Dear Parents and Carers,

We are writing to inform you that we are going to introduce some elements of peer massage with the children in your child’s class/group. Relevant staff in our school have received training in the “Massage in Schools Programme.” This has worked very successfully in our school previously, and feedback from staff, parents and the children involved was very positive. The massage programme is based on respect and trust, and children must have the permission of the recipient before starting any massage. The massage is children to children, fully clothed and on their backs, arms, head and shoulders. Adults do not massage the children at all. Primary Schools who have adopted this approach have seen remarkable results in interpersonal skills, also in self confidence and creating a calmer environment. No child will be forced to participate if they prefer not to.

If you require further information, please feel free to discuss this with Mrs. Matthews, Mrs. Lindley or Mrs.Jubbs. If you have any objection to your child taking part in this, please inform a member of staff.

Thankyou.

Mrs. Lindley.
