Welcome to Penshurst CE Primary School, a small Church of England village school, which has served our community since 1864.
At Penshurst CE Primary we put people first. The well being of the school community is of paramount importance. Through our Christian ethos we care and develop every person – spiritually and academically.
As a small Church school, we are able to offer our pupils a very unique educational experience; one that enables them to be the best person they can; learning and growing with God. Our school vision is focused around the idea of ‘walking in the shoes of others’. Pupils and staff take time to think of others near to and far away from our school community. Our pupils are able to talk confidently about how this vision impacts on the school, who we are and what we believe in.
Our pupils are encouraged to develop a ‘can do’ attitude and to understand their potential is limitless. Children leave us confident and ready to face the new challenges that await them. They also have a great sense of the world around them and the part they will play in that World. Through our school Christian values of compassion, determination, courage and friendship we provide our pupils with a broad understanding of how they can be ‘Good Samaritans’ .
Pupils at Penshurst CE Primary School have access to a broad and carefully chosen curriculum. A curriculum that encourages our pupils to have a thrist for knowledge and to develop a wide range of knowledge, skills and understanding. We offer extensive curriculum enrichment, from sporting opportunities and clubs, to outdoor learning. We provide chances to work collaboratively and competitively, and our smaller size means that there are greater opportunities for pupils to represent the school.
You’ll find a range of information on our website, but if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
