Event description

Description

The DfE identifies a whole-school approach to promoting good mental health as a protective factor for child and adolescent mental health. “in order to help their pupils succeed; schools have a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy”

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) advises that primary and secondary schools should be supported to adopt a comprehensive, ‘whole school’ approach to promoting the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people. Such an approach moves beyond learning and teaching to pervade all aspects of the life of a school, and has been found to be effective in bringing about and sustaining health benefits.

MindUP™ is a whole school evidenced programme that spans ages 4 to 13 years and has over 14 years of efficacy in the classroom. MindUP™ is currently being taught in schools across the UK, Republic of Ireland, United States, Canada, Finland, Serbia, Australia and Jordan.

With a firm grounding in Neuroscience, MindUP™ uses mindful awareness and positive psychology as a catalyst for social-emotional learning. Our program not only teaches children the science behind their brains, it also provides techniques for self-calming, inter-personal connections and empathy. Through MindUP™ our students develop the tools to manage anxiety and stress, to live in the present, and to experience the world fully. These skills lay the foundation for lifelong awareness of the self, of others, and of our world.

MindUP™ provides children with the tools to help them understand and improve their own emotions, moods and behaviors; reduce stress and anxiety; sharpen concentration; build confidence; increase empathy; and improve academic performance in school. MindUP™ is easily embedded into daily routines at school and promotes an optimistic class where children can succeed and thrive.

In this free information session, you will be introduced to the research evidence conducted on MindUP™, the framework of lessons grounded in neuroscience, "The Brain Break" the core breathing practice taken three times a day and the mindful awareness activities that build focus for effective learning.

You will come away with a clear understanding of our unique three term model of training and support which includes a parent/carer workshop and how our school wide approach supports life long wellbeing.
