Supporting to thrive

Adolescence can be a challenging experience for young people. As their bodies begin to change shape, their brain also goes into a period of neuronal change. This offers an important opportunity to reshape their stress-regulation system and to support young people to develop a different sense of themselves and their capacities. Understanding how the brain grows and develops throughout this period, and using evidence-based practices that improve emotional health and mental wellbeing, helps us to make the most of opportunities to support young people to be emotionally and mentally healthy - allowing them to learn well.

Thrive gives you the tools to reduce disruptive behaviour and exclusions, raise attendance, and improve attainment throughout your setting, allowing you to identify, address and monitor the progress of young people's social and emotional needs. This empowers young people to better understand and manage their emotions and behaviour in creative and transformative ways.

 All young people need positive relationships, emotionally healthy environments and routines that support mental wellbeing. Thrive will help you to reduce stress, make the most of your existing resources and develop your well-being practice as a whole setting.
