Mindfulness in Primary Schools

My name is Gayle Creasey and I teach mindfulness in primary schools in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.

I am an experienced mindfulness for schools trainer and have completed training with Bangor University and the Mindfulness in Schools Project.


What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness in primary schools improves the emotional resilience, performance and happiness of pupils.

Mindfulness teaches children to be more aware of their thoughts and emotions .  It also helps them to recognise how these thoughts and emotions shape their behaviour.

Through simple mindfulness exercises, pupils learn to find a quiet place inside themselves.  This steady place inside becomes a support when they get distracted or when life feels challenging.

Mindfulness skills can help pupils when they feel angry, scared, sad or worried.   Ensuring that difficult emotions and thoughts do not take over their day or their behaviour.

Learning mindfulness also explores the importance of ‘growing happiness’ .  Pupils learn how to savour good moments so that they build resilience and a robust sense of well being.


What exactly is the Paws.b mindfulness course?

Each of the six lessons is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation using striking visuals, film clips and activities to enable pupils to understand how mindfulness can help them to train their minds to concentrate better, make good choices and do their best.
