At Offham we believe that it is so important that our children understand the responsibilities that they have both now and in the future. It is important that children learn to take responsibility for their behaviour and make educated choices both in school and in life.
We encourage the children at Offham to take responsibility for their surroundings in school, in the local community and in the wider world. As a school we are working towards our Green flag Eco-Schools status.
- Offham’s Eco-Council are encouraging the school to look after their school grounds – creating new habitats for animals, recycling, saving water etc.
- As a school we are also looking to support Offham Village by completing termly litter picks.
- We are also educating our children about things they can do that will impact the wider world and look at current issues - such as the plastic in the sea.
Through the spring and summer months the children are involved in growing their own food for the kitchen and raising our own planters. The children get to be involved in raising their own chickens and collecting their eggs – selling them in the office.
Our school Eco-Council work purposefully to ensure that we are always forward planning and thinking. They collaboratively create and work from an Eco-Action-Plan: which can be seen on our Eco display board situated just outside the school office.
At Offham we love taking our learning outside into the school grounds and local environment.
