Welcome toPennington infant schoolA small school with a big HEART

Pennington in the Community

Pennington Infant School is a community school with a strong sense of cohesion and togetherness, together being one of our school HEART values.  Our children learn that we are all equal, and all equally as important.  We teach our children the significance of being a responsible citizen, locally, nationally and internationally.   We enjoy taking our children into the community as much as possible and we also enjoy inviting members of our community to visit us and share our learning.

This sign, which welcomes children and families into the school every morning, was created by all of the children as part of our Vision and Values Day. The first one was created in September 2021 as we launched the vision for the school. Each year, it is updated in collaboration with staff, pupils, Alan Doe, the school Governors and members of the Pennington Community. The sign is photographed here with the school council and also in The Lymington Times after our 'Good' Ofsted rating in 2022.

Supporting the Community



Anchor Church is part of the Anglican Mission in England (AMiE) who meet on a Sunday morning at Pennington Infant School. Services start at 10am, and last for about an hour, with everyone welcome. They listen to engaging Bible preaching, pray and sing.

Tots and Tinies

Tots & Tinies is a friendly and welcoming group for 0-4s and their grown-ups.  They meet on Thursdays 9-30 – 11-00am in the Den. This is the building adjacent to Pennington Infant School, located on our school grounds.  Working in partnership with the school, they aim to provide supportive, fun packed sessions that provide early learning experiences and help families make links within the community.

The New Forest Show

During the summer holidays, Pennington Infants were still very busy being part of the local community.  Once again, Mrs Davies was working very hard as Art Leader, along with one of our Governor, Helen Talbot.  Before the school holidays, the children across the school created some beautiful pieces of art which were then displayed at The New Forest Show.  The school received a special rosette for the second year in a row in recognition of the achievement of our children. The art work and rosette are displayed in our entrance hall, so please feel free to pop in and have a look!   

This is the second year in a row that we have entered and successfully won a rosette!
