‘God has given each of us different gifts
Together we can do great things.’

At Pennington Church of England Primary School we share Christian values and God’s love through our teaching and learning.

We aim to nurture and educate every unique Pennington child, regardless of gender, race, culture or background. We celebrate individuality and appreciate everybody’s different gifts.

Children grow into happy, confident people who proudly reach their potential whilst developing their own talents and interests. We enjoy learning within our Pennington family, our community and God’s wider world.
