Support for primary schools
We provide a programme for primary schools called EARLY Minds. Delivered in classrooms by a qualified primary school teacher, EARLY Minds teaches primary age children about their emotional needs through stories, activities and movement. EARLY Minds enables both children and adults to learn to talk about and take care of their own mental health and to better understand how to help those around them.
Sammy the Sea Squirt Movement Sessions are specifically designed for EYFS, KS1 and SEND classes. These sessions are based on Suffolk Mind’s first story book, Sammy the Sea Squirt, which encourages children to link the benefits of movement with good mental health. Sammy travels through the ocean discovering new friends, learning how maovement helps their brain including their mood and memory. This is an inclusive session, with movements that can be adapted for different abilities.
