What is Thrive?

The Thrive Approach helps to support children to develop their social and emotional wellbeing, enabling them to engage with life and learning. It supports them in becoming more self-assured, capable and adaptable, providing a firm foundation for academic achievement.

Positive relationships are at the heart of Thrive. Here at Grangetown Primary we use these relationships, together with play and creative activities, to give children key experiences at each different stage of their development.

With the use of whole class and individual action plans, we can provide all children with the support they need to become well-rounded individuals and truly allow every child to thrive.

At Grangetown Primary, we have adopted 4 guiding principles:

◊ Every child is a unique person, constantly developing and learning in different ways and at different rates, each with his/her own abilities, talents and potential to be fulfilled.

◊ Children’s healthy development, emotional well-being and learning are crucially dependent upon, and promoted through, positive relationships.

◊ Children flourish when they are confident, self-assured, capable and resilient.

◊ Children thrive in enabling environments, in which their individual development, learning experiences and needs are understood, responded to and supported through strong partnerships with parents/carers.

How will my child be involved in Thrive?
We use a screening tool and activity planning resource called Thrive-Online. This allows us to assess children and to develop class, group or individual action plans with specific strategies and activities to ensure that they are as emotionally and socially supported as they can be.

At Grangetown Primary, all children access Thrive, through trained staff, our mental health suite and timetabled sessions. Children may also be offered, group and 1:1 sessions to support them further if required.

For more information about the Thrive Approach, please contact Miss Small (Thrive Lead and Trained Practitioner) or Miss Bashford (Trained Practitioner).
