About Us

May I offer all visitors a warm welcome to Curnow School’s web-site.  This web-site has been designed to give you a glimpse into the life of our school and show how hard our highly skilled staff team and pupils work to underpin our school mission statement. I am incredibly proud of our schools and the achievements made every day.

Please follow the links to view Curnow Lower School video and Curnow Upper School video.

A copy of our school offer and SEN information document is featured below for your interest.  

The school is split across two sites; Curnow Lower School is on the same site as Illogan Primary School.  This purpose built provision was completed in September 2014 and offers our young learners an environment which is conducive to their needs and one which will help us to meet our aspirational target of inclusive learning.

Pupils are engaged and curious, they make excellent progress

 OFSTED Inspection Report June 2019

Curnow Lower School provides a happy environment where all children belong, have fun, progress and are proud of their achievements.  We strive to create an inclusive learning experience by bringing together the two school communities of Curnow and Illogan, enabling wider friendships to develop and grow, thereby underpinning the core values held within our school. 

Curnow Upper School remains housed on the Drump Road site in Redruth. At Curnow Upper School we continue to build upon the fantastic progress made at Lower school with a clear focus on preparing all students well for their futures. Through high quality bespoke environments and resources we can ensure students experience a practical, interest led timetable of activities which promote independence and exploration.

Curnow pupils are inspired, enjoy school, learn well and make progress so that they are well-prepared for adult life

OFSTED Inspection Report 2019

Regardless of the school setting, we always strive to ensure our pupils’ learning and wellbeing needs are at the very centre of everything we do.  We truly believe that every learner is valued and is enabled to achieve the highest levels possible.  This was recognised in our last Ofsted inspection report when we were judged as an outstanding provider for the second consecutive inspection.

We work closely with parents/carers and major stakeholders and always aim to provide a happy and stimulating environment.

I hope this web-site shares some of the wide, varied and exciting opportunities that are available to our young people and provides you with the information you require.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss any aspect of our school.
