We are a friendly, welcoming and caring school serving the community of Cowplain and Waterlooville.  We believe in providing our children with a rich and varied educational experience that ignites their thirst of knowledge, enables them to grow into confident and caring citizens and provides them with the life skills they will need for the future.

We are ambitious for all the children at our school and, as a team, do ‘whatever it takes’ to help our children achieve.  We recognise the importance of reading, writing and calculating numbers but also value personal and social skills which support children in being independent and able to make a positive contribution to their community.

We recognise the importance of establishing positive relationships with our parent community so together we can provide the very best for our children.  As such, we welcome parental views throughout the year at regular community events.

Through our shared vision children are taught to be:

Giving Citizens
Resilient Learners
Original Thinkers
Wise Workers

Everyone in our team ‘GROWS’ at every opportunity.

Come and visit our lovely school and discover what Padnell has to offer your child.  We look forward to welcoming you into our school family.
