Ilse consults with schools on health and wellbeing education through multiple areas of the curriculum – mainly PSHE, PE and DT. She is the Founder and CEO of The Children’s Health Project CIC and has specialised in all aspects of wellbeing since starting her teaching career 20 years ago. Her work primarily focuses on supporting subject leaders of PSHE, PE, DT and Mental Health leads. This has allowed Ilse to build wellbeing programmes with schools both nationally and internationally, and she has spoken at conferences in Dubai and Hong Kong.
Ilse looks upon wellbeing through four pillars: Nurturing Mindsets, Nourished Eating, Mindful Movement and Balanced Lifestyles, all of which feature in our curriculum and can be supported through enrichment. Most of her training for teachers and support staff centres around mindfulness, nutrition, inclusive movement in PE, and rest and relaxation. She runs online CPD, offers wellbeing clinics for families (nutrition, mindfulness and sleep), and mentors school staff – both professionally and personally.
