  • The Thrive Approach®

    For over 25 years, Thrive has been working with schools, settings and organisations to support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. Thrive equips educators with training, resources and an award-winning online tool, so they can better understand children and young people’s needs and provide targeted, effective support. With its focus on building secure relationships and providing positive experiences, Thrive helps young people to feel safe, supported and ready to learn.

  • Building positive relationships

    The connections children and young people have with the adults around them are key to their social and emotional development. Thrive activities focus on providing positive experiences and building trusting relationships. This helps young people to:

    • Feel good about themselves and know that they matter

    • Feel safe and secure in school

    • Improve their emotional wellbeing

    • Improve their capacity to be creative and curious

    • Build their self-esteem and confidence to learn

    • Recognise and manage their feelings

    • Think before behaving in a certain way...and much more!

  • How does it work?

    Thrive equips educators with strategies and activities to help build young people’s social and emotional skills, as well as develop their ability to manage stress and take on life’s ups and downs. The Approach is underpinned by neuroscience, attachment theory and child development research and is suitable for children and young people aged 0-25 years.

  • What difference does Thrive make?

    Schools that have adopted the Thrive Approach have reported many benefits. These include calmer classrooms with fewer disruptions, improved attendance, reduced exclusions and higher achievements. To hear first-hand from settings already using Thrive, visit mythrive.uk/case_studies.

  • How will my child be involved in Thrive?

    Your child will be profiled using Thrive-Online, an award-winning tool used to measure and monitor social and emotional development. Thrive-Online has behaviour and skills surveys that help staff to see where young people are in their development and identify any pupils who could benefit from additional support. Thrive-Online profiling will be led by school practitioners who will:

    • Assess classes, groups and individuals to see where they are in their social and emotional development

    • Create targeted action plans to help pupils to manage their behaviour, build emotional resilience and become more open to learning

    • Measure and report on progress over time
