 Let's help every child thrive.



If you are interested in finding out further information about the Thrive approach, please view the Thrive website or contact Miss Morgan for further information.

What is Thrive?


Thrive is a therapeutic approach to help support children with their emotional and social development.


The Thrive approach offers practical strategies and techniques and is built around online assessments which identify children’s emotional development and provides action plans for their individual needs.

Research has shown that how we behave is linked to how we feel and our emotions are linked to how we learn. By teaching children to recognise and notice these feelings and emotions it can help with their development and learning.


Children sometimes need some extra support with their emotional growth and this can be temporary or over a longer period of time.


Thrive promotes their emotional and social growth by building positive relationships between a child and their peers and helps them explore and understand their feelings through various activities.

When might my child benefit from Thrive?


Many children experience difficulties during their time at school. These may include:

  • Difficulties with friendships.

  • Getting into trouble at playtime.

  • Finding it hard to settle in the classroom.

  • Finding it difficult to manage their strong feelings.

  • Not knowing who to turn to when feelings are too big to manage on their own.

What will happen in a Thrive session?


The session may be on an individual basis or as part of a small group of children. During each session there will be an activity which may include:

  • Story telling

  • Circle games

  • Arts and crafts

  • Sand play

  • Movement and relaxation
