Curnow School Champions


At Curnow we consider we are all ‘champions’ of learning evidencing this in the classes we teach on a daily basis. We believe we always act as advocates for our learners upholding ‘pupil voice’ across the school to ensure we continue to be the best we can be.

To uphold /maintain this standard we recognise the need to continue to develop our skills, knowledge and expertise to ensure we always meet the needs of our learners and effectively support staff professional development. We additionally recognise the duty of care we have towards our staff and their well-being to ensure they are able to meet the demands of their roles/responsibilities in achieving the best outcomes for learners.

To secure what we aim to achieve we have identified through our School Improvement Plan the development of school based champions.

Through the establishment of such ‘champions’ we aim to:

  • Continue to support and meet the learning needs of all pupils at Curnow particularly in light of any new research/reports published nationally
