Thrive Activities for Parents and Children
WHAT IS THE THRIVE APPROACH?
We know that children learn best in school when they are happy and settled. At Abercarn we are using the Thrive Approach to help us develop our pupils’ emotional and social well-being. Thrive helps us to check children’s readiness to learn, to identify any gaps and then plan to meet them. Through doing so, we will be able to make sure that all of our pupils have what they need to make the best possible progress in their learning.
WHY ARE WE A THRIVE SCHOOL
Positive relationships are at the heart of Thrive. We will use these relationships, together with play and creative activities, to give children key experiences at each different stage of their development.
Thrive teaches the understanding of children’s behaviour as communication, improves learning skills and leads to greater attainment.
It promotes productive learning for all children.
It supports practitioners, providing them with confidence to work with more challenging and vulnerable children, and with parents and integrated teams.
It leads to better relationships at home and in school.
