How are we different

The Nishkam School Trust Education Model is led by virtues. Virtues, such as, compassion, humility, service, contentment, optimism, truth and forgiveness. Values are prevalent in every aspect of teaching and learning and are modelled by teachers and staff alike throughout our schools. In 2016, the virtues led model was further enhanced with The Virtues Programme – ‘Honour the Spirit’, which provided a guide to the overarching approach to being educators and mentors at Nishkam School Trust. This Virtues Programme is about reinforcing our whole school approach, and all staff speaking ‘the language of virtues’. The ‘Language of Virtues’ guides us in fundamental ways ‘to use the power of language to awaken the innate virtues in pupils and thereby to bring out the best in them’.
