  • We pledge to provide opportunities for all learners with ADHD to learn self-calming strategies such as breathing, progressive muscle relaxation or mindfulness.
  • We pledge to provide tactile resources in every classroom.
  • We pledge to produce a display for the whole school and hold one assembly to celebrate the achievements of people living with ADHD.
  • We pledge to provide information and support for parents and carers of children and young people with ADHD.
