There are different ways to bring mindfulness into a school setting. As a fully qualified Mindfulness Teacher I can discuss your individual school requirements and tailor a programme to suit your needs as a school community.
How is mindfulness taught to students?
Mindfulness can be taught through PSHE days, workshops or at after-school clubs. It can also follow the .b curriculum, which is designed to introduce young people to the potential benefits of mindfulness in the safety of the school classroom, over a course of 10 lessons. Providing a toolkit of practices, most between 1 and 10 minutes, the course will introduce students to mindfulness in ways that they find helpful and enjoyable. It is intended to sit within the school’s framework of social and emotional learning, safeguarding and support.
How is mindfulness taught to staff?
The 8-week course is for school staff and parents who wish to develop their own mindfulness practice and enhance their own wellbeing. Delivered on site in schools, it is designed to be accessible and effective for busy school staff. The course is practical, with plenty of opportunity to experience mindfulness and to develop the skills to sustain practice beyond the course.
Those who complete the .b Foundations course and develop their own mindfulness practice would, after 6 months, qualify for further training to teach mindfulness to young people.
