Ms Prescott, Pastoral Lead
WELCOME TO OUR PASTORAL PAGE
Ravenfield Primary Academy believe that children should be given the opportunity to develop outstanding personal qualities. Our pastoral provision underpins this ethos through intervention programmes and support, in addition to curriculum learning. We believe passionately in promoting children's mental health and wellbeing.
Many of our sessions include mixed age and ability groupings, to give students an opportunity to work with a range of children outside their normal peer group, as well as individual support.
We strive to provide as many children as possible, with the opportunity to access these programmes throughout the school year, with a view to developing emotional regulation, manners, cultural awareness, thoughtfulness and responsibility.

THRIVE AT RAVENFIELD
Ms Prescott leads the schools work in Thrive, as a Licensed Thrive Practitioner. At Ravenfield Primary Academy, our children's social and emotional well-being is paramount. We aim to develop children emotionally so that they are able to recognise and distinguish their emotions and learn ways of responding to their feelings appropriately.
WHAT IS THRIVE?
Thrive promotes children's positive mental health by helping adults know how to be and what to do in response to their behaviour. Based on established neuroscience, attachment theory and child development, the Thrive Approach provides training and an online profiling and action-planning tool to equip adults with the knowledge, insights and resources needed to develop the relationships that help children and young people to flourish and learn.
