What is THRIVE?
"The Thrive Approach is a dynamic, developmental and trauma-sensitive approach to meeting the emotional and social needs of children." (THRIVE). Mickleton Primary School is committed to embedding THRIVE across the school to support emotional health and well being of all children in both key stages.
Here at Mickleton we use THRIVE to identify individual children who may need support in at least one of these particular areas. Our SENDCO leads a weekly THRIVE session where children are supported on a one to one basis in the THRIVE learning area. They take part in activities such as mindfulness, play therapy, painting, puppetry and music. The THRIVE approach continue back in class where every child identified has an action plan which is shared with the class teacher and Teaching assistant. These actions ensure consistency in approach in all areas around school.
