We are passionate about ensuring that we support students to be mindful and aware. Mindfulness involves learning to direct our attention to our experiences as they unfold, moment by moment, with open-minded curiosity and acceptance. Rather than worrying about what has happened or what might happen. It trains us to respond skilfully to whatever is happening right now, be that good or bad.
Well conducted mindfulness interventions have been shown to be capable of addressing the problems of the young people who take part, and improve their wellbeing, reduce worries, anxiety, distress, reactivity and bad behaviour, improve sleep, self-esteem, and bring about greater calmness, relaxation, and self-regulation and awareness.
The Myriad Project
Robert Clack School has been selected to take part in an exciting opportunity and partnership with the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Oxford. The school will be involved in research that will investigate how schools prepare young people to improve resilience and manage their emotional health. The research will take 3 years and will involve our current year 7 and 8 cohort. The research will support wider understanding on the impact of mindfulness on young people.
