From children for children
Select some children to become Mindfulness Ambassadors for your school. Suzy runs a half day workshop for the children involved and prepares them for their new role. This is followed up with remote surgery sessions to discuss feedback and provide new material.
Feel the benefits of a consistent practice rippling through the school. This peer lead scheme nurtures a culture of empowerment within your students and a 360 approach to good mental health.
Mindfulness training LSA
Suzy has designed a training session specifically for LSA’s as CPD. LSA’s are often placed to support children who require additional teaching, learning, social and emotional interventions.
Mindfulness based strategies can be simple, timely and effective at reducing anxiety levels and refocusing attention. The activities are also accessible that they can be used by the LSA’s in whole class teaching sessions too.
“I am loving being a Mindfulness Ambassador. The children are coming up to me in the playground and asking for help. I also know which children need moving to the front so that they listen more carefully when I am doing the DBP!”

I had no experience of Mindfulness and that was really eye opening. I will definitely be using it daily, thank you.“
