My Happy Mind

At Cherry Fold we place a high importance on children's mental health and wellbeing. To promote this we have implemented a whole school programme called 'My Happy Mind.' 

My Happy Mind is all based around helping children to understand how their brain works and to support them in developing positive skills and habits to be their very best selves!

My Happy Mind is delivered in school by your child's class teacher through a series of interactive lessons and then the children apply these learnings throughout the day.

To further embed this learning, My Happy Mind has developed a Parent App.

We have already completed the first module of My Happy Mind, this was called 'meet my brain.' We have received very positive feedback. 


  • 100% of teachers say this module has helped their class understand their brain and the ways they can look after their own wellbeing.
  • 100% of teachers are now having 1-3 conversations with children each week about their wellbeing.
  • 100% of teachers say Happy Breathing has benefitted most children in their class.
  • 100% of teachers are integrating the language from Meet Your Brain into their teaching and learning.
  • Many children often enjoy Happy Breathing. One child told me "it fixed my heart".
  • The children have found the Team H-A-P teddy really useful.
  • Children are using the language in their learning. Some who struggled with Happy Breathing at first are now trying to use the technique.



Below are a couple of examples of breathing exercises you could complete at home.
