Nyland School is a 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 White Horse Federation 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 wellbeing and 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. It is upon this foundation that 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 the specialist training and development of staff.
The school offers enrichment activities including horse riding, yoga, swimming, outdoor pursuits, SkillsForce 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.

The White Horse Federation, made in Swindon, founded in 2012
The White Horse Federation is a Multi Academy Trust of primary schools, secondary and special schools. The federation grew from a passion to be collaborative in providing a first class education to a wide range of children so that each one could more fully understand what they were capable of, what talents they had and to strive for excellence in themselves in order to succeed in the next phase of their education and in the world of work.
At its heart is a belief that we want to develop the type of schools that we would be proud to send our own children to. We do this with a relentless drive for academic excellence blended with a shared moral purpose and shared values but also with an awful lot of fun and happiness in our schools. We genuinely believe in partnership working with our schools, the pupils and their parents and the wider community each serves to create the best possible outcomes for our children.
We also believe that our colleagues are among the finest in the country and we are proud to empower them through support, training and career opportunities. With such outstanding staff we are able to ensure every student achieves all that they are capable of and more, regardless of background, culture, heritage or ability.
