Our Thrive Hub is a safe space in school where children can receive social and emotional support, have fun with their friends at playtime, come in for early morning breakfast club and much more. We are proud of our Thrive space and the opportunities it provides for children across school.

If parents have a concern or worry, then it important that this is shared immediately. We always listen to concerns and take action; however small the worry may seem. We work with a range of partner agencies to ensure our children and families have access to external partners including:

  • CAMHS Mental Health Support
  • KABs in-school mentoring
  • Knowsely mental health support team
  • Listening Ear
  • Education welfare
  • Hearing Impaired support
  • Speech and Language service
