‘Learning Together, Learning For Life’




At Henry Green, we have two fully trained Thrive Practitioners.... Ms Long & Ms Galbraith.   THRIVE is a dynamic, developmental approach to working with children that supports their emotional and social wellbeing. It is based on the latest research in neuroscience, attachment theory and child development, drawing on research into the role of creativity and play in developing emotional resilience. THRIVE draws on an understanding of six 'building blocks' of development and growth that comes online sequentially and remains throughout life.


All children in school have a THRIVE online assessment, completed by their teacher twice a year, this allows classes to work at their ‘right time’ of social and emotional learning. THRIVE assessments also allows us to addresses interruptions that children might be experiencing. Children come to school to learn, but some are not ready or able to do so. They may move appropriately through each stage and then encounter a life experience that creates a setback, as happens to us all at times. At these times pupils may exhibit behaviours that are challenging and disruptive, restless or withdrawn. Current brain science shows, for many of these children, their stress management, emotional regulation and seeking /exploring systems are not yet sufficiently developed for them to access learning, or are set back to our earliest levels of need through trauma. THRIVE provides a systematic approach to the early identification of emotional developmental need so that differentiated provision to address those needs can be put in place quickly by our THRIVE practioners through 1:1 or group work. As the children’s emotional and social development needs are met, they re-engage with life and learning.
