We are always looking for Parents, Grandparents and Friends to come and support us with our events and join our very active support team.
If you are a parent, carer, grandparent or part of the Pennington community and would like to help the school then please let the school office know.
We always welcome support, from helping with a cake sale, disco or school trip, to reading with the children or helping with the garden area. Please get in touch via the School office.
The PTA are currently raising funds for a sensory garden and we would love you to be involved - if you can help with fundrasing ideas, community grants or have gardening and landscaping skills we would love to hear from you.
With this in mind, we have set up an Amazon Wish List and would like to ask parents, families and the wider community if they would purchase a book from the list, which would then be sent to school for our school library.
The link to the book list is: https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/WW5FD90LNZI5?ref_=wl_share
Please spread the word and share the wish list so that we can offer our children a library full of books that will inspire them and spark their imaginations.
A huge thank you again to all of you, your family and friends, who kindly bought books for the school library so far!

We have been working with Lymington Based Photographer Helen Renouf - Renouf Design - who has been and will continue to take photographs of the children at school and in various learning enviroments. These photos may be used on our web site and in our publications if you have given permission to do so.
The most recent albums from the photoshoots are available on her web site. They are securely passworded until the school office has had time to view the images and make sure that all children whose faces are shown have permission to be there. If there is any photo you wish removed please contact Helen or the school office directly (with the album & photo details)
Thank you for your support.
We collected working computers, ipads and tablets here at school for the children to extend their IT experiences, during the Covid pandemic - we were aware that not every family in our school community have access to these at home, and we are aimied to build a bank of resources through fundraising and donations to enable all children to have access where they are struggling.
Matt and Ellie from Lymington Computer Repairs, kindly offered to help get any donated computers up and working for the children to use, within the first week of our appeal they were able to repurpose 24 laptops for us to utilise for families in need.
Matt can be contacted directly via Lymington Computer Repairs or his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/LymingtonComputerRepairs
We have helped out families within our school community and are continuing to do so.
If you attend a different local school - we are now signposting schools and families to the Lymington Community Centre whom with support of Lymington Rotary are assisting lots of families in need in the local area.
