Thriving Lives Toolkit

Helping schools support Service children

Underpinned by rigorous research and thoroughly tested in school, the Thriving Lives Toolkit provides schools with a framework of 7 principles through which to reflect on their practice and a 3 tier set of CPD resources. The resources in this toolkit have been developed in collaboration with a range of partners across the UK, and consist of:

  • an introductory animation;
  • a detailed resource introducing the evidence base, what schools can do to support their Service children and who can help and;
  • school case studies.

Please click on the individual principles below to find our training modules and case studies.

The SCiP Alliance has commissioned the International Centre for Guidance Studies to evaluate what impact using the Thriving Lives toolkit has had on schools, their staff and their Service children. We really need your help to do this – we would like to know how much progress you have been able to make, how you have gone about doing this and what effect this has had. Finding out this information helps us develop the toolkit further, share good practice with other schools and help support Service children to an even greater extent:
