Take Ten Programme
At Oakwood, we are delighted to have access to the Take Ten Programme school-wide.
TakeTen is a system that has been developed specifically for teachers and pupils to enhance their emotional health and well being and has been embedded at Oakwood for many years now. The recent allocation of DE Education Restart Wellbeing Funding means we are able to install Take Ten technology on all our class computers for use by all pupils.
Designed to improve concentration, behaviour, performance and results, TakeTen uses a combination of biofeedback and proven techniques to train children, young people and adults to control the way their bodies deal with stress.
This maximises their concentration and ability to learn and it only takes ten minutes of class time a day.
The central element of the Take Ten programme is the Biofeedback Monitoring system. By attaching a sensor to their ear and connecting it to the software on your PC, our children can monitor their heart rate variability and see whether or not they are in the zone.’
By using interactive software and games, our children develop strategies and techniques to achieve a balanced physiological state – the ideal state for learning.
