Thrive gives us an insight into why children behave like they do. The Thrive Approach can provide you with pointers to help create positive experiences that support their wellbeing and build their emotional resilience. 

We use the Thrive approach to work in a targeted way with the children who may be struggling socially, emotionally or with difficult life events. Our experienced Thrive team support the children to re-engage with learning and life.

The provision we have at Bothal Primary offers a safe, secure, calm and supportive environment for the children who need time to regulate their emotions to allow them to return to the classroom. We are able to engage the children through targeted interventions which involves arts and play based activities. These include sand play, arts and crafts, beach school, story telling, music, drama, dance and painting. All of these have benefits and strengths and the use of creativity integrated into their day will support the children’s social and emotional development.

At Bothal Primary, we adopt a whole school Thrive approach, ensuring that the children receive consistent, positive messages on coping and dealing with their strong emotions from every member of staff. 

Many of you will be familiar with Thrive and appreciate the support that your child receives both in school and at home.
