The Thrive Approach

At Highfields we Thrive

The Thrive Approach is used at Highfields to focus upon children's emotional well being. It offers practical strategies and skills that are built around assessments which identify children’s emotional development. Our qualified and highly experienced  Thrive practitioners provide action plans for individual needs. The sessions may take the form of small groups and one to one opportunities. 


Children may experience challenging situations during their time at school. These may include:

  • friendship issues,
  • family issues,
  • finding it hard to settle in the classroom,
  • managing and regulating their strong feelings.


Thrive sessions may include the following activities:

  • story telling,
  • circle games,
  • arts and crafts,
  • sand play,
  • movement and relaxation,
  • role play and puppet work,
  • games.


With Thrive, our purpose is to support the Highfields School vision of encouraging children:

  • to think for themselves,
  • to show initiative,
  • to gain confidence,
  • to be helpful to others,
  • to show tolerance and awareness of others,
  • to be reflective,
  • to be able to regulate their emotions.


For more information about the Thrive approach contact our Thrive practitioners, via the school office, or see the Thrive website.
