Welcome to Pencombe CE School
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.”

Food and Drink

Drinks

We encourage the children to drink water throughout the day.  Please do not put water bottles in reading bags as they can often leak.

Milk is also provided and is free up until your child is five. 

Snacks

We are a healthy school and promote the eating of healthy foods. Each child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a piece of fresh fruit every day. 

Lunches

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are able to take advantage of the Government’s ‘Universal Free School Meal’ scheme.  There is a selection of hot meals and also a cold option. Children are encouraged to use the salad bar and can choose from a selection of pudding of the day, fruit and yoghurts. Water is provided with all meals.

We encourage children to eat with a knife and fork and develop their social skills as they talk and eat together.

If you do not wish to take up school meals then your child will need to bring in a packed lunch. 

Hot lunches are supplied by Alliance in Partnership (AiP) and lunches cost £2.20 per day.
