With so much focus on children’s wellbeing and mental health, now is the time to start focusing on different ways to bring this into the classroom and the front of their minds. Children are spending so much time on electronic ‘babysitters’ at home, so surely at school their minds should be challenged to push boundaries (in the right way)!

Yoga and Mindfulness sessions are becoming increasingly common in the run of the school day as more schools introduce this, either as part of their PE/PSHE/Drama curriculum or as an optional lunchtime or afterschool club, using them as a nurturing and fun way for children to develop body awareness and learn tools to keep them calm, present, happy and to aid manage anger and aggression through a variety of mediums including stories, breathing exercises and much more.

We at Primary PPA Cover have created a new Scheme of Work to bring all of this together as one. To find out more please get in touch!

With so much talk in the press over the past weeks, it only seems apt to publish something around Mental Health. National Mental Health Week was this week, and we are now seeing more and more people being open and honest about their mental health. Many schools are now offering sessions to not only pupils to channel their thoughts and feelings but staff too. We at Primary PPA Cover pride ourselves on being at the fore-front of research and development and our Yoga and Mindfulness sessions prove this. They not only work on core strength but inner strength and how to deal with different situations. This is being bought into our Head Office too with staff getting involved and utilising our Mental Health Coach, Rachel. Please get in touch if this is something you would like to know more about and how we can bring it into your school.
