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.”
P.E. and Sport
PE at Pencombe CE Primary School develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming, athletics and outdoor adventurous activities.
PE promotes an understanding of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and it promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable children to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.
The school has a strong sporting tradition and has a number of school/club links. Subsequently the children will get the chance to work alongside a number of specialist sports coaches from the RFU, FA and ECB.
Our PE links with other schools and the wider community Now that our school is part of HMFA, we are able to take an active part in competitions with other schools within HMFA. These competitions are:
