The Mindfully happy School Programme

We are living in one of the most complex and demanding times that society has ever known.

 

  • Growing emphasis on grades, test results, and performance

  • Llittle time for pupils to develop the necessary skills to become resilient, ethical, motivated learners.

  • For teachers the increasing pressures are leading to toxic stress and burnout.

According to youngminds.org.uk

.

850,000 children aged 5-16 have mental health problems.

  • Three children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health disorder.

  • Childhood and teenage years are when mental health is developed and patterns are set for the future. So a child with good mental health is much more likely to have good mental health as an adult, and to be able to take on adult responsibilities and fulfil their potential.
