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 610 pupils across 25 classes for children from Nursery to Year 6.We are proud to be a fully inclusive school and also have four Local Authority Specialist Resource bases. 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 and Well Being Officer who develop strong links with our families and pupils, undertake home visits, offer a wide range of fun family learning opportunities and provide specialist support. See the Family Information section for more details.
We enjoy sharing our practice with other schools and deliver leadership training on behalf of the Central South Consortium, the ASPIRE programme for Newly Qualified Teachers across five local authorities and we are a Lead Partner School for Cardiff Metropolitan University. We 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, pond area and astro turf. We provide over 20 extra curricular clubs for our pupils including a Saturday morning forest school club, a wide range of sporting clubs which also involve fixtures against other schools and lots of musical and creative opportunities such as choir, photography, technical drawing and French.
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.
Mr A. Raymond
