Our Vision & Values

Our Vision

To provide an inclusive education within a safe, nurturing environment, where children can belong, learn and succeed. Whilst taking account of individual needs, children are prepared for their next stage of education and supported to become successful citizens of the future.

Our Values

  • Friendship: Building and managing positive relationships with others
  • Responsibility: Taking ownership of your words and actions
  • Trust: Showing and building the confidence to believe in others
  • Respect: To show consideration for feelings, views and property
  • Ambition: Always trying to do your best
  • Tolerance: Accepting others, regardless of difference

British Values

At Nyland School, we actively promote British values through our school vision, ethos, agreed rules, curriculum, and teaching. As such, we promote tolerance of, and respect for, people of all faiths (or those with no faith), cultures, and lifestyles.

We prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain by supporting them through our words, actions, and influence, not just within school, but also within the wider community.

Promoting Our Values

The government defines British values as:

  • Democracy.
  • Rule of law.
  • Individual liberty.
  • Mutual respect.
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths.

At Nyland School, we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this is a range of curriculum topics that have strong links to the British Empire. We actively challenge children, staff, and parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British values, including ‘extremist’ views.

As part of The White Horse Federation, we passionately believe that by working together, the children are able to have a higher quality of education, and that as colleagues, we will also benefit from and reap the rewards of a values-based organisation where no one is left behind.
