Our Services:

  • Relax Kids – Relax Kids is a unique method of introducing children to relaxation. It can help their concentration skills, their listening skills, their creativity skills, their self-esteem and their mental and physical health. This is completed by using a special system that revolves around elements of social and emotional aspects of learning. Children complete activities including movement, games, breathing, yoga style stretching, self-massage, affirmation and visualisation.

Pupils who are exposed to relaxation have been found to be more positive, productive and focused. Sessions can be tailor made to fit you. They can last for 45 – 60 minutes and can be themed with topics.

  • Resilience Bootcamp – Each session includes a warm up and a 15 minute fitness session followed by a cool down and stretch. We then move on to group-based work exploring emotional wellbeing topics and ending with strategies and tools for managing emotions. Evidence shows that using exercise first, ‘breaks the ice’ within the group, gets the body producing endorphins and flushing away cortisol, resulting in the group being more open and engaged in the ’emotional wellbeing’ group work. 
  • One to One emotional wellbeing sessions for children and young people working on specific areas of need, issues and challenges.
  • Relax4SAT’s – For Year 6 pupils approaching their SAT’s. Four week course of sessions (45 mins-1 hour), based around relieving exam stress. Each week has a different ‘topic of focus’. Sessions teach techniques for pupils to use which relieve stress and anxieties, and engage the brain for better attention and recall.
  • Just Relax – For adults/staff. Available as single sessions, or block bookings, Just Relax is designed to allow staff to take some time to take care of their own emotional wellbeing. Sessions include ice-breaker talking games/group time to talk; muscle relaxation through stretching and self-massage; breathing techniques; visualisations and relaxations.
  • Family Workshops – Bringing families together to engage in physical movement; bonding games and activities; family massage; breathing techniques; relaxation. A wonderful way to engage the whole family, facilitate relationships between the school and families, improve wellbeing for the whole family.
  • Boxercise – For Primary and Secondary School aged children and young people. Encouraging children to be active, controlled and confident. Boxercise teaches technique and footwork, and is a highly effective form of cross training. Sessions are fun, accessible, non-contact and non-competitive. They teach young people coordination, balance, working safely with peers and the importance of control and technique whilst providing an excellent fitness workout.
  • MiniFit – 20-30 minute interval training workouts designed for children. Engaging, fun and an excellent fitness blast!
  • RockBox – RockBox is stress busting, fun, fitness session for the body and mind. This session is suitable for all ages (and loved by all ages!), using drumsticks and non-contact boxing fitness, to rock music, for a great all over body workout. It’s an exercise session with a difference and all of our schools love it!
  • Staff Wellbeing
