Thrive Approach

What is Thrive?

Thrive is an approach which uses advances in neuroscience to help us to understand how we develop socially and emotionally from birth through to adulthood.  The Thrive Approach is a specific way of working with children that helps to develop their social and emotional well-being.  The Thrive Approach offers practical, effective tools and techniques that work closely alongside an online assessment and action planning tool, all of which are underpinned by a programme of training and mentoring support.   Thrive provides targeted interventions to help support and enhance our pupils’ emotional and social well-being.    Here at Blakedown, we feel that by embedding the Thrive Approach we are supporting the development of happy, confident children who are more self-assured and therefore ready and open to learning.   

Our practitioners are fully trained to deliver group and one-to-one Thrive support as well as support all staff in the delivery of the approach across school.  Meet our practitioners below.
