Message from the Headteacher
At Penketh South the children are exceptional - we are very proud of them and everything they do. They are polite, friendly and respectful and have a very positive attitude towards learning.
We ensure that the curriculum we teach is enjoyable, challenging and varied so that the children love coming to school, achieve their best and feel supported in everything they do.
Our school motto is, "Do your best. Be your best." as we help every child to realise that with determined effort and resilience, that they can succeed. We also expect them to be good citizens by being the best version of themselves that they can be.
Our curriculum intent statment summarises our values and ethos: -
"On the children’s journey through Penketh South, we aim to spark their curiosity and fire their enthusiasm. We want our children to take pride in themselves, their achievements and their environment. They will be taught to respectfully question, to show appreciation for the world around them and to accept and understand equality and diversity. We will provide opportunities for our children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners who have high aspirations for the future. The children will be encouraged and supported to become resilient learners who understand that it is ok to make mistakes as long as they use these experiences to help them to develop and grow. Our children will become learners for life, powerful contributors, confident individuals and responsible citizens of the future."
An important element of our curriculum is our Forest School where children spend a significant amount of their timetable in the outdoors, learning about the environment as well as developing a whole range of interpersonal and problem-solving skills and refining their use of tools.
We hope you find the information you need on our website but if you do require any further information about what we do or how we do it, please feel free to contact the School Office who will direct you to the best person to help you with your query. We are also happy to provide paper copies of any doucments you need. Please just ask the School Office staff who will do all they can to help.

It is my pleasure to inform you that I will be the Interim Headteacher at Penketh South Primary School.
As most of you know, I have been the Deputy Headteacher here for the past eight years, so I am deeply invested in the success and well-being of our children, staff, and parents. As I assume the responsibilities of Interim Headteacher, I am committed to building upon the strong foundation we have established together.
Transitions can be both challenging and exciting, and I am confident that, with the collaboration of our dedicated staff, engaged parents, and talented children, we will navigate this period smoothly. My goal is to ensure continuity in providing a nurturing and stimulating learning environment where every child can thrive.
I am excited about the journey ahead and am confident that, as a united community, we will continue to make Penketh South Primary School a place where every child can excel and shine.
Miss L Browne
