Vision, Values and Aims

 

Penponds Primary School will work with all stakeholders to create a happy, safe and stimulating environment where children become ‘Leaders of their own Learning’. By maintaining high expectations of the whole school community, our children will be equipped to become lifelong learners.  We encourage curiosity about the world, strive to be creative in everything we do and build confidence in our children to enable them to grasp opportunities and tackle challenges with resilience and self-assurance.

The Penponds Promise

The Penponds Promise is a collection of opportunities that the children will experience during their time at our school. The school community of Penponds have agreed that in order for all the children to fulfill their potential they must be given a broad range of exciting opportunities to thrive. That's our promise.

 

British Values

Penponds School is committed to serving its community. We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. We also understand the vital role we have in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally influence them.
The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key 'British Values' are taught in all UK schools. The government set out its definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.
The five British Values are:
  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
Below is a document that shows how Penponds School teaches and promotes these British Values alongside the Core Values of our school.
