WHAT IS CALMACLASS?

Calmaclass gives teachers a toolkit of quick and simple relaxation exercises that can be used at key times of the day…
  • settle students during registration
  • restore calm after busy break and lunch times 
  • manage class disruptions

DO YOU:

Feel overwhelmed by the number of young people struggling with stress and anxiety in your classroom

Worry about how poor mental health is affecting pupil learning and academic results 

Want to support the emotional wellbeing of pupils but are not sure how

Have no extra time to take on another wellbeing programme

Need quick and simple bite-size exercises to help your pupils self-regulate

Having a regular morning pause is vital to help those pupils who arrive at school in a jangly and anxious state.
 
In this state, they won’t be ready to think rationally and the whole classroom can become affected.
 
Calmaclass interrupts this situation and allows the children’s nervous systems to calm down. From there, their rational brain begins to engage, they feel safe, centred, grounded and ready to continue the day knowing they can fully engage and retain information.
 
Regular pauses can be repeated throughout the day to help keep pupil’s nervous systems regulated. 
 
Calmaclass is perfect for teachers who have no time to take on board lengthy mindfulness programmes
 

I have been using the Calmaclass toolkit with my Year 1 classes for just over a year. I introduced them as a method of calming them down after hectic lunchtimes. I have continued to use the resources at this time of day, a couple of times a week and the children look forward to coming in and having a short time of quiet and calm – they always remind me if I forget.

CALMACLASS TECHNIQUES INCLUDE:

Research-based mindful and relaxation techniques
Sensory awareness exercises
Physical and mental exercises
Peer/self massage
Visualisations
Stretching and breathing exercises
Positive affirmations 

Exercises are designed to help pupils to develop a range of physical and emotional skills that will enhance their personal and academic skill whilst supporting their emotional health and wellbeing.

Calmaclass encourages pupils to stop and take mindful brain breaks during the day, so allowing them to increase their brain power, concentration and improve learning. 

It aims to support your pupils to build good emotional health through relaxation, meditation and values-based learning.

Teachers can now easily access a toolkit of mindful exercises that can be used before and after break and lunchtimes, during transitions, circle time and those moments where the whole class needs to cool down.

Whilst other educational programmes can cater to improving the analytical left brain, Calmaclass is a creatively oriented right-brain approach to mindfulness that encourages students to get in touch with core personal values of self-worth, happiness, kindness and gratitude.

Our exercises can help get your pupils into a relaxed state where they are ready to learn.

The Calmaclass programme works on the integration of the left and right brain.

Over the last 4 years we have invested significantly in rolling out Relax Kids in our area. Relax Kids gives young people and families skills to build up their resilience and start to prevent mental health issues and identify mental health issues before there is a problem.

Catherine Richardson, Public Health Lead, Durham County Council

As a Local Authority teacher for mental health I wholeheartedly recommend Calmaclass to all schools I work with. Individual children and whole classes love to use the exercises and resources, which provide them with a great sense of emotional wellbeing. This is wonderful for teachers, teaching assistants and learning mentors.

PILOT

In a 3 YEAR PILOT 2006-2009 Sylvester Primary School in Knowsley reduced their fixed term exclusions from 19 to zero after using daily Relax Kids exercises.
 
Relax Kids was used as a whole school approach. There were short daily relaxation sessions throughout the day, weekly relaxation classes and lunchtime classes, after school Relax Kids clubs, daily class affirmations and special Relax Kids events during Health Week and schools Friendship Week.
 
Two relaxation rooms were created and in every class pupils’ overall level of emotional literacy rose and the number of incidents has fallen, and parents and teachers have reported healthier and happier children.
Using the NFER Emotional Literacy Assessment and Intervention tool, Sylvester Primary School was able to directly measure the impact of their approach to the social and emotional aspects of learning since introducing Relax Kids.
 
After Relax Kids 3 year pilot, 91% of pupils in the school scored average, above average or well above average on their overall level of emotional literacy on the NFER scale. The school also measured a dramatic improvement in pupil behaviour. The number of serious behaviour incidents, including aggressive or violent behaviour, or serious disrespect halved in the first year, halved again the following year and continued to fall in the final year of the pilot. Incidents of repetitive low-level disruptive behaviour also fell by 20%.
 
Knowsley Education Authority were so impressed with the results, Relax Kids was introduced to all 57 schools in the Borough.
 
After, OFSTED gave the school an ‘Outstanding’ for emotional well-being, personal development and pastoral care
 

It really does make a difference to the lives of those who participate. Children are less hyper-active, therefore calmer, kinder, and more focused.

I use Calmaclass in my school and I can not recommend it highly enough. I work with 4 and 5 year olds in a very socially and economically deprived area. There are a lot of behaviour issues but the use of Calmaclass really helps to calm them down and gives them a channel for expressing their emotions. Thank you for this wonderful resource which has been so successful that we will be rolling it out to the rest of the school.

We have been utilising our new “magic powers of Calmaclass” with small groups and one to one sessions with children to transition them from one activity to the next, and have had success with this. On one occasion it was with a pupil who was coming down from a high state of stress, and the positive impact was great to see.
