Sessions within Education
Mind Marvels deliver emotional wellbeing sessions based on the NHS 5 Steps to Wellbeing. Health and wellbeing is rightfully a top priority for all schools, nurseries and communities. This is why our sessions are carefully embedded within these Curriculum for Excellence outcomes. Mind Marvels can help young people with varying abilities and different age groups. We deliver sessions within educational establishments, community clubs and many more areas. Sessions are flexible and can work within classrooms, nurture groups, families, and as one to ones.
For sessions funded by PEF, we can provide pre and post questionnaires to staff/parents/carers and pupils for the school to assess the impact of the wellbeing sessions.
Examples of our work include:
- Whole class sessions during primary school health week
- Block of group sessions with S1-3 nurture group students
- Council and social work partnerships delivering weekly sessions at ASN schools
- Private nursery sessions both indoors and outdoors
- Staff training on NHS 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing
- Virtual school sessions, both pre-recorded and live for schools
- Sessions with local Brownie groups

Mind Marvels deliver emotional wellbeing sessions based on the NHS 5 Steps to Wellbeing.
Mind Marvels can differentiate sessions for the appropriate ability and age group with each step designed to give young people increased confidence, calming tools and engaging activities to regulate their own emotions. Our sessions are directly linked to health and wellbeing outcomes within Curriculum for Excellence. Sessions can be tailored to a specific issue, e.g. anxiety, stress, negativity or anger with practical strategies to overcome these feelings. Each session we will discuss the brain’s functions so young people have the vital understanding of how body and mind are connected. Each session will have activities and games based around feelings and actions and we will learn helpful calming strategies to put into practice straight away. All the sessions finish with relaxation time which adults and children enjoy equally!
