Ingredients For Success
How is the Project Sustainable
The project continues through the use of cascaded learning.
What are the Long Term Impacts
Research from Thrive suggests:
Thrive closes the gap for vulnerable children across a range of measures including attainment, behaviour, relationships, self-confidence and attendance. (Rose, McGuire-Snieckus, Wood (2015). Independent Impact Report. Bath: Bath Spa University).
Thrive helps to develop resilience in young people. (Hart A, Heaver B (2015). Resilience Approaches to Supporting Young People’s Mental Health: Appraising the Evidence Base for Schools and Communities. Brighton: University of Brighton/Boingboing.
Staff using the Thrive Approach feel more equipped to manage behaviour and better able to support more vulnerable children. (Office for Public Management (2013). Therapeutic early interventions to prevent school exclusion and truancy: evaluation of three contemporaneous projects. London: Office for Public Management).
Area Most Impacted
Mental Health Wellbeing
Embedding Thrive - Nelson Infant School and Wensum Junior School
Anna Catlin, Assistant Headteacher at Nelson Infant School and Wensum Junior School, talks about how they have embedded the Thrive approach and created a Thrive Hub.
Implementing the Thrive approach - The Free School Norwich
School staff underwent training in the Thrive approach and Senior Leadership Team Thrive training funded by the Norwich Opportunity Area (NOA) and then implemented the Thrive approach at The Free School Norwich to benefit the emotional and social needs of its pupils.
Thrive - Happy Tots Pre-School
After completing the Thrive training we have been supporting a small number of children with targets to support their wellbeing and their resilience.
Thrive Awareness Course - Morland Primary
The Pastoral Care Manager and myself went on a Thrive awareness course, one of the hour-long sessions, and came away convinced that was what we needed at Morland CEVC Primary School. It evolved from a wider issue concerning attainment and barriers to learning.
