A message from our headteacher

A warm welcome to Widey Court Primary School. Widey Court is a large, three-form entry Primary School situated in the Crownhill area of Plymouth surrounded by Widey Woods.

Here at Widey Court, we offer a fully-rounded curriculum, supporting all of our children, regardless of need or barrier, to achieve their very best. Reading , Writing and Maths are taught daily, however we also pride ourselves in the development of our foundation subjects. We believe that all children at Widey Court will have the opportunity to express themselves through creative subjects such as Art, Design and Technology, Sports and Music. We encourage the enrichment of our curriculum to 'hook', immerse and engage the children's curiosity and love of learning. We believe in the importance of bringing learning 'alive' and providing opportunities to flourish, try new things and overcome challenges.

All children achieve their best at Widey Court.

We bring the staff, children and families together at our half termly events to enjoy some great activities. We’d like to think that Widey Court is a community and whether it’s a Halloween Disco, Christmas Fayre, Summer Fayre or an Easter Egg Hunt, we can offer cheap social and family activities whilst raising money for our school with the help of all our amazing volunteers. Widey offers that extra sparkle to any event and the children’s smiley faces are a testament to that!

The children are all so lovely and the teachers have been very welcoming. I am in admiration of everything they have to do!

Being a recent ‘newbie’ to the Widey team was the best decision ever made, as I feel like I have been accepted into a warm, kind and caring family. The environment when you enter the school is something you can’t explain; it’s like magic!

Christmas in my industry is where people are clinging on for dear life, just looking forward to the turkey. Teachers seem to step into the next gear! You and your staff seem to be at every school play, Christmas carol concert and choir event. If the event itself is not out of hours, and most seem to be, then I am sure the endless planning certainly was. As a parent I have loved each event I have been to and they are super uplifting but it is plain to see all the hard work that goes in. Thanks to everyone at Widey, as a parent and as a governor, it is very much appreciated.

Parent and New Governor

I have been a part of Widey Court since my very first year of teaching. With Widey being a large school, the opportunities for professional development are fantastic. Everyone is so helpful and supportive!
