For all students to develop an understanding of the evolutionary society in which we live and challenge their perspectives on matters to promote empathy and respect.
Our students will be engaged mentally, physically, socially and spiritually to make well-informed decisions/choices whilst developing their resilience throughout the conscious curriculum provisions and connectivity of the class reads.
Here at OSSMA, we look to develop our students holistically. This is often achieved by challenging the student’s perspectives and actively engaging them in societal matters.
With the conscious curriculum, PSHE has become more interrelated with other subjects to promote empathy and resilience within their learning. PSHE lessons promote kindness and respect for everyone, which is a lifelong OSSMA legacy we wish for all of our students.
Alongside the PSHE provision at OSSMA, students will also have access to the sensory wellbeing room throughout PSHE lessons. This is where students will have the opportunity to develop their mental health coping strategies as well as practising self-care. In addition to this facility, some students will also have the opportunity of being involved in Dog Therapy sessions, working alongside a professional Dog Therapist, where they will learn how to manage their emotions (in different situations) as well as develop their self-esteem and confidence.
