"Pupils are cared for well in this small village school.
Pupils work hard and take pride in their work. They enjoy their learning in a wide range of subjects . Pupils thrive on the many opportunities to develop their individual interests and talents.
Pupils thoroughly enjoy their time in school."
At Penruddock School it is important to us that we instil a sense of curiosity and wonder and a love of learning in all our pupils, which will continue with them throughout their entire life.
To this end we have challenged ourselves to develop a contextual curriculum which will motivate and inspire our children to achieve their best. We have a creative, cross-curricular approach to teaching and actively seek to organise our curriculum in such a way that enables children to build on prior learning through a progressive skill based approach which enables them to make connections across their learning and to develop their understanding in a practical, real-life context. Whilst English and Mathematics skills are taught in specific sessions, other areas of the curriculum are taught through exciting projects based around a common theme.
In 2022 23 and following analysis of our outcomes since the Covid pandemic we have identified the need to modify our curriculum design to ensure our children catch up with any gaps in learning that may have developed through the lockdowns. We have identified this as a priority on our School Development Plan and we are monitoring pupil outcomes closely to ensure our adaptations are relevant and current and will ensure all our learners are back on track with their learning as soon as possible.
