Mindfulness in schools
Allow your school to leap ahead
For the education sector I offer workshops for students, staff and parents. They include growth mindset, self-awareness, well-being, emotional resilience, confidence, effective goal setting, mindfulness and meditation. All of which are essential for supporting a young persons growth and development. I use tools to build an ethos around supporting mental resilience within a learning environment and increasing skills for life. I mainly work with students in secondary school but I do offer 30 minute sessions for primary children too. I offer teacher training on mindfulness work practice and parent events giving them the information and opportunity to support learning at home.
I have been working in schools for over 15 years, first as a role as a facilitator in Forum Theatre using drama in learning concepts and more recently in the last 3 years as a trainer and coach through Leap Mindfulness. Since January 2016 I’ve have worked at around 120 schools across the UK and I am also on the Freelance Team with Learning Performance Training delivering workshops on Meta-Cognition and Memory Skills.
I use a variety of gentle and thought provoking activities within the workshops to explore the habits, beliefs and choices of the students. This ranges from written tasks to group activities, debates and games. These activities will promote self-reflection and personal growth in a subtle manner. My techniques do not conflict with any religious bodies and are suitable from students from all backgrounds.
Planning Your Workshop
We begin with either a school visit or a telephone consultation to discuss your aims and objectives. This will be based on the core principles of the school plus your short and long term plans. I will then draw up an outline of your workshops and will email this to you so we can make adjustments if necessary. Each school has it’s own bespoke content. You can book a one of session or a series or workshops. All with the aim of giving your students skills for life. At the end of the sessions I give each participant a feedback form which will be used to create an impact report and given directly to the school to review.

“We’re thrilled with the impact the relaxation sessions had on our children at Brackenbury. We booked Sally to provide a mindfulness session for every year group, aged 4-11. All of the children were fully engaged, and Sally tailored the sessions to the age of the children. The head teacher commented that lunch time on that day was the calmer than she had ever seen”
