Answers to frequently asked questions about Thrive and the Thrive Approach.
Our mission is to help children and young people become more emotionally resilient and better placed to engage with life and learning.
We do this through our whole-school approach to wellbeing - proven to improve attendance, behaviour and attainment.
Thrive tools, training and evidence-based practices have been developed over 25 years for professionals working in education – individual nurseries and schools, multi-academy trusts (MATs), local authorities and diocese - as well as those in social care, the healthcare sector and supporting families in the community.
