Bentfield Primary caters for 240 pupils from Reception to Year 6, with additional spaces in our Nursery. We have 26 places for pupils who, throughout the academic year, turn three years of age, and a further 26 places for those who turn four years of age. We also receive enhanced funding for 15 children with complex health, physical, developmental and lifelong learning needs. These pupils are taught within the mainstream classes alongside their peers. As a consequence of our fully inclusive nature the pupils at our school have an excellent awareness of the diversity of physical, emotional and educational needs. They value this unique quality of the school and, consequently, develop a considerate, caring and respectful attitude towards each other.
While it is our priority that the education our pupils receive here with us will enable them to achieve their academic potential and progress confidently into the next phase of their education, it is also part of our vision that all our children are filled with positive experiences, that they are aware of the endless possibilities that await them and that they are nurtured in order to develop within them a confidence to embrace whatever comes their way. Underpinning the above is our relentless commitment to ensuring that the children of Bentfield Primary School possess the values that enable them to live well in society and that they are prepared to deal effectively with the challenges that the modern world presents. All of the staff share this vision and recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs. They work tirelessly to provide a varied and engaging curriculum and a positive school experience. The classrooms are always a hive of purposeful activity and we have put in place a wide range of additional learning experiences before, during and after the school day.
