It’s Anti-Bullying Week. An instructor in a Devon school shares how her school is using MISP in this special week and other weeks too. Clare writes:

‘We have 21 classes here at our Primary School and all do MISP as it has such benefits in helping children to keep calm, increasing their concentration, reduction in bullying and improving relationships in the class. We introduce it from the first term in Foundation.
We believe that a child's emotional well-being comes first for readiness to learn. We love that MISP is firmly based on rights, responsibilities, respect and choice.

As this week is anti-bullying week, we have worn odd socks to support this and we did a whole school (except Foundation) massage as part of collective worship assembly. In these pictures we have 18 classes of 30, sat in line with their own classmates in front and behind as those are the children they are used to doing massage with. You can see some of the teachers demonstrating the actions.

Out of sight of the camera there was a conga of staff doing MISP at the back of the hall - I wish we had a photo of that!
