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.

Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to our School From our Head Teacher, Maggi Newton
A very warm welcome to Pencombe CE Primary School. We hope that you will find our website interesting and informative and that it will give you some insight into life at our school.
Pencombe School is an exciting place to be, full of outstanding children, enthusiastic staff and lots of wonderful learning opportunities. With just three classes our small, friendly and caring school offers unique experiences for every child. Since taking over as head I have ensured that we have high standards; achievement and progress for all pupils is our priority. Our emphasis is placed on offering a creative, inspiring and motivating curriculum which excites and enthuses our children. We have superb outdoor learning environments which include a sports field. We use our outdoor areas to extend and enhance the high quality learning that goes on inside the school.
We believe that learning at our school is fun and exciting; challenging and rewarding. We offer a warm and caring environment which enables children to feel safe and secure as they grow, learn and develop. The foundation of our success is happy children working hard in safe and welcoming surroundings. We have a community where everyone feels valued.
We are proud to be part of an exciting Federation of schools together with Lord Scudamore Academy, Sutton Academy, Kings Caple Academy, Llangrove CE Academy, Canon Pyon CE Academy, St Weonards Primary School and Marden Primary Academy. This has enabled us to join a lively and welcoming community of like-minded pupils, staff and parents who all wish to share in a broad and balanced curriculum as well as create really exciting opportunities for us all to work together. Through shared resources and specialist skills teachers, we really are ensuring our children get the most out of these links.
If you have any questions after browsing through our website please do not hesitate to ring the school and book an appointment. We hope you feel inspired to look around our school and meet our wonderful children and see them at work! We look forward to meeting you and your child.
Maggi Newton, Executive Head Teacher
