Welcome to our school
Offenham CE First is a school where all individuals are valued and helped to become the best that they can be, fulfilling their God-given potential.
Our school contract is -
"Doing my best to give you the best, Will you join me in doing the same?"
All schools have their own distinctive ‘feel’ which makes each one unique and we believe that the ‘special feel’ at Offenham First School comes from our nurturing and caring family environment. Our school logo shows children safe within a pair of hands. These hands represent staff, parents, governors, PTA, peers within the school community and members of our church and wider community. The logo is also representative of-
"Each child unique and known by God" (Isaiah 49:16 - "I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands.")
Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a curriculum with abundant opportunities to experience life in all its fulness. We aim to prepare children for future education; and to help them acquire the wisdom, knowledge and skills needed to embrace the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. We also help our children understand where and how they belong. We educate for community and living well together through our Roots and Fruits values so that they will grow to understand the importance of a life lived well in community and for the common good.
The excellent start begins in our Reception class and continues through the school with staff providing a happy, supportive and purposeful environment, and a curriculum that excites and stimulates children’s imaginations and creative thinking. Our curriculum is delivered through a cross-curricular approach which is further enhanced by whole-school immersion days. Frequent trips and visits, community activities and a wide range of after-school clubs further add to the opportunities available to children.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
