Pentland is part of the ‘Thrive’ Community Hub
Pentland is very proud of the fantastic relationships we have with our families and we will always do our best to help and support them in any way we can.
With this in mind, we have worked hard with the schools in the local Dewsbury area to ensure that whilst services may be being cut back in other areas, we do all we can to make sure the needs of our children and families are met in the best way possible.
To help make this happen, we have formed a local schools Community Hub network, which is called the ‘The Thrive’ Hub.
There are 20 Dewsbury schools in total within the hub. However, they are split into 3 smaller groups of schools and Pentland is part of Thrive South.
We will meet together every 2 weeks and take collective responsibility for organising adult education classes and events, support and activities for young families, out of school activities for children and canvas for the health and social care that families need at different points in their children’s lives. The community hub aims to develop a community directory that will help signpost families themselves to the support available within their local community.
There is now a new website for Thrive. This will be an important way in which information can be shared. Take a look at: firstname.lastname@example.org or the Twitter account: @Thrive Hub
This is still new and there are more things developing all the time. Please keep returning to the website for further news.
We want to make Thrive work for everyone. If you have any ideas or suggestions that you feel we could look at providing, please speak to Mrs Barker or Mrs Rushby in school who will feed them back to the hub partnership.
‘The Yorkshire Post’ newspaper celebrated this work in their article on the 5th June, saying that the Dewsbury schools were moving quickly to develop this important work. We are very proud to be a part of this exciting partnership.
