A message from the Headteacher - Ms Thackaberry
As the summer holidays draw to a close, all the staff at Penn Fields School are looking forward to welcoming your child back over the next few weeks and we thank you once again for continuing to support the school during this ongoing challenging time and thank you all for continuing to keep your child safe whilst at home.
I wanted to share with you the control measures put in place for when your child returns to Penn Fields and the changes that have been made. I would advise where possible, you share this information with your child along with the supporting social story.
Head Teacher Message
Welcome To Penn Fields School
I am honoured to be the Head Teacher at such an inspirational school, where every day I am inspired by our students, parents and staff who continue to demonstrate strength and resilience within everyday life.
We are committed to promoting an inclusive curriculum, high expectations for all and building a positive link with parents/careers of those children we are lucky enough to educate.
Penn Fields educates 174 students from Early Years to Post 16, with a range of needs that are supported through the day to day school experience as well as specialist interventions from the Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) working alongside students and their parents/careers. MDT includes: School Nurse, Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, CAMH’s clinician, Counselling and Play Therapists. All professionals meet regularly to ensure a joined up approach with each student they work with.
At Penn Fields all students are encouraged to strive to be the best at what they do, whilst trying as hard as they can within all elements of Penn Fields school life. Students leave Penn Fields with the skills needed to become a positive member of their community and to contribute to society.
We believe that every moment is a learning opportunity and that every moment matters.
Please take some time to look around our website to source any additional information, or feel free to contact us for more information or to arrange a visit.
The whole Penn Fields family look forward to welcoming you to our school.
