The Evidence

The benefits of mindfulness for school staff have been well researched. See Professor Katherine Weare’s paper Evidence for Mindfulness: Impacts on the Wellbeing and Performance of School Staff.

In particular, reported benefits of mindfulness for school staff include:

  • a reduction in stress, burnout and anxiety

  • a reduction in the sense of task and time pressure

  • an improved ability to manage thoughts and behaviour

  • an increase in coping skills, motivation, planning and problem solving

  • an increase in self-compassion and self-care

If you are also interested in teaching mindfulness to your pupils, it is important that you first learn it for yourself.
