“MindUP reinforces the enjoyment and impact of the experience of learning.”
I would have no hesitation in recommending MindUP to other headteachers, the training and resources provided by the Hawn Foundation is excellent.
In the Nursery our youngest children engage with mindful breathing with Ofsted commenting that: children are 'mindful' of their own thoughts and actions. This has helped to greatly improve children's behaviour and concentration.
