2021 UPDATE: With schools reopening from March 8th in the UK, I’m happily returning to the classroom and booked out Tuesdays and Wednesdays for this school year. I am available to deliver one-off mindfulness/wellbeing sessions to students or staff, remotely if needed. Any visits in person will be undertaken in compliance with the latest DfE COVID-19 safety guidance/school policy. (Click here to view our Risk Assessment.)
In other news, I’m busy writing Mindful Sleep Stories, for adults and children, which you can find on the ‘Slumber’ app, or the ‘Get Sleepy‘ podcast. Zzzzz
Check out my YouTube channel for child-friendly mindfulness sessions to support children throughout lockdown and beyond.
Jo Steer is a UK teacher with a unique mix of experience and skills, working in infant, primary and secondary schools across West Yorkshire, delivering bespoke wellbeing packages on a supply basis.
Her passion for mindfulness-based holistic education, led by her own first-hand experiences of anxiety from childhood, make her the ideal school visitor amidst such turbulent times. Alongside years of classroom experience (specialising in the teaching of Life Skills and students with Special Educational Needs), she is a qualified Forest School practitioner, a Yogakidz instructor and has training in CBT essentials and mindfulness for children and adults.
From one-off mindfulness masterclasses, weekly wellbeing supply cover to year-long PSHE delivery (accompanied by delivery of the Skills with Frills curriculum) there’s something for everyone. Emotional intelligence and resilience are at the heart of all that we do. In all sessions, the emphasis is on providing a mix of skills, knowledge and practical takeaways that students can use immediately to better their mood, mindset and mental health in a lasting and meaningful way.
Explore the services currently on offer for different groups/individuals here and feel free to check out either Jo’s articles in TES or in the Skills with Frills Blog and by all means, help yourself to any of our free resources for use with your children/students.
