Children come to school to learn, and those with a strong sense of wellbeing are more able to make the most of the opportunities available to them.
The Thrive approach is a way of assessing and supporting a child's emotional and social development. These assessments can then be used to provide personalised programmes for classes, groups and individuals.
Every child will be supported through the school-wide Thrive approach. An initial assessment will enable class teachers to identify particular strands to work on, such as how to have different opinions without falling out or how to recognise when someone is unhappy or upset.
We currently have Ms Faulkner is our trained Thrive practitioner at Whyteleafe based in the Wishing Well. As a school we recognise the value in preparing children emotionally for the challenges they face in life.
