Take Five at School is a trauma-smart resilience-building programme based on breathing, grounding and awareness, which is used in classrooms and on the playground. Pupils throughout school from FSU-Y6 take part in short breathing practices of 1 ½ minutes approximately (led either by an adult or by specially trained Take Five Breathing Ambassadors) to calm, relax and focus them ready for learning.
Priory children have embraced Take 5 breathing as a part of school life. At the start of the day, after break and lunch and anytime when needed, the breathing ambassadors lead the rest of the class to help mindfulness and concentration.
We have been featured in the media quite often. You can watch some of the reports below.
