What is the Thrive approach?

The Thrive Approach is a dynamic, developmental and trauma-sensitive approach to meeting the emotional and social needs of children and young people.


The benefits of Thrive?

The Thrive Approach has evolved over the last 25 years and built upon theories in attachment and child development, grounded in neuroscience and using play, creativity and the arts.  Thrive provides those who work with children and young people with the knowledge, skills and tools to optimise social and emotional development.  By focusing on the relationship with the child or young person, Thrive delivers improvements in children’s behaviour, leading to better engagement and attainment.


So how does The Luccombe Hub use the Thrive approach to help our young people?

The Luccombe Hub, with permission of our families uses arts, creativity and play activities to engage with our young people to encourage them to express themselves, thoughts and feelings.  We may use the Thrive assessment tool to really understand the emotional level of our learners and from this create Thrive Action plans, through the use of these action plans which form part of a child’s overall support plan, facilitators/teachers will follow suggested activities specifically chosen to help a young person develop the necessary skills to grow and develop which in turn helps them reach their personal goals.
