Initially conceived as a way of tackling the issue of school exclusions, Thrive now offers a whole-setting approach to supporting the right-time social and emotional development of all children and young people.
The Thrive Approach consists of Thrive-Online, a web-based assessment and monitoring tool, and training. Thrive training focuses on the emotional needs of different age groups informed by established neuroscience and attachment research, as well as child development studies and research into risk and resilience factors.
Based in Devon, Thrive is a business that works with schools and other settings across Great Britain, as well as in Australia. To date, more than 34,000 staff have received Thrive training, ensuring that around 400,000 children have access to the Thrive Approach, changing lives and increasing educational attainment levels.
