Our School

Padstow School is a relatively modern school building that provides excellent facilities for our students to learn, play and develop. Our classrooms are light, airy and modern. Always brightly displayed and well resourced they provide an exceptional learning environment in which high quality learning can take place.
 
We are a single form entry school, providing one class per year group and class numbers are capped at 30. Although in most classes, numbers are lower than this, providing a high level of adult- pupil interaction.
 
As well as having high quality classroom facilities, our pupils also benefit from having additional spaces such as the ICT suite, the  music room and the media suite.
 
Our outdoor spaces include a very large playing field and tarmac playground, as well as sensory garden, an edible garden and a play forest.

Our Promotion of British Values

 

At Padstow School we provide opportunities to develop skills, attitudes and dispositions that will stand them in good stead for their future as young citizens. We promote fundamental British values for all children, and an inherent understanding of what it means to be British. The government set out their definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and these were reinforced in 2014. 

 

At Padstow School we promote the British Values through our spiritual, moral, social and cultural education which is embedded throughout our curriculum. Furthermore, these values and appropriate behaviours are modelled by staff and regularly discussed with children during school assemblies, Religious Education and PSHE.
