The Thrive Approach draws on insights from various fields to provide a powerful way of working with children and young people that supports optimal social and emotional development. In addition, the Thrive Approach can equips those trained to work in a targeted way with children and young people who may have struggled with difficult life events to help them re-engage with life and learning.

At MPA, Mrs Dodwell, works with pupils on a one-to-one or small group basis in our dedicated Thrive Room in short 30 minute sessions, once or twice a week.

These sessions are based around activities suggested by the Thrive Approach and draw upon Neuroscientific research based on Child Development and Attachment Theory.

We have recently decorated our Thrive Room and are delighted with the outcome. It is now a calm, tranquil space with lots of wonderful resources which the children are really enjoying.
