Mindfulness

The staff are just about to complete a six week course in Mindfulness led by Lynne Pollen.   She has made us pause and think about how we engage with the here and now. She has encouraged us to use our senses and fully experience our lives moment by moment.

Lynne has also gently prompted us to be compassionate, first to ourselves and then to others.  She has made us realise that even in a Primary school on the run up to Christmas we can quieten our minds.

While primarily for the well being of the staff these lessons have undoubtedly made us more emphatic and creative teachers.

Lynne has also been leading parent sessions which have been a success.
