Mindfulness training can help staff and learners in your school cultivate calm, focus and creative thinking. Evidence shows that mindfulness training supports staff to manage stress effectively and builds emotional intelligence in students and children, setting them up to engage more fully in the learning process.
Research shows that mindfulness training can result in:
increased job performance
less days off work
better mental health
attunement to students’ need
FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
improved mental & emotional health
greater self-awareness and empathy
We are happy to work with staff to introduce simple mindfulness techniques that can be used with children, providing that staff members have themselves done some introductory mindfulness training.

"Annie's visit to our school left our staff with a very powerful message about the importance of mindfulness.
Her mindfulness training sessions allowed all staff, with a wide range levels of previous experience, to access the course. There were an appropriate amount of links to theory and some excellent examples of sessions that were designed for students of all ages. We will continue our focus on mindfulness training for staff and students ..."

We offer INSET, courses, and single sessions for staff, which can provide the basis you need to support mindfulness in your students.
Our staff training sessions and courses are intended to support the wellbeing of teachers and support staff and to help bring about an atmosphere of mindfulness within the school. They are tailor-made to suit your school and staff group.
We consider it essential that any staff wishing to use mindfulness approaches with pupils should first undertake some practical training themselves.
We are trained to teach courses devised by the Mindfulness in Schools Project for Key Stages 2-5. We have also developed our own course for Key Stage 1.
Courses can be provided in a range of formats to suit the needs of individual schools.
Children will learn some of the science of mindfulness and how to become aware of emotions, body sensations and thought processes. They will be supported to find practical ways to respond positively and with greater resilience within all their activities and relationships. There is encouragement for home practice and to integrate the learning into other aspects of school life.
Special Educational Needs and Disability: sessions and courses
We have substantial experience of working with children and young people with a wide range of special needs, including those on the autistic spectrum. As well as being consciously inclusive of children with special needs within mainstream classes, we have also provided a range of individually tailored sessions and successfully adapted courses for use with generic SEN classes.
Please see the downloadable PDF at the top of this page for more details about our sessions and courses.
