Pensford School is a co-educational primary catering for children between the ages of 4 and 11 years. Currently we have 4 mixed age classes (Year R, Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6). It is situated 6 miles south of Bristol on the A37. Our period buildings have had extensive refurbishment over the past few years and provide attractive, contemporary learning spaces. Our grounds have been redesigned and developed to create a stimulating outdoor learning environment. In June 2019, we joined The Partnership Trust, which is a multi-academy Trust.

We enjoy close links with our local community including established collaborative partnerships with other schools in the locality through which we endeavour to deliver the best outcomes for all primary age children in the Chew Valley area. The collaboration supports working with a range of professionals and building skills as well as opportunities for all staff. The children in our communities are at the very heart of everything we do within the school and the cluster.

Our vision for Pensford Primary is to be a high achieving, vibrant learning community in which children are nurtured, motivated and have outstanding expectations for themselves and others. We believe that every member of our school community has a right to achieve their potential in an atmosphere which balances challenge with support. We aim to provide a climate for learning, which engages, inspires and motivates children.
