At St Joseph’s, we are proud to be recognised as a Thrive ambassador school. Mrs Deluca, Miss Seymour and Miss Smith are our licensed practitioners.
We know that children learn best in school when they are happy and settled. At St Joseph’s we are using the Thrive Approach to help us develop our pupil’s emotional and social well-being.
Thrive helps us to check children’s readiness to learn, to identify any gaps and then plan to meet them. Through doing so, we will be able to make sure that all our pupils have what they need to make the best possible progress in their learning.
Thrive is a way of assessing and supporting children’s emotional and social development, which can then be used to provide personalised programmes for classes, groups and individuals.
All class teachers have used a tool called Thrive-Online to screen their classes
The results will help them to plan their social and emotional curriculum and teaching will be adapted to best meet the needs that are indicated. Strategies and activities are suggested which can be built into lessons and work.
