Primary Schools

Embedded as a whole-setting approach within a primary school, Thrive not only supports the social and emotional development of all children but also helps to manage distressed behaviour and reduce exclusions.

Enabling Learning

At such a crucial time in children’s development, using a positive relational stance, through play, creativity and the arts, the Thrive Approach helps primary settings make the most of pupil’s learning opportunities – helping to manage distressed behaviour and reduce exclusions. Seizing these, and meeting developmental needs at the right-time, helps pupils become more resilient and open to learning.

In practice, Thrive offers primary settings practical strategies and skills to improve emotional wellbeing and social wellbeing; increasing attendance, reducing anxiety and enhance learning. This can involve creating dedicated Thrive spaces, engaging children in art activities that reduce stress and developing an underlying focus on the wellbeing of pupils, staff and parents.
