Curriculum Guidance and Support

Our schools  recognise the importance of a flexible and reflective curriculum which is adapted to meet the needs and interests of our pupils. In enabling such a curriculum we acknowledge the importance of shared ownership between staff, children, parents and our community, encouraging active participation by all.

Our aim is to teach children how to be responsible individuals who can work and co-operate with others whilst developing knowledge and skills that will equip them for life-long learning.

Through a creative curriculum, pupils are encouraged to develop an inquiring mind, investigating and discovering new knowledge, skills and talents for themselves. Much of our learning takes place in the outdoor environment, where chil­dren are encouraged and inspired to grow in confidence, self-esteem and independ­ence. Every opportunity is taken to work in close partnership with parents and our wider community, creating real purpose to the learning opportunities and experiences we share. Wider opportunities are also available for children to participate in ECO and School Council initiatives, sports activities and a range of extra curricula clubs.



Bentley School's Christian Ethos

"Know that I am with you always," Matthew 28:20 We encourage the spiritual, social, moral and cultural development of the school family by embedding Christian values into everyday life. Our vision is for all children to be confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens who are well equipped for future life, knowing that God is with them always.
