Raising Attainment in Schools

Are you looking for a way to improve academic attainment?

Do you want to improve the emotional experience and satisfaction of every child?

Do want every child to succeed in school and gain the skills they need in life?

Wellbeing is an integral part of the learning process.

Good attainment requires working with pupils and parents and is dependent on certain key foundations for learning; namely good literacy, numeracy, and health and wellbeing.

A recent report by Public Health England (March 2015) states that a child’s emotional health and wellbeing influences their cognitive development and learning as well as their physical and social health and their mental wellbeing in adulthood. Ofsted has highlighted that children and young people themselves say that they want to learn more about how to keep themselves emotionally healthy. Moreover schools have a duty to promote the wellbeing of students and propsals are being put in place to introduce Mindfulness in Schools.

Mindfulness is the practice of becoming more aware of what is happening in the present moment without judgement and how to relate more skilfully to thoughts, emotions, body sensations, reactions and impulses as they arise. Students who learn to practice mindfulness and other tools of self management are in a better position to access learning. They have reduced stress and anxiety and consequently develop the ability to concentrate and pay attention during lessons.

The benefits of Wellbeing training in Schools include:

  • Clearer Focus
  • Better Retention
  • Better Social Skills
  • Improved Creativity
  • Improved Behaviour and Self Control
  • Better Learning and Performance in Exam Results


As a Teacher-Child Practitioner, my aim is to facilitate learning by empowering the child to develop self awareness and self regulation.

Having over 40 years experience in mainstream and special education, I understand the challenges within schools in raising attainment and managing behaviour. I work with schools and my peers/colleagues as a Teacher-Child Practitioner to enable them to manage these challenges within the framework of education and utlimately achieve academic success for all children.
