We often ask children to pay attention but do we ever teach them how to actually do this? Over the past two years, a number of our schools have been involved in teaching mindfulness to children; this involves engaging teachers in mindfulness practice as well as teaching children a range of strategies help them direct their attention to experiences 'in the moment'. In preparation for training to teach mindfulness, through the Paws b curriculum and 'The Present' Inspire offers foundations training.

All of our schools have pupils who have attachment difficulties.  The evidence categorically indicates that these children and young people significantly underachieve unless they receive support and intervention.  Children can experience attachment difficulties as a consequence of trauma which may be caused by: parental absence or unavailability, parental depression, domestic abuse, children affected by migration, alcoholism in the family or removal from the birth home as is the case for looked after children.  Some children with autism can also experience attachment difficulties.

‘P4C’, Philosophy for Children is an exceptionally powerful tool for developing thinking. It is a collaborative, democratic activity that is of proven value in building self and mutual respect in participants as well as improving the level of their thinking. The method is suitable for all KS and functions well across the curriculum. Recent Education Endowment Fund (EEF) findings confirm that attainment and behaviour are positively influenced by P4C and a greater improvement in less socially advantaged children than in others was measured. Inspire is pleased to offer a certificated Level 1 Foundation Course to staff in its member schools This is a two-day, non-residential course, it focuses on the theory and practice of P4C, and aims to provide delegates with sufficient understanding to facilitate philosophical enquiries with their own learners.
