Ethos, Vision and Values
Pennyman Primary is part of Tees Valley Education, a trust dedicated to creating outstanding academies for local communities. Working with our partner academies within Tees Valley Education, we strive to ensure that we offer an inspiring and memorable journey through Primary, which challenges pupils to be the best that they can be.
As a mainstream academy with a specialist designated unit provision, Pennyman is a fully inclusive and exciting learning community. Unlocking each child’s unique potential is at the heart of learning, which is reflected in our academy Motto ‘Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day’.
We are incredibly proud of the family atmosphere within our academy, where the highest expectations of social awareness and understanding, and academic progress are a non-negotiable. We aim to ensure that all children are confident, tolerant and resilient through a broad and balanced curriculum that provides challenge, excitement and enjoyment. We encourage our children to take risks, learn from mistakes and work collaboratively and independently, promoting high levels of self-esteem through a wide variety of holistic experiences.
Pennyman has a hardworking, dedicated and talented staff who are such a valuable asset to the academy community. Our commitment to their training and development is central to school improvement.
Our motto underpins the vision and our Pennyman values, ‘Ready, Respectful, Safe’, shared by parents, pupils and staff. Working together in this positive culture allows our children the best opportunity to be happy and successful individuals and recognise the contribution they can make to the academy, trust, and wider community as they move through life. We are incredibly proud of our learning community and the dedication and passion every member of this community represents.
