Mrs Tamsyn Van Der Meulen

Principal’s Welcome

On behalf of all the staff, children, parents and governors I would like to warmly welcome you to Nyland School website.

Nyland School is specialist primary school for pupils with SEMH need. The Nyland School community includes a pupil referral unit on the school site, an outreach team based at the WHF Mountford Manor site, who work within mainstream schools in the borough and a therapy team.

At Nyland School we aim to build an ethos of emotional awareness and understanding, known as emotional quotient, before intellectual quotient, in order to promote relevant and sustained development of the ‘whole child’. This facilitates the outcome of nurturing valued and productive members of communities and society.

We use a curriculum that is directly designed to meet both emotional and academic need appropriately for our cohort. This combined approach includes a deep understanding of social emotional and mental health need and how this impacts on emotional well-being and so academic learning. It takes into account that pupils need both therapeutic and academic input in a combined, systemic way.

This is underpinned by creating an environment that promotes a feeling of belonging, of being connected to others and of ‘relatedness’. Staff build and model secure, healthy relationships that pupils can learn from and recreate in their lives after and beyond school. On this foundation pupils can build their learning.

Our staff are empowered to facilitate this approach to the curriculum through robust training with built in sustainability through long term investment in specialist training and development of staff.

The school offers enrichment activities including horse riding, yoga, swimming, outdoor pursuits, Skills Force activities, arts and crafts, cooking, Forest schools and DT projects.

Our classes are small with a high adult to pupil ratio in order to meet specific need and we begin each day with ‘morning mindfulness’ and celebrate the diverse and unique qualities our pupils bring to each new day.

We hope that you enjoy browsing our school’s website and it gives you an insight into all that we do at Nyland School. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you in any other way.
