Wickham Court School Ethos
Wickham Court School is committed to providing an excellent education for pupils between the ages of two and a half and sixteen, irrespective of nationality, religion, race or class. We seek to provide an environment for learning that is safe and secure; one that is aesthetically enriching, and one that enables all pupils to reach their full potential through a dedicated staff and excellent facilities. We believe that small classes and individualised attention for all our pupils is essential for learning to flourish and we recognise that education is very much a partnership between pupil, school and family. We look on every child as an individual and they are central to everything we do.
Finally, while our focus is certainly academic in nature, we are committed to educating the whole person and indeed, to helping our pupils understand the importance of responsibility, compassion, fairness and honesty in all their endeavours.
Wickham Court School processes “personal data” including “sensitive personal data” (such as medical information), for the purposes of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils, parents and staff, for the legitimate interests of the school.
We seek to ensure that all relevant legal obligations of the school, parents and pupils are fully complied with and that all processing of data is done lawfully and fairly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation 2018. The school has a comprehensive policy covering data governance and is registered with the Information Commissioner’s office. Please address any enquiries to the Headteacher.
In particular, please be aware of our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, as we are committed to maintaining a safe and secure environment for your child. We operate, amongst other policies, a strong Safer Recruitment Policy.
Please note that within the Complaints Procedure, there is a facility to request the number of complaints within the past year. A list of school staff is also available upon request.
