Social, Emotional & Mental Health

Believe, Achieve, Together We Succeed
We are a Thrive Ambassador School

Hagley school is a Thrive School of Excellence, this award is the highest level of achievement in the Thrive Ambassador Schools programme.  It is awarded to schools and settings that have achieved Ambassador School status in all five areas listed below and is a benchmark of all-round excellence for schools that have embedded whole school Thrive Approach to support social and emotional learning, mental health and wellbeing.

The five areas

Leadership: Senior leaders support and promote emotional health and wellbeing, and this is embedded throughout policy and practice

Right Time: Adults working alongside children to embed right time social and emotional development, track and monitor and build in opportunities to develop mental health and wellbeing

Reparative: Early Identification of needs, for children that require support for social and emotional development, which is tracked and monitored by trained Thrive Practitioner utilising Thrive online to produce targeted action plans.

Relationship: Relationships underpin policy and practice that reflects the relational stance of Thrive, developing staff skills that are routed in established research in attachment theory, neuroscience and child development

Environment: Creating a culture, ethos and environment that promotes safety and connection

Monitoring and Meeting the Social and Emotional Needs of Students

“Every child needs to feel valued, involved and appreciated”

At Hagley Primary School we use a program called ‘Thrive’.  Thrive helps staff prepare young people for life’s emotional ups and downs in partnership with parents, carers, families and other agencies.  Thrive work goes on in all lessons and throughout the school day.  Our children learn resilience in the challenges they face and with support, they are continually gaining many social and emotional skills that will undoubtedly compliment the academic progress they make.

The approach gives guidance on how to be, and what to do, with children’s differing behaviour.  As a result, children become more self-assured and ready to engage with life and learning.

Based on neuroscience and attachment research, Thrive provides a targeted intervention.  All practice is underpinned by Thrive-Online, an assessment tool and extensive action planning resource that charts progress and measures outcomes.

The Free Thrive Parent toolkit loaded with Thrive resources and activities that can be used at home can be found at the following link

If you would like further information on Thrive please contact the SENCo, Mrs Claire Davis or the Lead Teaching Assistant for Social, Emotional and Mental Health, Mrs Kerry Baggott.  They can be contacted on 01562 883280 or [email protected]

Tiny Happy People

The BBC have launched a great new website called “Tiny Happy People”. It has lots of nice advice and videos for parents on how to support communication skills in young children.  Click the icon below to access the website.


We have a Pet Therapy dog who visits our children on a Wednesday afternoon to listen to them read. 

Supporting Text

This year we started the year by focussing on two texts: The suitcase by Chris Naylor Ballesteros and Felix After the Rain by Dunja Jogan.

We used these brilliant books to focus on emotions and the importance of talking to people and understanding their views. As part of this work, all of the children produced a piece of artwork inspired by the text.

In the video below, you can take a tour of our art gallery, as well as finding out about what we learnt from some of the children.
