TAKE 5 - Using Breathing Practices to increase resilience

Take 5 

We have a fantastic set of Take 5 Ambassadors in our school who have been trained to promote and teach breathing and  resilience to all our pupils.  

These students lead two practices each day to give other pupils the opportunity to become calm, focused and ready to learn. 

Some of our ambassadors are part of the 'Social Action Team' which has involved leading presentations to councilors, chief of police and other authority officials at Nottingham and Retford Town hall. These pupils are incredibly passionate about spreading health and well-being into the community. 


Take 5 is now VIRTUAL!! You can now access videos of breathing techniques by clicking the link below. 

The practices are only available to pupils and families of Sparken Hill, so you'll need a password. You should have had a text with this password on but if you are struggling, drop us an email at and we will email the password by return.
