Sunningdale School staff use an approach to mental health and wellbeing that is based on attachment research, child development and basic neuroscience research. The approach is known as ‘Thrive’. We are re-running our highly successful Family Thrive course to introduce parents/carers and other family members 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 the Thrive approach is used in school.
Spaces will be limited 10 people per course. The course will be facilitated by Sunningdale school’s Head Teacher, James Waller and Family Partnership Adviser, Jan Patterson, who have extensive experience of working with children with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties.
The understanding and approach is relevant to children of any developmental level and James and Jan will adapt to support individual children.
