Pencoed Primary School Working together for each and every child


Dr Suzanne Sarjeant

Welcome to the Pencoed Primary School website. At Pencoed, we are a very friendly, happy school where we make every child feel valued. We currently have 25 classes for children from Nursery to Year 6.We are proud to be a fully inclusive school and have four Local Authority Resource bases and a Visual Impaired specialist resource base. We want each and every child to achieve the very best they can and all of the staff work hard to achieve this.


We very much value the support of parents and carers and actively welcome family members into the school to support the children's learning. We have a dedicated Family Engagement Officer who will undertake home visits, provide coffee mornings and offer a wide range of fun family learning opportunities. See the parents section for more details.


The school is a Hub school for Central South Consortium which means that we offer training and support to other schools across the five Local Authorities that make up CSC. We enjoy sharing our good practice in this way, but are also keen to learn from others so we are very proactive in visiting other schools and settings to ensure we keep on developing our provision here.


Outdoor learning is a key aspect of our provision and we have our own Forest School site. In 2015 we won the Royal Forestry Societies Gold School’s Award for the outdoor provision we offer.


We welcome visits to the school – if you would like to come to have a look around or if there is anything else we can help with, please call the main school office and we will be happy to help. We want to work together for each and every child.


I hope you can find all of the information you need on this website. We will be adding to it regularly so keep checking for more information.
