At Aldermoor Farm Primary School we believe that your child’s progress academically, as well as socially and emotionally are our shared priority.
At Aldermoor Farm we take a whole school approach. In every classroom there is a Thrive box with resources. These can be used on a 1:1 basis or as a class. The classes carry out activities together and learn different strategies to calm. This is a good way of children recognising their own bodies.
Additionally to this each classroom has a Thrive area where children can go and be calm.
The Thrive Approach draws on insights in the fields of neuroscience, attachment theory and child development. Working in partnership with both parents and class teachers, we provide a targeted, differentiated programme to work with children and help them to re-engage with learning. Action plans are generated using Thrive online, and these are then reviewed regularly to assess progress and ensure that the strategies being used are addressing the child’s ongoing social and emotional needs. We believe that by adopting this approach, we can help our children learn self regulation and build self esteem which reinvigorates their ability to engage with learning.
We believe that ALL children should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Adopting the Thrive approach at Aldermoor Farm, we believe we can address children’s social and emotional needs and help build their resilience and resourcefulness; both essential life skills that they can take with them as they grow.
“When parents are beset by demands on their time, a key message is: it’s not so much about what you do with your children that is important, but how you do it, so that you can make the most of each interaction.”
There is a FREE Thrive-Online Parent Toolkit you can access which offers a selection of strategies and activities designed to help children feel special and safe during these uncertain times. It is not a parenting programme, but a resource to support the wellbeing of everyone in the family.
