Thrive is a therapeutic approach to help support children with their emotional and social development.
At Goresbrook, we believe it is vital to address our pupils’ emotional developmental needs, as by doing this, we help them build resilience and resourcefulness which helps them both in and out of our school setting.
By using Thrive's online assessment tools, our Thrive Practitioners quickly identify children's emotional development so they can provide support and action plans for their individual and behavioural needs.
Differentiated provisions as well as practical strategies and techniques are put in to place to ensure every child has opportunities to develop their emotional and social skills, improve their emotional wellbeing and develop their emotional literacy.
The Thrive Curriculum at Goresbrook School provides children with opportunities to build upon all Thrive strands including: Being, Doing, Thinking, Power and Identity and Skills and Structure.
As a school, we not only provide Thrive 1-1 and group sessions, but also whole class lessons, planned and resourced by a trained Thrive practitioner.
These sessions are designed to make best use of life’s learning opportunities through many practical activities such a sand tray play, art sessions, role play and much more.
In addition to helping children, we aim to support our parents too. At Goresbrook, we offer Thrive parental workshops, for those wishing to learn more about the Thrive Approach and its practical, every day application to family life.
Not only do our children love the Thrive approach, but so do our staff. Our Thrive curriculum allows us to experience the personal and professional rewards of helping children and young people learn about their emotions and regulate their own behaviour; improve attendance and attainment by helping children and young people to engage with learning and strengthen links with our parents and carers, ensuring a joined-up approach to supporting children and young people's emotional and social needs.
