Mindfulness in the classroom - training plus resource pack

One in six school-aged children in the UK has a mental health problem. Children are becoming increasingly more stressed. They’re not alone - according to research, most teachers experience job stress at least two to four times a day, with more than 75% of teachers’ health problems attributed to stress.

Introducing mindfulness into the classroom has been found to have real benefits including increased focus, attention, self-control, classroom participation and compassion; improved academic performance, ability to resolve conflict and overall well-being; and decreased levels of stress, depression, anxiety and disruptive behaviour.


This training session and resource pack aims to help teachers integrate mindfulness into a school’s culture. You can run through the training session online, or just jump in and use the resource pack that comes in printed and electronic format.  It has different exercises suitable for primary & secondary pupils.
