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.”

Homework

Homework

We would like to encourage all parents to become involved with the education of their children, as the benefit for all concerned is great. The homework policy of the school is that children share their reading with parents each evening. This need not be a long session; five to ten minutes each day will help a child progress. Talking about books the story or information.

In Years 3–6, children are given spellings to learn each week in preparation for a weekly spelling test. In addition, pupils are given certain tasks to complete at home e.g. learning poetry/songs, obtaining information etc.  

If the child is having real difficulty, or becomes distressed, we ask parents to let us know, rather than persisting, as we need to know when the child has not understood the work set.
