Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God

School Vision and Values

Our Motto



Our Vision

At Nyewood Church of England Infant School our children are confident, happy and independent learners who take an active role together in God’s world.

‘I have come in order that they might have life – life in all its fullness.’ John 10:10


Our Approach

We have high expectations for all members of our Nyewood School Family. To ensure that our children are well prepared for their future journey in God’s world, we are:

  • Developing our school family within a Christian ethos which demonstrates cooperation and mutual respect where everybody feels safe, valued, supported and encouraged to achieve their best
  • Providing a challenging learning environment that offers a range of exciting and meaningful learning experiences, to enhance individual skills and talents, so that every child sees themselves as a lifelong learner
  • Delivering a curriculum which develops lively enquiring minds of highly motivated, autonomous learners, who are prepared to take risks in their learning, supporting each other in failure and celebrating with each other in success
  • Encouraging a greater understanding and appreciation of the world in which we live, and seeking opportunities to play an active part in it.


Our School Family Life

Nyewood CE Infant School is not only a school that children attend, but a family, to which they belong.

Our school family is strengthened and enriched by the life and teachings of Jesus, in accordance with the beliefs and traditions of the Christian faith. As an extension of this, we foster a set of core family values, that we encourage each member of our school family to come to understand and put into practice. These values permeate through all that we do.


You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.’ Psalm 139 13-14

We value the uniqueness of each individual in God’s world. Children develop an understanding that they are uniquely made by God and that He gives us each gifts, talents and abilities which we have to nurture, grow and share with those around us as we all have a role in God’s world.


Treat others as you want them to treat you.” Matthew 7:12

We value kindness. Through Jesus’ teaching, children learn about kindness and respect and what this looks like in the way they behave, how they treat each other and their role in taking care of God’s world.


‘Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And He said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”’ Matthew 4:18-20

We value independence to make positive decisions in the way we live our lives. Children learn that independence is about making good choices, being a disciple (follower) and making a choice to listen to God and being shown and encouraged to live out our daily lives as He teaches us.


‘Jesus often went away by Himself to pray.’ Luke 5:16

We value the power of communication through making connections with others, sharing experiences and building relationships. Children learn how to communicate well with God and those around them and, through prayer and reading of the Bible, to hear God’s voice speaking to them.
