Children from Reception to Year 6 have taken part in weekly Yoga Bugs sessions. They have been assessed Using Yoga Bugs Performance Review Impact and Change Programme in the following areas – social, emotional, physical, behavioural and PSHE. All students have made between 1 and 4 progress points. See separate assessments.

We have recently started a PMLD Yoga Bugs session.
