Multi-Academy Trusts

Balancing wellbeing and performance metrics across large groups of settings can be challenging, however the two are in fact inherently linked. The Thrive Approach helps multi-academy trusts prioritise mental health and wellbeing across their schools, supporting the emotional health of all students - with no one slipping through the net.

Wellbeing and performance

Thrive currently works with a number of multi-academy trusts across the UK and can be easily embedded into everyday practice. Our approach is easy-to-use, allows you to track and monitor results, and provides clear evidence of development to external agencies through Thrive-OnlineTM (TOL).

This allows the MATs we work with to improve behaviour, attendance, exclusions rates and learning readiness - avoiding costly interventions.

Your Multi-Academy Trust’s Thrive Journey

Although every multi-academy trust has its own requirements and objectives, there is one simple route you can follow to start your Thrive journey today. The option below can be adjusted to accommodate different budget levels and setting types while allowing you to implement Thrive in your settings as a whole school approach.

Start your Thrive journey by joining over 2800 settings in the UK already using Thrive to improve the emotional wellbeing and attainment of the children and young people in their setting.

Multi-academy trust Thrive Journey

Multi-Academy Trust route

To ensure that there is full support and understanding of how to develop a whole setting wellbeing programme throughout your schools, one senior leadership team member of each one of your settings attends our Leading Emotionally Healthy Settings course.

This is followed by one or two staff members from each of your schools joining our Licensed Practitioner training; learning how to be and what to do in response to children's varying, and often complex, social and emotional needs.

To equip all of the staff from each of your schools with the fundamental concepts and language of Thrive, all staff attend our Thrive Whole-School Induction.

This route gives you the best possible start to implementing Thrive as a school wide approach throughout your schools.
