Why Kindness Matters

Imagine coming into school each day and having:

  • Less answering back and shouting out
  • Less ‘kicking off’, be it in lessons out on the yard or in the corridors
  • Less disrespect in class
  • Fewer behaviour incidents

And let’s not forget the feedback you get when you have to ask:
Why are you wearing trainers? Where is your tie? Where’s your pen?

Or to put it another way…

Imagine coming into school each day and having:

  • More respect from pupils
  • Positive relationships
  • Positive attitudes toward learning
  • Pupil participation
  • Mutual respect for both teachers and pupils

Sound good?

What’s the key to all this?  Well, I know personally from being a teacher how important it is to teach children the importance of Kindness.

That is why I created the Kindness Matters 30-day Challenge.  Help your pupils to experience for themselves how kindness helps builds strong relationships between staff and pupils and benefits everyone towards achieving their education by practising kindness daily.

More importantly, making your classrooms and school a kinder place.

It has been scientifically proven that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. So, imagine what happens when you and your pupils commit to doing the Kindness Matters 30 Day Challenge,

Well, I can tell you that. Your pupils will form a new positive pattern/habit of behaviour, which in turn will bring more kindness into the classroom and the school. One positive benefit of kindness is the release of the ‘feel good’ hormone Oxytocin.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I like to teach pupils when they are in a positive mood, and that makes my lesson go better rather than the opposite.

When your pupils adopt the attitude and understanding of simple acts of kindness that some pupils take for granted, like complimenting a teacher on a good lesson, opening doors, letting another pupil go before them in the lunch/break queue etc., it can have a massive impact on their day and other pupils days, too.

So, why is it essential for your pupils to take the Kindness Matters 30-day challenge? How will it benefit them and staff?

  • Reduces negative behaviour incidents
  • Makes them happier
  • Creates a positive learning environment
  • Makes for better teacher/pupil relationships
  • It’s contagious – in a good way
  • Helps reduce anger
  • Gives pupils confidence

Practising Kindness daily in school is one of the most effective ways to help create positive relationships with staff and pupils, helping them to achieve their education.

With pupils and staff committing to The Kindness Matters 30-day Challenge and experiencing the transformation for themselves, they will make your school a kinder place.
