Mind Up!

MIND UP at Lingham Primary School

MindUP infuses developmental neuroscience, mindful awareness practice, social emotional learning (SEL), and positive psychology to foster children’s joy and resiliency.

This is a years programme of 15 lessons, however we will be completing it over two years along side the new Dimensions curriculum.


The Brain Break

Practiced three times per day, this focused breathing practice gives children a tool to help them to regulate their stress and emotions through regulating their physiology, and activating the attentional regions of the brain.
