The Neyland Way

Our school has clear values and expectations.  We encourage a positive, calm and welcoming environment where each child is valued and encouraged to develop their own personal skills and achieve their full potential.

As a school we listen to our pupils and respect their views and opinions.  We have four active pupil voice groups.  Including Rights, Respecting Ambassadors, School Parliament, Eco Warriors and Criw Cymraeg.  In these groups our children contribute their valuable ideas to support the school.


We follow a PSHE scheme called JIGSAW.   This programme has a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health.  Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.  Each year group takes part in a lesson of JIGSAW every week and weekly assemblies celebrate children's achievements when working on our school values.



Do Be-Mindful

We have introduced a new mindfulness programme Do-bemindful.  The aim of this is to develop awareness, self-regulation and resilience and encourage a calm, kind and compassionate culture in our school.


Yoga has been shown to improve health, wellbeing and educational attainment. PausePoints is a programme with specially tailored yoga exercises that children follow on-screen in class.  At Neyland Community School we feel this is vital to supporting children's wellbeing and give them a moment throughout the day to reconnect.


We are really excited at Neyland to be starting our journey with the  RRSA.  We have introduced the whole school community to the idea of working on the RRSA.  We are working with staff, governors and the wider community.

We have voted in two Rights Respecting Ambassadors from each class to form a pupil voice group.

Pivotal Approach

We follow the Pivotal Approach in Neyland Community School.   We encourage all children to be ready, safe and respectful.  Please see our Behaviour Blueprint below:
