If you visit our school, you will immediately become aware of our distinctive Christian values which underpin our school life. Our pupils’ behaviour reflects our 6 values (5 ‘C’s and an R) which are;
Respect, Courtesy, Consideration, Co-operation, Competence and Confidence

At Curzon School we take the pupils’ e-safety very seriously. All children agree and sign a code of conduct before using the internet and are required to adhere to it at all times. As a parent, there are a wealth of resources you can use to discuss and explore with your child(ren) around the topic of e-safety. Please find some links below:
The welfare of our pupils is extremely important to us and there are a number of policies and practices which are in place to help our children feel safe and happy in the school environment. We have anti-bullying ambassadors who have been trained to help children with any friendship issues. They lead assemblies and circle times on the importance of being a good friend. On the playground there is a buddy bench where pupils can sit if they don’t have anyone to play with. Although befriending them is a specific role of the anti bullying ambassadors, all children are keen to help. Each class has a ‘Worry box’ whereby children can post a note if they are unhappy about something. Classes often talk about matters which may bother them in a ‘Circle Time’. Circle Times are also used for enabling the class to work together as a team.
The behaviour of our pupils is of great importance to us. Our Curzon Code of Conduct begins with Respect to everyone, whatever their age. All pupils sign a school contract promising to
- Attend school regularly and on time;
- Dress myself properly in my school uniform and bring all the equipment I need each day;
- Show I am working my hardest at all times;
- Read every day at home and do any homework my teacher sets;
- Be kind and not hurt others;
- Respect teachers at all times, offering to help and support them and other pupils;
- Help care for the school, my classroom and the environment;
- Share my school day with my parents/ guardians;
- Make my teacher, my class and my parents / guardians proud of me.
The school does not tolerate bullying of any kind and has an anti-bullying policy. Whereas every child makes and breaks friends on what can seem like a fairly regular basis, if a child perceives an action of another child’s is bullying, it is important to us and time is spent fostering positive friendships and repairing any temporary fall-outs. Although sometimes it does take two to tango!
Two children from each class represent their class on the School Council. Here, pupils talk about any aspect of school life that they may wish to discuss. Teachers, the Headteacher and Governors often use the School Council as a sounding board for new ideas or to get feedback on different topics from each class. Surveys are sometimes undertaken by School Council or by staff to gauge interest or information on a topic.
