Choosing a school for your child is such an important decision and we hope that by visiting us and reading about the activities and learning experiences that happen here, you will feel that Bentham Community Primary School is a caring, family community, committed to achievement and sharing in the successes of each individual in our care. We pride ourselves on our inclusive, family feeling school.

The curriculum here is lively and creative. We believe children should be allowed to experiment with, and experience, activities that inspire them to find out more. The staff work very closely together to ensure a joined up thinking approach and to ensure high standards, through quality first teaching and learning experiences across the primary years. We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning and believe that our children deserve the very best as they start their learning journey with us. We aim to enable children to recognise the positive contribution that they and others are able to make to our diverse, ever-changing society, both near and far.

We believe in working in partnership with parents, carers and members of our local community and wider communities in order to fulfil this aim. An important part of our ethos is to value the partnership we have with parents as we believe that working closely together enables your child to benefit fully from school. We hope that you are able to visit our school to see us in action and to get a real feel of what it is like to be a learner with us.
