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.”

Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The ‘Pupil Premium’ was introduced in April 2011. The Government provides additional funding for certain groups of pupils: those who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), children who are looked after and pupils whose parents are in the armed forces. This includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM within the past 6 years (FSM Ever 6).

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium…is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” Source DfE website.
