What is Compassion?

Compassion introduces students aged 7-11 to core social emotional learning competencies, how to practice compassion and empathy, identify emotions, and exercise a growth mindset.

An online interactive provides pupils with an engaging lesson which they can use in class or at home. Built-in assessments and real-time grading help keep track of your students’ progress.

Offline resources have been created to support your teaching, including comprehensive lesson plans and pupil worksheets, all linked to the UK curriculum at key stage 2.
