At Pencombe school we believe in entitlement. The right for everyone to be valued and respected for who they are. We beleive out pupils are entitled to the best education possible, irrespective of race, colour, gender, ability and/or geographical location.
This we aim to achieve through well planned schemes of work, creative, motivating delivery in a suitably stimulating and well resourced Christian environment. At Pencombe school we believe education should be seen by the pupil as life enhancing and life lasting.
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.
