Distinct aims of the school

  • To provide one ‘pathway’ for Swindon’s mainstream schools and settings to access support for SEMH pupils. To provide advice, intervention groups, training and where appropriate, short-term dual-placements or long term provision at Nyland Campus
  • To promote an inclusive education ethos that supports primary schools and early year’s settings to successfully include pupils with social emotional and mental health issues
  • To ensure an equal responsibility between home, school, pupil and the Local Authority in bringing about positive and lasting change
  • To facilitate experiences and learning that promotes emotional intelligence through an integrated emotional quotient curriculum and to teach the learning skills necessary for successful engagement, motivation and thinking in order that pupils can progress in life and learning and become good citizens
  • To set high expectations that believe in pupils potential whilst understanding their need
  • To provide pupils with the opportunity for mainstream experience when it becomes appropriate to do so
  • To help parents feel safe and welcome in school through ‘family orientated activities’ that encourage parent and child cooperation and positive engagement in the child’s emotional progress, skills and learning
  • To provide and match therapeutic input that is appropriate and relevant for the individual pupil and that is part of a ‘joined up service’, where all professionals involved with the pupil, share information that will ensure progress that involves the ‘whole child’

Little Green Book

At the White Horse Federation we understand that every colleague is here for the best interest of the children. We want to ensure that no child is left behind and that the unique identity of each school is protected, celebrated and valued for the contribution it makes to ensuring children have the best education and experiences.

By being part of the WHF 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 you are also, not left behind.

The Little Green Book is a set of promises that as colleagues, we make to each other and to our organisation, for the ultimate benefit of the children and families that our schools serve.
