A whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing is a collaborative effort to improve outcomes for children and young people.
It involves identifying and addressing the needs of pupils, staff and the wider community and creating an environment that removes barriers to learning.
In line with Public Health England’s 8 principles of a whole school approach, Thrive provides expert training and an online tool that will empower you to not only promote mental health and wellbeing, but improve behaviour, attendance and attainment throughout your setting.
A whole school approach is most effective when it is championed and role modelled by the leadership team from the top down.
The Department for Education is encouraging schools and colleges to identify a Senior Mental Health Lead who is responsible for overseeing their setting’s whole school or college approach.
Thrive offers DfE quality-assured training for Senior Mental Health Leads which is fully funded for schools and colleges in England.
For the senior leaders and classroom staff at over 2,800 settings, the Thrive Approach is reducing exclusions, boosting attendance and improving behaviour. But don’t just take our word for it – dive into our case studies and hear from the inspiring educators transforming lives through a whole school approach to wellbeing.
"Children can come into our busy setting feeling quite overwhelmed and unsettled and the Thrive Approach is the quickest way to help them move past that."
