Local Authority, Trust or Diocese-wide implementation


How can I implement Thrive across a local authority, multi-academy trust or diocese?

Balancing wellbeing and performance metrics across large groups of settings can be challenging. However, the two are in fact linked.

The Thrive Approach helps local authorities, multi-academy trusts and dioceses prioritise mental health and wellbeing across their schools, supporting the social and emotional health of all students - with no one slipping through the net.

The Approach is easy-to-use, allows you to track and monitor results, and provides clear evidence of development to external agencies through Thrive-Online

How does a local authority, trust or diocese-wide implementation work?


1. Training tailored to your requirements

Individual and whole staff training is provided to schools and settings, ensuring everyone understands the principles and language of Thrive and how to embed it as a whole school initiative. This provides consistency and a shared understanding across multi-site organisations. Training includes: Leading Emotionally Healthy Settings, Licensed Practitioner Training and a Whole School Induction.


2. Identify social and emotional needs using Thrive-Online

Settings profile groups, classes and individuals to see where they are in their social and emotional development and create action plans for those who need additional support. Reporting dashboards provide visibility at a central and group-wide level. Learn more about Thrive-Online.


3. Implement targeted action plans

After identifying the needs of their pupils, practitioners choose practical strategies and activities to help pupils to manage their behaviour, build emotional resilience and become more open to learning.


4. Monitor progress, report and demonstrate impact

Track the difference Thrive is making, share progress easily with key stakeholders and demonstrate return on investment. Schools are empowered to make data-informed decisions, identify best practice and share their learning with other settings within the organisation.


5. Connect attendance, behaviour and wellbeing data

Thrive-Online is the only wellbeing profiling tool in the UK to integrate seamlessly with your MIS platform, providing concrete data on the real impact of your investment.
