Adopting the Thrive Approach at a special school delivers significant positive changes allowing children and young people that have unique needs to feel supported, better equipped to manage their emotions and positive about learning.
All children and young people have different needs and many pupils in special schools may have previously had negative experiences of education that can result in issues with distressed behaviour and attendance.
Embedding Thrive across a special school setting enables pupils to feel safe and able to engage with learning.
In practice, Thrive in special school settings can include morning briefings, targets and strategies for learners with individual needs, breaks for physical activity and establishing a dedicated Thrive room where children can relax and express themselves.
