Welcome to Pebworth First School
Children who begin their educational journey at Pebworth First School are welcomed into a small village school, which deeply cares about their academic, emotional and social development and supports all children to excel – whatever their talents and strengths. We have much smaller than average classes taught and supported by highly skilled staff with the knowledge and experience to guide our learners successfully through their early years of formal education. Our school is a family. Our children know every other pupil and staff member by name and in return staff truly get to know every single pupil, regardless of which class they work in. A more supportive and dedicated community it would be hard to find.
Pebworth First and Blackminster Middle Schools
have been working in Federation since 2012.
Our curriculum explores exciting learning projects which inspire children to delve further into new locations, time periods, species and skills. We don’t just teach history or geography or science at Pebworth, we grow and cultivate a Pebworth Historian, Geographer or Scientist; encouraging our pupils to think and act like the experts they are well on their way to becoming.
We place appropriate emphasis on key reading, writing and mathematics skills across the curriculum to ensure that all pupils have the tools to fly in the next stage of their learning through providing small group focused teaching and bespoke additional support to all children. Our unique size and organisation means we are able to give children 1:1 time, care and attention in all aspects of their learning.
Engaging with the local community
Beyond the national curriculum, we offer pupils the opportunity to engage with our wider local community and become truly global citizens who care about our planet and all the things in it – we utilise our fabulous outdoor space and the wider local area to get out and explore and open children’s eyes to the world around them. Our Pebworth family cares. About each other, about the local community and about the environment.
The arts, and especially music, are hugely important at Pebworth First School. Our children are encouraged to be creative in all that they do and have the opportunity to learn to play a variety of instruments, free of charge, during their time with us. Children perform the pieces they have learnt in a variety of local venues and celebrate their successes with each other and the general public. By the time a child leaves us in Year 5, they may well be able to play recorders, hand bells, ukuleles and a whole range of brass instruments to name but a few. Our mini musicians are taught to read music and perform in solo, group and ensemble pieces and are then able to apply these valuable skills to all that they do.
We work in close collaboration with our federation school partners at Blackminster Middle School. As a result of this effective working partnership our pupils have access to specialist PE coaches, state of the art science and technology facilities and we have shared use of the federation minibus which is invaluable for getting our children out and about. Our partnership is a close one and Ms Linda McQuone (Executive Headteacher) and I work together for the benefit of all learners across the federation, supporting them to be aspirational, respectful, community minded and to excel in all areas of the curriculum and in their wider development.
Pebworth really is a family. Our children are nurtured, valued and respected and we would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school. Please do get in touch to arrange a time to pop in, have a chat and see our community in action. We look forward to meeting you soon.
