Please find a copy of our latest Ofsted report in the Information section. We are extremely proud to say that within the report, it states that: ‘There is a strong team ethos across the school. Governors and staff are committed to seeing the school improve, and parents are appreciative of how the leadership and staff support their children. Pupil’s grow in knowledge and understanding through a well-balanced curriculum with a strong focus to improve basic skills. Teaching is effective across the school and successfully supports children with all abilities.’
One parent wrote: “My child enjoys going to school and is being looked after. If I have any worries, I speak to the teachers.”

PENCOMBE CE PRIMARY SCHOOL PTA
PENCOMBE CE PRIMARY SCHOOL PTA – REGISTERED CHARITY NO: 1082355
Pencombe CE Primary has a proactive PTA which is extremely well supported by hardworking, energetic committee members and generous parents, governors and friends.
The PTA willingly help at and coordinate events and support our activities throughout the year; this reflects the friendly and inclusive ethos of our school, and all the proceeds they raise helps to fund school activities and equipment. The PTA also provides valuable social opportunities for those in our school community to meet and have fun. Everyone is welcome to participate (all parents and carers are automatically members) and creative minds are welcomed to dream up new fundraising ideas and to help decide how best to spend the money the PTA raises.
The PTA provides regular updates to keep in touch with all those involved with the school. Recent projects which have been funded by the PTA include subsidising transport for trips and swimming lessons, ICT equipment, such as iPads and the interactive whiteboard in Birch class, playground equipment, classroom supplies and materials.
Further information about the PTA can be found in the Parent’s Welcome Pack or by watching the Welcome to Pencombe School PTA video (02:50).
The PTA committee meets regularly to discuss the school wish list, our events and activities and anything else which needs our consideration. Meeting details will be sent out via email/Seesaw about one week prior to the meeting date. All meetings are open and any member can come along to find out what the PTA is planning, share ideas and get involved – we would love to see you!
There are a number of ongoing fundraising activities that we use to help us raise money throughout the year, and which take very little effort!
The 50 Club allows Pencombe School parents, teachers and friends to buy numbered tickets which are entered into a regular draw. When the tickets are drawn, a percentage of the profit is given as the prize, with the remainder going to PTA funds. This is a really easy way to support the school, with a good chance of winning something for yourself! Membership forms will be available from the school at the start of each school year.
