Five years of preparation towards the all-important exams create a plethora of challenges along the way, alongside which schools are expected to prepare pupils for the real world.
Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development now forms an integral portion of the OFSTED handbook which declares that an outstanding school would have a “thoughtful and wide-ranging promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”
Thus, the question arises: Can one workshop surrounding ‘Mindfulness’ truly have an impact on pupils’ GCSE results?
Since relaxation, stillness and focus can have a direct impact on exam performance it does seem that it may be able to make a difference.
Many schools have already turned to Mindfulness practice, especially in relation to revision techniques, as well as every day school life.
Our Mindfulness workshop is coupled with practical revision and homework techniques that are born out of the same focus and stillness.
Preachy clichés are kept at bay and, before any practical exploration, pupils gain a sense of what mindfulness practice actually is and how some people choose to apply it to their lives.
Pupils leave with their own unique ‘time management profile’ and are able to implement a ‘positive thinking plan’ to go alongside their academic revision plan. Perhaps it really could have an influence on the results in that brown envelope in August?
