At Nyland Campus 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.
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.
Both our academic and emotional curriculum are designed to support motivation, engagement and thinking in order to promote learning and progress.
