Milburn Primary School & Nursery

My Happy Mind


We are happy to share with you that we are now a My Happy Mind school.

My Happy Mind is an award-winning programme that is grounded in neuroscience and scientific research.  It is a preventative programme designed to support the development of good mental health habits, resilience and self-esteem.  It has been commissioned by the NHS and we have been able to access it through the Trailblazers Mental Health Support Team who support our school.

All our children have a My Happy Mind lesson each week and are encouraged apply the strategies they learn to their daily lives.  

You can find out what they have been learning and further support the development of these good mental health habits at home through the My Happy Mind parent app.  The app includes videos so that you can follow along with the children's learning, audio breathing exercises, stories and fun activities that you can do together at home.  Information about how to access the app will be sent via Parent Mail.  If you have any questions, or difficulties accessing the app, please do not hesitate to contact us in school.

There are 5 Modules which will take place throughout the year:

Meet your brain

Meet Team HAP!  Team HAP helps children learn all about 3 key parts of their brain: the hippocampus, the amygdala and the pre-frontal cortex.  Why not ask your child what they can remember about these parts of their brain?

Celebrate - children build self-esteem by learning all about their character strengths

Appreciate - children are supported to develop an attitude of gratitude which has a proven, positive impact on mental wellbeing

Relate - children learn to improve their listening skills so that they are better able to communicate and understand each other

Engage - children will build resilience through setting and achieving goals.

Introducing My Happy Mind to Parents and the children 

This week we introduced My Happy Mind to the children and their parents. Everyone was really excited and are looking forward to learning more and beginning to use some of the strategies.
