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 insight 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 an learning.
The Thrive Approach at Catcote Academy
Catcote Academy has embraced the Thrive approach. We have 6 members of Staff who are qualified Thrive practitioners. The practitioners work one to one with identified students and support the rest of the school Staff to embed the approach across the school through pastoral and PSHE lessons.
This year we are training another 3 staff to become licensed Practitioners to increase the number of students we are able to support on a one to one basis.
