At Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School, the children and their well-being are at the heart of everything we do. The Thrive Approach promotes children’s and young people’s positive mental health by helping adults know how to be and what to do in response to their differing and sometimes distressed behaviour. We have recently become a Thrive school, with all the children in our care being supported to understand and manage their emotions and well-being. Some children might be identified for additional support with Mrs. Howes-Jones or Mrs. Parvin, our Thrive practitioners. Personalised action plans are made to enable the children to flourish and learn in both the classroom and beyond.
Every classroom has adopted the Thrive Approach, using key language and strategies to support the children on a daily basis. Weekly activities are carefully chosen to support the children to become comfortable and aware of their emotions and behaviours, in an endeavour to manage them independently in the future. The benefits of Thrive will enable the children to leave us on their life long journey, being equipped to deal with any challenges that might occur in their lives.
