Compassion

The 'Compassion' Team

 

Miss Rodgers, Mrs Hurst, Miss Bowman, Mrs Heeley and Mrs Keast.

 

 

  • We live in a wonderful world made up of many different people with different beliefs, values, appearances, life situations and abilities. We believe that it is important all our children develop an appreciation and respect for the diverse society in which we live, showing care and compassion for others around them.
  • Strong PSHE (personal, social and health education) teaching and timely intervention support ensures that, alongside our firm behaviour and anti-bullying policies, we promote and uphold the positive value of compassion across the school.
  • Our wonderful inclusion team at Offham have developed a strong teaching and nurture programme to help develop friendships and tolerance at Offham. This includes the use of peer mentors (friendship friends) and buddies for our new children.
  • We have developed several nurture and wellbeing areas in our school, including our animal care courtyard and our sensory room. We use these places, alongside our specialist teaching assistants and play therapist, to help children to talk about and work through difficult times and experiences.

'Compassion' subjects

 

RE and Collective Worship

 

Religious Education (RE) allows children to acquire core knowledge and understanding of beliefs and practices of the religious and worldviews which not only shape their history and culture, but which guide their own development. The children learn about the 5 major religions in a creative and explorative way, with local visitors and religious leaders visiting where possible.  

 

PSHE

 

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and to prepare them for work and life in modern Britain. 

 

SEND

 

At Offham we are dedicated to providing an effective and inclusive education for every child's needs. For more information about how we accommodate for children's needs, see our 'Inclusion' page, SEND Policy and other additional information on the school website.
