A PRIMARY school has been named as a Thrive School of Excellence and praised by Ofsted for the role it plays in supporting the wellbeing of its pupils.

Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid presented Hagley Primary School with the award last Friday (May 19).

The Thrive School of Excellence award recognises extraordinary schools that are making a positive impact on their pupils, and on the wider community.

The award is the highest level of achievement in Thrive’s Ambassador Schools scheme, which was launched in 2020 as a way of recognising excellence in member schools.

There are five areas in which schools can evidence how they use Thrive to support children’s social and emotional development, including – environment, leadership, right-time, reparative and relationship.

Headteacher Vanessa Payne said: “The school is absolutely delighted to receive the Thrive School of Excellence award and to have the school’s focus and success on wellbeing recognised and celebrated in our very recent Ofsted inspection.

“Children and adult mental health and wellbeing is a pivotal focus of our work in school.

“We are proud of our achievements and will be ensuring that our practice continues to grow, evolve and become further embedded both within and beyond the curriculum.”

Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid said: “Congratulations to everyone involved at Hagley Primary School on receiving this excellent award.

“It is fantastic to see their work on supporting pupils with mental wellbeing being recognised in this way and I was very pleased to meet the team on my recent visit.”

Council said: “It’s great for one of our schools to be recognised as a school of excellence in mental wellbeing by both Ofsted and the Thrive Approach, and I’d like to offer my congratulations to the staff and students at Hagley Primary School on their award.

“Mental wellbeing is important for everyone, at all ages. I’m really pleased to see our schools are educating their pupils on the importance of starting and then keeping the conversation and support going about emotional wellbeing and resilience.”
