Ethos & Values

As part of a multi-academy trust, Penketh’s ethos and values are grounded in WPAT's guiding principle "To deliver a first-class education through partnership, innovation, school improvement and accountability" and the core values of the trust; Children First, Resilience and Pioneering.

In recognition of the unique characteristics of our school, we have identified four core values which are personal to Penketh; Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and KindnessOur Penketh Powers.

The characters were designed by our children and the powers are the skills they need to draw upon every day, whether learning in the classroom or playing with friends on the playground.
