Welcome to Nishkam School West London, a place of great optimism, purposefulness and calm where pupils not only excel academically but also learn to become compassionate and respectful human beings.
Hopes are set very high for our outstanding-rated all-through school, as we look for our pupils to achieve the very best in preparation for higher education and a life of purpose. Firm foundations have already been laid, with primary results in Key Stage 1 placing the school’s performance in the top 5% for attainment nationally. But even more encouraging for us are the values demonstrated by our pupils in their everyday lives.
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace. Last week pupils discussed the importance of Peace.
Welcome back to all our new pupils, families and staff. It is our ambition to provide a 'faith-inspired, virtues-led' experience to prepare our pupils to become the compassionate leaders of tomorrow and, at the same time, achieve academic excellence. We believe in bringing together pupils, parents, teachers and the wider community to build an environment to enable pupils to flourish, as well as recognise and realise their full potential. The 'Nishkam' ethos is to create a 'selfless' mind-set, to go beyond ourselves to serve others. We look forward to you joining us on this special journey.
Award ceremonies will be taking place to mark annual achievements across our schools. Pupils will receive awards for virtues including faith and service. Congratulations to all our pupils this academic year. We wish you all the best and thank you to all pupils, staff and parents for being part of our Nishkam journey.
New Beginnings - Transitions Pupils and staff commemorate the school year on the love and forgiveness that have been displayed, and hard work in new learning, and to support all pupils with the next step, whether this is to the next school or the next year group. Pupils consider how they may adapt to change and be optimistic about the future.
Pupils last week learnt the principles of the Peace Charter for Forgiveness and Reconciliation and the importance in the way we live our lives locally and globally. https://www.charterforforgiveness.org/
Pupils this week explore one of the golden threads "Trust In God" and how famous individuals (or situations) where their belief in God (and virtuous living) has influenced them.
To all our pupils, teachers and families have a wonderful break and all the best to those moving on to chapters new and to all those back in the new academic year we will see our Nishkam family soon.
