At Weston on Trent C of E Primary School, we want all members of the school community to flourish and for every member of our community to be enabled to 'Let Your Light Shine'. Taking care of their mental well-being is an essential part of this.
Stress and anxiety affect how we process information and how we interpret what is said to us. This can lead to both miscommunication and to difficulties concentrating. We are working as a school to introduce mindfulness practice as a key life skill. If children are able to still their minds and be calm this will give them an excellent coping mechanism for the inevitable challenges of life.
The pandemic has highlighted more than ever the need to care for the mental well-being of all members of the school community as well as their physical, academic and spiritual development.
We are delighted to be working with Michael Thorpe and the Being Me team on Mindfulness and allowing the school community to benefit from their expertise.
You can find out more about the team on social media. They would very much appreciate some feedback on the activities.
