“You have introduced successfully a mental health focus in your school. Pupils and children complete the ‘calm brain’ activities at least three times a day. During these times, pupils are equipped with mental health and mind-calming techniques that they can deploy independently. This helps them to refocus their minds after break time and lunchtime, for example. As a result, the school is a calm and very purposeful learning environment. Pupils are focused and ready to learn after playtime and for the whole day, including late afternoon. This strategy has also improved pupils’ behaviour. Fixed-term exclusions are low and behaviour around the school is exemplary”

Who is Dr Sarah Taylor?
Dr. Sarah Taylor is the creator of CalmBrain®. Sarah is a Clinical Psychologist, with wide ranging experience across a number of areas of clinical practice. This has built on the early years of her career where she was a Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher in primary and special needs education establishments.
Sarah has spent several years extensively researching the combined roles that science, psychology, and physical reflexes have on mental health.
This was borne of a desire to identify the causes behind a well-publicised fact that an increasing number of children today experience anxiety, depression and difficulty attending, co-operating and controlling behaviour at school and in the home.
