We're now now closed for the foreseeable future to all pupils except those children who are identified as vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. For those parents needing to access the emergency child care, we ask you do so responsibly and only as a last resort.  Please contact Bournville school directly to book your place. We'd love for you to keep in touch. Please follow our Facebook page and let us know your achievements and experiences, however big or small so we can share with the community. Keep an eye on our website.

SUPPORTING MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING THROUGH MINDUP

 

At Bournville we are proud to be part of the growing network of MindUP schools who promote the mental health and emotional wellbeing of our whole school community.

LEADERSHIP

Within the school we have a Mental Health School Champion and two fully  trained mental health first aiders. They ensure that the delivery of mind up as part of our whole school mental health and well being agenda is taking place. They also provide a source of support for staff and children in ensuring that the mental well being of all the school community is kept high on the agenda.   

THE CURRICULUM

The unique evidence-based framework provides knowledge and understanding of neuroscience, mindful awareness, positive psychology and mindful practices to affect positive change within the classroom and beyond. The 15-lesson curriculum includes practices developed to help children improve their focus, manage their emotions and face challenges with resilience, kindness and compassion.

The MindUP lessons are complemented by the ‘Brain Break’. This core mindful breathing exercise which takes place three times a day, enables pupils and staff to calm their minds, focus and get ready to learn.

The interactive teaching and learning approaches, complemented by whole-school mindful practices, help create an exciting learning environment within which children can thrive academically, socially and emotionally.

OUR SHARED VISION

MindUP is central to our strategic vision, it supports us to create a whole-school culture of gratitude, optimism, happiness and respect within which we can all grow and flourish.
