PJS - 'Good' Ofsted Report 2024

Ofsted Report Pennington C of E Junior School

It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce that we have been awarded a ‘Good’ rating by Ofsted. Inspectors rated Pennington as ‘Good’ in all areas: The Quality of Education, Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development and Leadership and Management.


I am incredibly proud that the tireless hard work undertaken by everyone at PJS has been officially recognised and that our wonderful students now have yet another reason to be proud of our fantastic learning community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the inspection itself, especially staff, governors and our students who shone during the inspection process and continue to impress us every day.
