Studies already conducted in childhood mindfulness have revealed numerous positive benefits.  The most promising benefits include:

  • Stress relief
  • Restlessness relief
  • Mental focus
  • Discover life balance
  • Deepen social skills
  • Develop math skills
  • Better sleep
  • More self-esteem
  • Emotion control
  • Improved decision-making skills

GLPA believes that the development of Mindfulness is an important life long skill that can be developed at school and at home.

During the Spring Term, Action Research is being undertaken in five classes across the academy that has included teacher and parent training. Impact has already been seen just in the last few weeks which has strengthen our belief in developing the life long skill of mindfulness.

We have a page dedicated to supporting parents in developing mindfulness at home here: Parental Support-Mindfulness

If you have any questions or would like any support, please contact the academy office and we will be more than happy to help.
