Seaton Sluice First School is absolutely over the moon to now be a THRIVE school! We are committed to prioritising the well-being of our pupils to prevent mental health issues arising.
The THRIVE Approach has evolved over the last 25 years, providing those who work with children and young people with the knowledge, skills and tools to optimise social and emotional development. Thrive is committed to supporting and encouraging the development of confident, curious, creative and capable children and young people who are open to learning and better equipped to deal with life's ups and downs.
The connections children and young people have with the adults around them is key. Repetition of positive experiences developed through THRIVE activities supports their development, helping them to:
  • feel good about themselves and know that they matter
  • increase their sense of security and trust
  • increase their emotional wellbeing
  • improve their capacity to be creative and curious
  • increase their self-esteem and confidence to learn
  • learn to recognise and regulate their feelings
  • learn to think before behaving in a certain way
  • and much more!!!!!
How does it work?
Appropriate for all children from birth to adulthood, the THRIVE approach draws on the latest research into brain science, child development theory and attachment theory. It helps us to understand how the brain develops, and how parents, carers, teachers and other professionals can best support this development by providing the best experiences for the children at each stage.
What difference does THRIVE make?
Schools that have adopted the THRIVE approach have reported a wealth of benefits. These include calmer children, less disruptions in class, improved attendance, reduced exclusions and higher achievements. The knock-on effect of this can be better parent-school relationships and improved staff morale.
