Ofsted Reports

A message from the Headteacher



I am delighted to share with you the outcomes of our recent Ofsted inspection where we have once again been validated as a GOOD school.  

We are thrilled to report that the inspection went incredibly well. We are proud that this report accurately reflects the integral role the learning values play in all aspects of school life. It is clear the team were able to see the significant improvements to the curriculum since their last inspection.  

Of course, none of this is possible without the dedication of all the staff and governors.  

A huge congratulations to our wonderful pupils, the staff, governors and volunteers who all helped to create this ‘small school with a big heart.’  

Many thanks, 

Bev Seed


What did our parents say? 

As part of the process, parents are invited to share their views or comments with the inspectors about the school. This year, we had the highest number of questionnaires returned, which we thank each and everyone of you for. The comments that were shared directly with us from the lead inspector are as follows:


‘My child loves attending the school. The teacher are helpful, caring and enthusiastic. It's a great little school and I'm so glad we chose to send her here.’


‘My daughter has always been happy to go into school and has enjoyed her time at Pennington Infants so far. She is also always happy when I pick her up at the end of the day. They have always been helpful when I’ve had any concerns.’


‘I would like to add. My son struggles with groups and was always the shy boy sat in a quiet corner however since starting Pennington infants he is thriving! He’s on his 2nd year at Pennington infants and you would never know he used to be shy and quiet. My son struggles with learning and is working at a very low level but the school make him feel included in the classroom and also tell me at what I can do to help him.’


Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask the admin team or class teachers.
