‘Lending’ of Dinner Money to Pupils
Over recent years we’ve ‘lent’ pupils money if they’ve forgotten their dinner money. However, despite phone calls and letters home to parents we’ve found that this money, more often than not, remains unpaid. Having checked with other schools locally as to whether they ‘lend’ money to pupils, we’ve made the same decision as them not to lend money to pupils in future.

community links are important in Student development...
Pencoed Comprehensive School is a Community Focused School.
We believe that building relationships with our community is very important. Existing community relationships, include Friends of Pencoed Comprehensive, senior citizens, local primary schools, local businesses and organisations , as well as Pencoed Town Council . We believe that community links are important for student development through work experience, Welsh Bacc and other Learning Core community related activities. Hopefully, the community can also benefit from our involvement. We aim to build on close community relationships and initiatives already established as well as develop new links, particularly with local businesses and organisations.
Current school initiatives, either led by ourselves or in partnership with others, include the Senior Citizens Lunchtime Club, Keeping Up With Your Child Classes for parents, Pencoed Town Carnival, and the production of concerts and shows. The aim is to increase existing initiatives and develop further partnerships with the local community.
