Pield Heath House is delighted to have become an accredited Thrive School. Two members of staff have successfully completed their training to become Licensed Thrive Practitioners. Pield Heath House is now one of three schools in London Borough of Hillingdon using the Thrive approach, which has now been adopted by more than 3000 schools across the UK.
Thrive is a specific and systematic way of working with all children that helps to develop their social and emotional well-being, enabling them to engage with life and learning. It helps to further understand why children behave in the ways they do and supports them in becoming more self-assured, capable and adaptable and therefore supports emotional regulation and behaviour.
All Pield Heath School staff will be trained on the principles of Thrive and it will be used in conjunction with therapy staff and parents to support the emotional development of all our students and to promote positive behaviours for learning and life. A separate Thrive room is being established for the use of those students who will most benefit.
The Thrive approach is becoming more widely used as it has already proved so successful at getting children who have difficulty learning back on track. Thrive principles will also help us to respond to the individual child’s needs and interests, modify and adapt the environment, and provide the tools to enhance learning and behaviour.
Natasha Johnson, Associate Headteacher commented: ‘We are thrilled to embrace Thrive in our school and confident it will be of very real benefit to our students improving their wellbeing, confidence, social skills, behaviour and interest in learning.’
