Vision & Aims

Our Vision

At Pennington Church of England School, we want our children to have an equal opportunity to achieve success and reach their full potential, regardless of gender, race, culture or background; and to become independent learners within a Christian environment, which is safe, caring and happy.

The whole school is committed to an exciting and relevant curriculum that has high expectations and is appropriate for individual needs and gives everyone the opportunity to succeed.

By working closely with children, staff, parents and the community, we will help our pupils to develop into well-motivated, resilient, responsible and fulfilled young people.

Be safe through:

Ensuring that all children are safe, and feel safe from harm, neglect and bullying in a Christian environment which is happy, caring and nurturing and ensures every child is heard.

Developing high self-esteem, self discipline and respect for others, and understand the importance of choosing a healthy lifestyle.

Promoting a love of learning and an enjoyment of achievement; ensuring the highest academic, social and spiritual progress and achievement for each individual child. As well as, recognising that children develop at different rates, possess a variety of skills and abilities, have different needs and display a range of personalities and interests.


Achieve economic well being through:

Enabling all children to become life long, enquiring, motivated and happy learners; with a desire and confidence to learn, achieve and make decisions, and yet not to be afraid to make mistakes. To develop an understanding of the wider world, occupations and opportunities in the local community and beyond.


Make a positive contribution to the school and the wider community through:

Ensuring all those within our school community have mutual respect, kindness and consideration for others and recognise and celebrate the variety of cultures, religions, languages, experiences, needs, views and personal attributes within our school and the wider community.

This philosophy and aims support an acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, so that our pupils develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
