The Mindful Me journey starts in year 7 with the whole year group receiving our group sessions (1 hour each). Interventions are typically run on a wellbeing or PSHE ‘drop down’ day at a time to suit your school’s timetable, with 3-4 practitioners seeing all year 7s during a morning session (based on a year group size of 150-200 pupils).
Prior to this, year 7s take part in a baseline survey to assess their emotional health and wellbeing. This short 15-20 question survey is often conducted during form time or IT lessons and includes recognised personal wellbeing questions from the Office of National Statistics.
A repeat survey is also conducted around 3 months following interventions to measure their impact and a full evaluation is provided following each survey.
“The Mindful Me programme is fantastic and the benefits to students and staff are invaluable”
“Great ideas to bring back to the classroom and for PSHE.”
A sustainable whole school approach can be implemented further through our staff training and parent sessions. For those pupils requiring more targeted support, schools opt for our Resilience building one to one sessions.
Schools have the option to work with one of our Embedding Coaches to revisit and introduce techniques across all year groups to create a sustainable whole school approach to emotional health and wellbeing – as recommended by NICE, the DfE and PHE.
From Sept 2017, schools also have the option to buy a license for our e-learning platform which will allow access to Mindful Me resources and materials for the period of a whole academic year. This allows techniques to be revisited by school staff at key points during a child’s time at school, such as when selecting GCSE options or during exam time.
