Event Details

Sunningdale School staff use an approach to emotional regulation that is based on attachment theory, child development and basic neurology. The approach is collectively known as ‘Thrive’. We are re-running our highly successful six week parent course to introduce parents to the fundamentals of Thrive and how it works in practice.

Come on this course to find out about

  • how our brains develop
  • the relationship between feeling, thinking and behaving
  • why play and creativity are so important to you and your child
  • how to support your child at times of change and difficulty
  • everyday trigger times and how to keep calm
  • how to be a behaviour detective
  • how Thrive is used in your child’s school

Spaces will be limited to 10 people per course. The course will be facilitated by Deputy Head Teacher, James Waller and Family Partnership Advisor, Jan Patterson, staff with a number of years experience working with children with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties and co-authors of Teaching Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Participating parents said:

“I would definitely recommend this course for parents and practitioners. Excellent course made so much sense not only for my child, also for myself” (parent)

“It was a very informative and interesting course-have learned a lot! Thank You.” (parent)

“A very enjoyable and informative training course. I have learned lots about coping strategies” (parent)

The course will run from 9.00am- 11.30am on the following dates:

12th, 19th May, 2nd, 16th, 23rd and 30th June

This training is heavily subsidised by the school to make it accessible to parents. It is extremely popular and places are limited to 10 people so we ask parents to pay a £10 fee to reserve their place.

Please book early to avoid disappointment.
