Our mission statement is “to build emotional resilience in children and adults in school settings and in the wider school community by using mindfulness”.
‘Mindful Teaching’ co-ordinates and manages mindfulness programmes and courses in schools for pupils and staff. Mindful Teaching offers a variety of approaches to mindfulness. We primarily bring mindfulness to pupils and staff in schools with the evidence based courses developed by the ‘Mindfulness in Schools Project’ (MISP) (www.mindfulnessinschools.org).Note that Mindful Teaching staff have been trained by MiSP to teach these courses but are not employees of MiSP.
For staff we can provide evidence based courses to bring the benefits of mindfulness to their lives and their teaching interactions.
For children, the MiSP courses have the look and feel of a typical curriculum topic. All
courses are independently evaluated, evidence based and written by teachers. They have been
comprehensively tested for suitability for children. The mindfulness courses are designed
to fit the culture within your school, work harmoniously with your school’s existing
messages and help you to reach your educational and OFSTED targets.
Mindfulness is a powerful tool and can improve self-regulation, resilience, focus and the ability to pay attention.
