“Students are able to regulate, settle, trust our staff and reengage successfully with learning.”

How a little understanding of brain development can go a long way.

Throughout our life, experiences continually shape our brains and thanks to brain plasticity, we continue to learn, acquire new skills and form new memories.

There are many reasons why children’s and young people’s behaviour may change as they grow, so having some knowledge of brain development can be useful for educators, to help understand why a child or young person may be behaving in a certain way.

Understanding neuroscience makes an impact.                        

Leaders and staff from The Elland Academy reflect on how the neuroscience that underpins Thrive has reengaged pupils with their learning and supported families at home too. Jo Pittard, Executive Principal of Alternative Provision, Delta Academy Trust says:
“Students are able to regulate, settle and trust our staff and reengage successfully with learning.”
We also hear from Victoria Williams from Fortis Academy who explains how the neuroscience that underpins Thrive allows her to better understand what might be happening to a young person and explain this behaviour to others.
