’s development at each of the different stages. You choose appropriate, targeted interventions designed to meet those needs.
We currently have 5 members of staff who are ‘Thrive Licensed Practitioners’ and are developing a designated room for Thrive in the school.
