Croeso i Ysgol Penrhyn – Welcome to Penrhyn School
All parents want the best education for their children and appreciate that it is the early years of schooling that are especially significant and important. A happy and secure environment that caters for the needs of all children, respecting the notion that we are all different and special, appreciating that at the heart of education is the pupil.
Penrhyn Church in Wales School will provide a challenging and stimulating experience-based curriculum for every child from nursery through to the end of Key Stage 2. We pride ourselves in finding the time to get to know the pupils and endeavour to develop each pupils’ potential to the full in a structured yet enjoyable way. With mixed year groups, continuity is much easier, pupils blend as a large family and incidences of ‘bullying’ are rare.
Pupils are catered for within mixed year classes, in this way younger pupils are exposed to higher levels of learning and movement between year groups is therefore much easier and possible.
Within such a climate the older pupils learn to be more independent, develop a greater self-confidence and demonstrate higher levels of responsibility. The younger pupils find that the school environment is warm, supportive and non-threatening.
The importance of the child is central to all the learning that takes place. Success in terms of achievement is celebrated rather than attainment.
A planned educational framework provides a broad and balanced curriculum ensuring a stimulating, exciting learning atmosphere with high standards. Project work that encompasses many curricular areas helps reinforce learning and provides a context for that learning.
These values and beliefs are at the heart of schooling in Penrhyn.
