Aims and Ethos
Our School Aims & Ethos Statement
The aim of the staff is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment in which pupils may group and develop through a series of structured educational experiences.
We aim to work with children on a challenging, wide and varied curriculum underpinned by Christian principles in order that our pupils may develop a thirst for the enjoyment of learning.
At Pencombe school we aim to help pupil develop lively, enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally, to apply themselves to tasks and physical skills. We aim to encourage a work ethic in order that all children may reach their true potential physically, academically, socially and spiritually – to achieve a fullness of life through positive and realistic goals. It is the intention of the staff at Pencombe school to lay a foundation of basic skills in all areas or the curriculum in order for the children to progress with ease to the next stage of learning and in preparation of adult life.
We aim to provide children in our school with an understanding of religious and moral values, and an understanding of the physical world and it’s people; combined with a sense of value of its resources, in order that the children can relate to themselves and their immediate environment to the wider world. It is our intention to develop and maintain friendly and positive links between school, home and community, thus enabling parents and others to understand the aims and methods of our school and the importance of their role within it.
