We are Thrive schools, looking to incorporate the Thrive Approach into daily practice across the Infant and Junior schools.
Introduction to Thrive:
Our aim is for Thrive to be a whole school approach, providing a common language to support all children to engage in life and learning. All adults have a role to play in this way of thinking, which puts trusting relationships with key adults at the heart of approach.
Based on neuroscience, attachment theory and developmental stages, the Thrive approach helps children to develop emotional resilience to engage in learning and life. Strategies that are used are largely based around Creative Arts and play, as these activities provide a pre-foundation to learning whilst helping to build neuropathways in a child’s brain.
The St Saviour’s Schools have Licensed Thrive practitioners who are working to develop The Thrive Approach across the schools. St Saviour’s are currently in the process of developing Thrive spaces, have had whole staff training about Thrive and profile the whole school at key points throughout the year. This enables us to initially provide targeted whole class Thrive support which can be everyday interactions, targeted group work or whole class activities.
Please see the attached parent guide for further information about the Thrive Approach, how it works and how your child may be involved in Thrive.
