Thrive & Welfare Support

We want all the children in our community to flourish, so we have introduced The Thrive Approach in order to support their emotional and social development. Our aim is to help your children feel happy and secure, able to enjoy friendships, relate well to others and be ready and able to learn.

We recognise the impact a child’s emotional development has on their overall achievement and have developed a whole school approach with specific provision within our curriculum designed to help the children with their emotional and social skills.

We use a dynamic developmental approach to help children learn how to understand their emotions, regulate and manage their own behaviours. This approach is known as THRIVE and is used by schools across our learning community and nationally. It is based on scientific research and informed by up to date neuroscience.

The whole school commitment the ‘Thrive’ approach impacts positively on pupils’ emotional and mental well-being, ensuring that they are confident in securing healthy relationships and stay safe from abuse and exploitation.

The school places great importance on the welfare of its pupils and employs a Welfare Manager, Mrs Varley, to support pupils with their everyday concerns. Mrs Varley works closely with the wider community to ensure that support from the relevant outside agencies is available to our pupils in order to improve their welfare provision.
