Welcome to Family Support
At Holy Redeemer we recognise that all families may need additional support at times. Providing this support is a priority for the school, as we know the important role that this also supports children in school and has a positive impact on their achievement and progress, as well as their emotional development.
Family Support is offered in a range of ways, from working with parents to complete Thrive assessments and set home and school objectives, working with groups of parents deliver Family Thrive, working with groups of children to support emotional development and friendships, one to one parent sessions to discuss individual needs, one-t-one well-being support for pupils, support with completing forms and applying for benefits/jobs, dispensing Foodbank vouchers and signposting to external support.
Thrive’s vision is of a world in which children’s social and emotional needs are better understood and met.
Created to support this vision, the Thrive Approach is a dynamic, developmental and trauma-sensitive approach to meeting the emotional and social needs of children.
Family Thrive for Parents and Carers
Thrive can give you an insight in to why children behave like they do. The Thrive Approach can provide you with pointers to help create positive experiences that support their wellbeing and build their emotional resilience. We are not offering a parenting programme or yet more activities to fill the time. We’re offering you a guiding hand and reassurance.
