The Courthouse way

Every child flourishing


Our aim at Courthouse is for every child to flourish.  We strive to create the conditions for staff flourishing, for family flourishing and for community flourishing so that the children of Courthouse are well rounded with individual areas of expertise and choices open to them for the next phase of their education.


We value the pursuit of knowledge, doing the right thing and leadership and team work.  We encourage children and staff to pursue knowledge at every opportunity and this is best done through talkinglistening and reading.

Our value of doing the right thing relates to the decisions that every child and adult makes each day.  We encourage everyone to do the right thing, even if it is difficult.  Our rules relate to our value of doing the right thing too: be readybe respectful and be safe.

Our value of leadership and teamwork helps us to develop future leaders and teach children to work effectively in a team.  To realise this value, we encourage children to adopt the habits of protection - leaders stand up for others who may not have a voice; inclusion - leaders go out of their way to include others who find themselves on the periphery; and service - leaders do things for others to make their lives a little easier.

Our aim and values set the tone for our vision which includes:

  • Offering a world class experience
  • Creating a calm and purposeful environment
  • Developing a skilled workforce and high performing culture
  • Addressing underachievement
  • Providing the right support at the right time for families
  • Developing leaders


Visits to Courthouse are warmly welcomed and we look forward to seeing you in school.
