Welcome to Penruddock Primary School.


We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.


At Penruddock we appreciate the importance of your child’s formative years at school and strive to create a setting that is  warm, welcoming and supportive whilst challenging children to become independent life-long learners. Our school vision is:


A caring community where every child is nurtured and valued,

empowered and inspired to achieve.


- a philosophy which permeates throughout all areas of school life.


Penruddock Primary School offers the best of both worlds—a caring and supportive atmosphere coupled with high standards of education. As a small school teachers, pupils and their families form excellent positive relationships, working in partnership to learn together. Smaller class sizes further strengthen the relationship between teacher and pupil and enable our skilled and dedicated staff to help children make the best possible progress. Alongside, an innovative and creative approach to the curriculum allows children to make links between subjects and with the wider world, it is no surprise that Ofsted highlighted these strengths in 2012:
