The Thrive Approach draws on the insights from neuroscience, attachment theory and child development to provide a powerful way of working with all children and young people.  The  support  promotes optimal social and emotional development. Ysgol Penmaes is a Thrive school and several staff across the whole school are Thrive practitioners.


Being a Thrive school means that Thrive strategies and pedagogy is interwoven through the ethos of the whole school. Whole class profiles are carried out which then generate a list of activities and strategies to support the emotional development of all pupils.  Pupils can enjoy some time relaxing, meditating and/or engaging in Thrive activities with a trained licenced Thrive Childhood Practitioner.


As well as whole school Thrive, Thrive is used as a bespoke wellbeing intervention for individuals or small groups - these sessions cater for pupils who have attachment difficulties or who have experienced developmental trauma in their lives.
