“Fantastic day, really clear perspective now on how to introduce it to our school”  London, September 2016

Free places and discounts are available!

Are you eligible:

  1. Are you willing to take part in the MiSP Case Studies Project?
  2.  Are you employed at a school with above average numbers of pupils receiving Free School Meals?

1. Be part of the MiSP case studies project

Mindfulness in Schools Project is looking to learn more from schools about how they introduce mindfulness in their schools, from the start of their journey through to embedding it more fully. We are therefore keen to work with schools to develop a clear picture of how this works best and how MiSP may support them in this process.

Key to this process is a senior leadership team who are both informed about and supportive of any mindfulness initiative in their school.

To this end, and as part of our charitable aims to support schools, we would like to offer a 50% discount on the forthcoming Mindfulness for School Senior Leaders day in London on June 5th to members of senior leadership teams (SLT) in schools where mindfulness is yet to be, or just beginning to be introduced. The usual cost of this course is £225 + VAT.

Please note:

  • This offer is available for this course only, and not for future Mindfulness for Senior Leadership days or any other MiSP events.
  • No more than 2 members of a senior leadership team per school may apply for this offer.
  • In addition to this discount you may also be eligible for a further discount of up to 50% if your school has above average numbers of pupils receiving Free School Meals, find out more about our supported places below.

In Exchange:

Previous experience has taught us that introducing mindfulness initiatives into schools in any kind of meaningful or sustainable way can be a lengthy and slow process. In exchange, we would therefore simply ask that any school attending this course keeps us informed of their journey over the next few years.

This will involve periodic requests for updates and written or verbal summaries of how things are shaping up in terms of developing  mindfulness initiative within the school – what has worked well, any challenges faced, and how these were managed.

The results from these updates will inform the advice and support MiSP offers other schools and teachers in the coming years.

If this offer is of interest, please contact communications@mindfulnessinschools.org to receive a case studies code to use on the booking form.

2. Are you employed at a school who has above average numbers of pupils receiving Free School Meals?

As a charity we are delighted to be able to offer a discount of up to 50% to schools who have above average numbers of pupils receiving Free School Meals. For more information about MiSP supported places click here. Please complete the request form for a Supported place BEFORE applying for a place on a course as you will need to provide a code from the charity team in order to show you have been allocated a Supported place otherwise you will be invoiced for the full amount.
