Relax Kids in Schools

I currently run courses in schools in Basingstoke and the surrounding areas. I am happy to work in small groups of up to 10 children or with whole year groups (splitting classes). lease contact me to discuss what you feel would benefit your school.

I am currently taking bookings for courses starting after May half term.

From an experienced Relax Kids coach (and former teacher):

  • “Relax Kids is actually going to help schools raise attainment and improve retention of learning as children are readying their pre-frontal cortexes and hippocampus’.
  • The programme is there specifically to help schools get children ‘brain-ready’ to learn. And as a result of investing a little time with the children their ability to become engaged with learning will develop more effectively.
  • Its also likely to improve attendance (a key factor in attainment) as children are developing resilience and compassion, which create a more effective learning environment.”

And this is backed up by a recent report that the Assistant Senco at Burnham Copse produced earlier in the year as part of her Senco training.  Here is a key message from that report:

“When considering the effectiveness of an intervention it is important to ask where can the impact of that intervention be seen? Teacher, child and parent testimonials have already shown that the children are not only enjoying the sessions, but are using the techniques where required, giving an observable change to behaviour and anxiety levels.”

There has also been some evidence shown through SIMS (Schools Information Management System) that Relax Kids has had a positive impact on the children that have attended the sessions. This has included an increase in attendance for some children whom anxiety was the root cause of attendance issues, as well as an increase in attainment seen in some of the phase model strands.
 
Burnham Copse Primary School also subsidised Relax Adults sessions to parents of children who are currently, or have attended Relax Kids sessions as a holistic approach to the mental well being of the children and families.”

I also run courses in nurseries/preschools in Basingstoke and the surrounding areas, so please do get in touch if you would like more information.

I work with all year groups and adapt my lesson plans accordingly.  For secondary schools I run my adult relaxation course.
