Thrive Behaviour Support
Meridian High School have been awarded the "We've embraced Thrive in our setting" status.
This has been awarded to us because of the way that the Thrive approach has been embedded across the school and the results it has achieved. Meridian High School have eight members of staff, which include SLT, who are Thrive practitioners.
Students come to school to learn, and those with a strong sense of wellbeing are more able to make the most of the opportunities available to them.
The Thrive approach is a way of assessing and supporting a child's individual emotional and social development. These assessments can then be used to provide personalised programmes for classes, groups and individuals.
Every student will be supported through the school-wide Thrive approach. An initial assessment carried out by Thrive Leaders will enable class teachers to identify particular strands to work on, such as how to support students who have different opinions without falling out, how to resolve conflict respectfully or how to recognise their own emotions and to be able to regulate them.
Meridian High School uses the Thrive approach at two levels, individual and group profiles which are completed using the Thrive online monitoring tool. Student action plans are shared with all staff and include strategies that staff can use to support students' social and emotional development. This support enables students to be able to self regulate and access their education.
All new staff at Meridian High School attend a Thrive induction to make them aware of the principals behind the Thrive approach. We also have a weekly Thrive drop in session to support staff with particular students who may require a higher level of support.
As a school we liaise closely with families and Thrive practitioners complete along side parents/carers Thrive profiles. A Thrive action plan is then shared with parents that can be used at home.
