At Penoweth School we uphold and teach pupils about British Values which are defined as:


Rule of Law

Individual Liberty

Mutual Respect

Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs



Democracy is an important value at our school. Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through the School Council, class discussions and Pupil Focus Groups. The elections of members are based on pupil votes and are held at the beginning of each year.

As a School Council, we are working together to make Pennoweth an even more productive learning environment. In order to do this, we share our thoughts and ideas on how to make the most of our learning opportunities. Children are involved in deciding what topics they choose to study, help decide upon playground developments and welcoming visitors to the school.

School Council are organising a disco for Friday 31st January. KS1 and reception is from 3.30-4.15 and tickets cost £1.50. Children will be able to get changed in their classrooms before the end of the day and head straight down to the hall. KS2 is from 4.30-5.30 and tickets are £2.00. All tickets will be sold in the week leading up to the disco.
Thank you to everyone for your support with children in need. We have raised an amazing £361.65. That is £141 more than last year! Well done everyone!
Children in Need.
Friday 15th November is Children in Need and we have decided to raise some money for a good cause. It will be a non-school uniform day, where you can wear something spotty and bring in a donation of your choice. At break time, there will be a cake sale in the hall so please get baking or buy some cakes to sell! There will also be a guess the name of the teddy and a Pudsey drawing competition. For the drawing competition you can bring in your entries on the day and we will pick a winner from KS1 and KS2. Everything will be 50p. We hope we will raise as much money as possible!
