As a school, we are committed to ensuring that our students feel they are in a safe school environment. Our students receive daily and weekly structured Mindfulness lessons. Mindfulness helps to develop a greater awareness of relationships and how to manage them (including difficult ones at home), as well as offering a richer understanding of things like self-esteem and optimism. Mindfulness trains students to understand and direct their attention with greater awareness and skill. this may improve the capacity to concentrate and be less distracted, as well as their working memory and ability to plan.
