Take Five

Morven Park's Take Five Champion: Mrs Dance 


Take Five at school has been developed by Each Amazing Breath, a ‘not for profit’ organisation. For more information see

It is a whole school resilience programme based on breathing, grounding and awareness. It is supportive of improved mental wellbeing and provides children with a practical tool to help them self-manage their own behaviour.

Morven Park started the programme after staff training during Autumn Term 2017. Once staff became confident at delivering the breathing practices, the school moved into the next phase. Sixteen children undertook training to become Take Five Ambassadors, capable of leading practices within the school.

The next phase we entered was 'train the trainers'. This involved six of the current ambassadors training a further eight children with the support of our outside trainer and the school Take Five Champion teacher. 

In 2019, we moved into the child led phase where four of our child trainers successfully led sessions to train a further eight children including four from year three to become ambassadors. Take Five is fast becoming an exciting and powerful tool. 

In March 2020, alongside Abbey Hill Primary and Kirkby College, four of our trainers and leads will be presenting a gala event for the community promoting the amazing benefits of Take Five.
