Welcome to Penponds

I am delighted to welcome you to the Penponds School website which I hope will provide insight into our vibrant, creative and happy school located on the edge of Camborne in the beautiful countryside of west Cornwall.  

In our school we encourage our children to aim high and achieve their best in everything they do. As a Rights Respecting School, we focus on teaching children about the rights of the child as detailed in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Our five focused rights, as chosen by the children are: Right to a Voice, Right to be with friends and join clubs, Right to an education, Right to be the best you can be and the Right to Relax and Play.

We are committed to ensuring that our children thrive during their time at Penponds and that they are instilled with confidence, curiosity and creativity to be ready for whatever challenges come their way. Children are encouraged to care for themselves, each other and their environment in school and the wider community.

We believe in inspiring pupils to challenge themselves and become leaders of their own learning.
