It is the primary aim at Court de Wyck Church School that every child and adult is valued and respected and everybody is treated fairly. We aim to promote an environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure. As part of our Christian ethos, we value each and every individual and work in close partnership with families of the children in our care. Our Christian values of respect, responsibility, courage, hope, perseverance and compassion run through our approach and beliefs. We ensure that all staff maintain consistency in their approach at all times.
