Our Vision and Ethos
 
A Community Empowered, Inspired and Aspirational. At Pensans all children are recognised and valued as individuals with unlimited potential. We will work together with parents and the community to achieve the best outcomes for our children so that they become confident ambassadors for the school and positive members of our community who act with integrity for the good of all.
 
Aims
All children and adults are safe.
 
Our school is an inspiring place where all children love to learn.
 
All children discover their talents and interests and these are nurtured to benefit themselves and others.
 
We work together to create an open, welcoming school that is at the centre of the community.
 
We have high expectations of children and staff.
 
Values
We show respect for ourselves, for others and for our environment.
 
We treat everyone equally with consideration and courtesy. We are fully committed to our learning and teaching.
 
We take a pride in our school; contribute positively to the best of our abilities, and we are honest, open and fair in our dealings with one another.
 
                                                                       - Angela Clay Head Teacher

Remote learning will be available when:

  • Individual children are in isolation due to members of their family being tested and awaiting results
  • When whole bubbles are in isolation due to their being a positive case.
  • If instructed by Public Health England, to close the whole school.

None of these situations are ideal, as the best place for children to have access to the National curriculum is in school, with the required resources, with adults who have chosen their career and have had the necessary training!

Although children learn many things at home, no one is expecting parents/carers to take on the teaching role as it would be done in the classroom, especially when juggling their own family circumstances which may or may not, be conducive to supporting children with the National curriculum. Any support which therefore can be given, is valued and appreciated.

No family must feel any pressure during these periods away from school as all family circumstances differ tremendously. However, we have a responsibility to provide learning opportunities for the children. We would hope that in any of these situations, learning at home would not be for more than 2 weeks – 10 school days.

As you know we are using online platforms SeeSaw and Tapestry for daily teaching and Learning as well as REAL Project Learning. Many children are already accessing home learning on Wednesday afternoons and if your child remains with us on Wednesdays they are doing exactly the same activities in school so all children will be familiar with accessing the online earning.

We also are aware that if multiple bubbles are not able to come into school, or if a family are isolating, access to technology is limited. There are not many options to support you in this, apart from our understanding that siblings will not all be able access as much information, or attend Zoom sessions, as you may want them to, and we can only do what we can do. The school will provide photocopied learning materials if needed.
