The 'Compassion' Team
Miss Rodgers, Miss Killick, Mrs Denmark, Mrs Wilson, Mr Hutchinson, Mrs Heeley and Miss Wood.
- 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.
Religious Education and Collective Worship, PSHE, History, Sex and Relationship Education
These subjects have been allocated to us to help analyse, maintain and improve.
What have we done this year?
Rosh Hashanah - 03/10/2019
We had a really wonderful celebration lunch for Rosh Hashanah day on Thursday! The children’s faces were full of joy when they saw the beautifully decorated hall, with it’s hanging apples, balloons and Rosh Hashanah bunting! The special lunch food was scrummy and the Challah bread was a triumph! We all enjoyed listening to Jewish celebration music in the hall whilst we chatted and munched. When asked the children all said that the honey cake was their favourite part! Each class also had an exciting range of activities and tasks to help us learn about the celebration.
