Boost your students’ achievements with Thrive®

At Thrive we promote age-appropriate social and emotional development of children and young people by helping adults know how to be and what to do, in response to their differing and sometimes challenging behaviour. With Ofsted proposing to look at both personal development and behaviour of students as separate judgements during inspection, the impact of the Thrive Approach® could not be more relevant.
Using established neuroscience, attachment theory and child development, Thrive has developed specialist training and an online profiling and action-planning tool. The Thrive Approach® uses innovations in technology to help you map and measure students’ progress, on a group and individual basis. You will develop evidence-based, targeted interventions that will ultimately re-engage your students with life and learning.

Cornish school improves attainment with Thrive

Berrycoombe Primary School in Bodmin serves a small community of 4 to 11 year olds. The headteacher felt that there was something more that could be done to enable more pupils to achieve age-related expectations, and introduced staff to the Thrive Approach. After profiling whole classes using Thrive-Online™ and training key staff in the Approach, Thrive action plans were created for classes and individuals.
Over a relatively short period this resulted in a calmer and more purposeful environment. This environment allowed the school to narrow the gap in attainment in the three key areas of reading, writing and maths.
After a year of Thrive being embedded across the school, 40 pupils needed one-to-one support. In the following year, this dramatically fell to just 17. Of those 17 working below age-related expectations, Thrive intervention has meant that their progress is expected to rise significantly.

Evidence of Thrive helping to close the gap

Brighter Futures is an outreach service working with vulnerable children in the Bath and North Somerset area, that uses the Thrive Approach. They commissioned independent impact evaluation research to look at the impact of Thrive. This evaluation showed that Thrive helped these children close the attainment gap in maths, reading, writing and speaking. Significant improvements were also found in attendance, managing feelings, listening and attention, managing relationships and self-confidence.

Course feedback from users of Thrive

Senior leaders have found Thrive training transformational to their policies and practice, and in creating more inclusive whole-school approaches. The impact of embedding Thrive has been evident in the delegate feedback.

One delegate told us, “I have a new found love for my job and the children have really benefitted from having Thrive in our setting. The knowledge and training we have received is priceless.” With Thrive implemented in their setting, they have enabled the successful development of children’s social and emotional skills.

Embedded as a whole school approach, Thrive provides the tools, skills and insights needed to better outcomes for all children. A delegate explains, “Thrive is the whole package – a great online framework to work from, backed up scientifically and developmentally. Simple, straightforward, easy to adopt yet highly effective.”
