Empathy Week

This week the school are support 52 Lives and are focusing on 'Empathy' during our PSHE lessons. All the children took part in the 52 Lives Empathy assembly and will complete various activities during their PSHE, SMSC and RSE lessons and daily circle time sessions this week.

Empathy allows us to make sense of ourselves as well as those around us - whether we agree with them or not. Empathy is ultimately vital for success as it underpins the skills of great leadership, creativity and communication.

The children will have a better understanding or be reminded of the following:

  • Helping to create a nurturing and supportive environment where the children can feel valued and respected.
  • Opportunities for children to share their thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive setting.
  • Opportunities for students to participate in a school-wide event.
  • Encourage the children to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development.
  • Help children grow their emotional literacy and understanding of others’ backgrounds.
