Welcome to Kate Beddow, Calmer Classrooms


I help teachers to create Calmer Classrooms...

By teaching you relaxation and mindfulness techniques I will help you to reduce your stress levels so that you can better support the children in your class. By creating a calm and focused classroom you will not only feel happier but your students will achieve more and have key skills to help them stay happy and mentally healthy for life.

My whole school mindfulness programme is ready!

Presenting Mojo


Calmer Classrooms is a true labour of love. I have designed it to be easy to implement for even a total novice and the most affordable whole school programme I have found by a long way. Unlike some whole school mindfulness programmes this can be taught by anyone with teaching skills, no training needed. I have included comprehensive notes and all the resources you need. It will be updated regularly so will grow as your skills grow.

Are you ready to welcome Mojo into your school?

Kate Beddow - Calmer ClassroomsI very definitely have a calmer classroom since introducing mindfulness – and the way I first introduced it last year was using your Harry Potter lesson, which immediately had the pupils interested and engaged.”

Kate BeddowHaving worked in education for many years I have seen how the job has changed and how your priorities, as a teacher, have been squeezed. Statistics and assessments have overwhelmed much of teaching and learning.

As a qualified holistic therapist and teacher, I am in a unique position to help you. By combining my skills I have created lessons and training sessions which I deliver in schools across the country. I have also created lesson plans, and training sessions for you, so you can teach your students about the importance of good mental health, wherever you live.

Give your pupils mindfulness and relaxation tools to help them deal with the pressures of assessment. If you do, you are giving them the tools to navigate life with calm and focus, and their results will improve too.

I use a combination of simple relaxation techniques, breathing exercises and mindfulness techniques. It is possible to improve everyone’s mental health in just 5-10 minutes a day. I have worked with children for over 20 years, and experienced the many sides of education first hand. Unfortunately I have witnessed an alarming rise in the number of teachers and pupils suffering from stress and anxiety. I am dedicated to helping schools with their emotional health and well being.
