At Offham Primary School we want all of our children to be supported and challenged to meet their full potential. Sometimes our pupils may need additional support to do well in school. Miss Rodgers our wonderful SEND coordinator works hard, alongside parents, outside professionals and her team of specialist support assistants, to ensure that in these cases children have the support and guidance they need.
At Offham we are confident in dealing with a wide range of needs including; dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech & language needs, autism, sensory needs and behavior difficulties. We are always looking to keep up-to-date on new initiatives and ensure all our staff are fully trained to support the needs of our current pupils.
In 2017 we added a new nurture provision to the school, this includes a calm and well equipped classroom space to allow children to complete booster and intervention sessions in a positive environment and an outdoor area where children can interact with our school chickens, guinea pigs, fish and garden to help them to feel calm and confident when times get tough, or simply as a reward for their hard work.
