Wellbeing and the benefits of SCITT buy-in from current and prospective partnership schools
How often are children and adults told that resilience is a good thing but they are rarely taught how to actually be more resilient! Mindfulness training helps to explore and understand the mind and develop skills to proactively manage responses and behaviours, as well as improving focus and the ability to pay attention.
Mindful Teaching, part of the not-for profit Oakdale Centre CIC, have been working in a variety of educational settings across Yorkshire to bring evidence based mindfulness training to children and young people and/or staff.
It’s outdoor physical activity, as part of Health and Wellbeing, in an enjoyable social setting. The class goes outside into the playground with their teacher and run and jog at their own pace for 15 minutes each day.
At Safe Hands Training Services, we believe it is vitally important to remove stigma from talking about emotional wellbeing and mental health. Mental Health is still seen my many people as embarrassing or a sign of weakness.
We want talking about mental health to be as everyday as talking about physical health, by doing this we can encourage our young people to talk to us and change the alarming but sadly true statistic that Suicide is the most common cause of death for boys and girls aged 5 and 19 in England and Wales.
Increasing numbers of children are struggling with childhood trauma and ACES ( Adverse Childhood Experience’s) such as being in care or experiencing domestic violence, loss and abuse. These experiences are affecting children’s ability to flourish in school and are creating barriers to learning. Children are unable to access the curriculum because they are too busy trying to survive their circumstances. Schools are seeing an increase in behavioural difficulties, peer relationship issues and hyperactivity.
iSpace is the Wellbeing Curriculum for schools, developed by its founder and creator, Paula Talman. It is designed to give children the tools to develop their whole selves, providing a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing for children aged 4-11 and 11+.
