The John Bentley School

An Outstanding Centre For Learning

Thrive Hub

 

As part of Wiltshire's plan to support children and young people's emotional wellbeing and mental health, we have been designated as a Thrive Hub school, one of six selected schools in Wiltshire.

As a Thrive Hub school we receive additional support to help build children and young people’s resilience, support parents/carers and promote mentally healthy schools. We also share our training and good practice with other local schools.

Support available as a result of being a Thrive Hub school includes:

  • support from CAMHS, including  helping teachers to sport early signs of mental health concerns
  • Evidence based parenting programmes, from the Ministry of Parenting
  • Online confidential counselling service for students (Kooth.com) available seven days a week.
  • A peer mentoring programme, working with Kidscape
  • Engagement with Wiltshire Healthy schools programme
  • Youth Mental Health First Aid training 
  • Parenting courses

The aim of the Thrive Hub is to strengthen early intervention and prevention in schools where we hope to see problems being tackled as soon as they arise, reducing demand for more costly specialist interventions when problems may have become more serious.
