Welcome to Pensford Primary School
My name is Lorna McIsaac and I am the Head Teacher of this small and vibrant primary school. We are particularly proud of the fact that increasingly high standards of teaching are improving the progress of our children; many of our children learn faster than their peers nationally. Our children make excellent progress from their starting points, especially if they have been at the school since the start of their reception year.
Over the past few years, changes to staff have had a major impact on our middle years’ class. We have worked tirelessly of late to develop a structure that matches the achievements of the early/later years.
Because I’ve always believed that in order for a school to be successful, it must be happy; we have nurtured a strong sense of partnership between the school and the family, and this lies at the heart of the children’s joy of learning and accomplishment. Pensford Primary is a fun place to be, and there is always something happening to enhance an already exciting curriculum. Our most recent acquisition is a PlayPod to develop our creative lunchtimes yet further.
Success is something we readily celebrate, both academic and personal. We know this helps the children develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, which in turn encourages them to continue to do their very best. We hold high aspirations for our pupils and a termly focus on each guarantees pupils have a variety opportunities to demonstrate their uniqueness.
My personal view is that schools are about change, growth, and inspiration. I take great pride in our teachers' ability and enthusiasm to inspire exploration and we all delight in the successful discoveries of our children.
On behalf of the team I would like to welcome you and your family to our school. Our work as teachers begins by building upon the numerous skills you have fostered in your child at home. We hope that both the children of this school and their parents will come to regard the years spent here to have been enjoyable, valuable, purposeful and productive.
The purpose of this website is to enlighten you about Pensford Primary School. We hope you will find the information helpful and that you come and visit us soon.
