The Thrive Approach
What does it take to develop healthy, happy, confident children who are ready and open to learning? Recent advances in neuroscience, attachment theory and child development have provided some of the answers to this question.
The Thrive Approach draws on insights from these fields to provide a powerful way of working with children and young people that supports optimal social and emotional development. In particular, the Approach equips you to work in a targeted way with children and young people who have struggled with difficult life events to help them reengage with life and learning (Taken from the Thrive Website - see link below).
At Leiston Primary School we educate the whole child and address a wide variety of needs that they may have. We have three fully training Thrive practitioners in school who support identified children through a range of small group and individual activities. The power of marbles in warm soapy water under your feet is amazing!
