A New Term!
Term 2 of the 2020-21 academic year and now that all children have completed the EPIC Bounce-Back-To-School Programme, our own Wellbeing Programme is focusing on relaxation and calming techniques this term.
All children are offered daily Yoga here at Milton Court - we follow the Mini-Me Yoga scheme.
Amazing Afternoons will be delivering a variety of calming techniques, breathing exercises, guided meditations and brain breaks. The children are actively encouraged to try multiple techniques so we can see what works best for them. The valuable knowledge and practice time they receive at school, will benefit them throughout other areas of their lives.
EPIC - BOUNCE BACK TO SCHOOL (September 2020)
When the children return to school this September, their well-being has been at the forefront of our planning. As such, we will be following the 'Bounce Back to School' programme, which has been designed by EPIC (Educational Psychologists and Wellbeing Service) to directly address any trauma the children may have experienced as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The programme runs every day for 6 weeks in school and among other attributes, has complementary activities for parents to do at home with the children. It is hoped this will unite our school community further, give parents further insight into what the children are learning and also provide a truly holistic approach to the socioemotional well-being of the children here at Milton Court.
The Milton Court Wellbeing Programme
We are so proud of our Wellbeing Programme and how it has helped the children here at Milton Court. You will see in our most recent Ofsted Inspection that it is noted the children 'are supported to understand the importance of physical and mental wellbeing'. We truly believe that wellbeing is an important, lifelong skill that is never too early to learn.
Our normal programme schedule can be found below - even our EYFS children get involved! Under development for the 2020/21 year is a 'Mighty Oaks Scheme' that will monitor and target key areas for Year 6s. We ultimately hope this scheme will be of great benefit to them, helping them through their KS2 exams and transition into secondary school.
Also important to note for the new academic year - is that the whole school will be following the 'Bounce Back' programme for Term 1, which has been designed by the Educational Psychologist and Wellbeing Services. We recognise that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the children have experienced an extremely unusual year to say the least. On returning to school in September, our priority is to ensure the socioemotional support and wellbeing of our students and families. More information on the 'Bounce Back' programme will be released to parents shortly.
