SCiP Alliance Thriving Lives Toolkit: Implementation and Impact Evaluation
|Hanson, J., Blake, H. and Neary, S.
Primary and secondary schools responded positively to the Thriving Lives Toolkit, finding it to be a valuable resource which promoted auditing, action planning and development. All schools made progress on the principles, even when they had only been using it for a short time frame. Senior leadership support was important for facilitating this.
The progress made by schools started with appointing a named contact and typically involved making use of local and national support groups and evidence based resources to increase staff awareness and implement a range of interventions. Most often these were focused on making transition more effective but schools also spent time on improving wellbeing and attainment.
Schools perceived several outcomes as a consequence of this activity. School staff were more confident in supporting Service children and this had become a key activity in schools. Service children were perceived to have improved wellbeing and to be more engaged in school. Schools had improved relationships with Service families.
