Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.' (Jon Kabat-Zin) Across all year groups, pupils have been given the opportunity to study and practice mindfulness in their character sessions and they will deepen this understanding further in the following term. In a time when our attention is constantly being drawn to the increasing concerns over mental health issues in society, it is important for us to take the time to consider our mental well-being and to look after our pupils' young minds. Many people report benefits of continued mindfulness practices to include better sleep, concentration and relaxation capabilities. Many pupils report that mindfulness helps to reduce their anxiety levels- especially around exam time. We have trained some of our staff with the 'Mindfulness in Schools Project' (link below) and look forward to taking mindfulness even further within the school.
