Thrive Approach

We recognise that, for some children, school is not always an easy experience. The Thrive Approach at Campsmount Children occasionally face social and emotional challenges which can impact on their learning. 

The Thrive Approach believes that every child needs to feel that they belong, that they matter, and that they are valued for their unique qualities.  Like all of us at some point in our lives, children face challenges that knock them off course. What is needed is understanding and support to get them back on track. 

We have developed a Thrive room and a Parent room within Campsmount which will both allow us to work more closely with school staff, external agencies, families, parents, carers and students in relaxed settings.  Thrive Room at Campsmount

The Thrive Approach is used at Campsmount to teach students:

  • what their behaviour means
  • new ways of responding
  • ways to reshape their stress
  • management systems
  • how to improve their emotional resilience
  • increased emotional literacy
  • greater ability to engage with life and learning

How does it work at Campsmount?

The Thrive approach is a way of assessing and supporting children’s emotional and social development. These assessments can then be used to provide personalised programmes for classes, groups and individuals. Parent room at Campsmount

Every child will be supported through the school-wide Thrive approach. An initial assessment will enable class teachers to identify particular topics to work on, such as how to have different opinions without falling out or how to recognise when someone is unhappy or upset.

Children who need more support will meet regularly with a trained Thrive practitioner in small groups or one-to-one, to focus on their learning needs together.

With the support of Thrive, we will work with parents to help children and young people to:

  • Feel good about themselves
  • Know that they matter
  • Become more resilient and resourceful Thrive Room Balloons
  • Have a positive place in society
  • Form trusting, rewarding relationships
  • Be creative
  • Be compassionate and empathetic
  • Be thoughtful and self-aware
  • Be productive
  • Be able to overcome difficulties and setbacks
