Important Information to Share

Menu for next term - Please find attached the menu starting after half term from our Catering Provider - we start on week One
Shared learning - Friday 3rd November - please see arrangements below to ease congestion:
If you have two or more children please arrive at 2.30pm, you are invited into the hall. Please can you take one child at a time for 10 minutes each so this will give you the opportunity to talk with your child individually then send them back to class. 
If you have one child, please arrive at 2.50pm,  you will be invited into your child's classroom to spend 10 minutes looking through their learning with them. 
We will then be able to finish by 3.05pm to meet you on the playground for collection at 3.15pm. 
At this event, we are asking that younger siblings do not attend due to the physical space. If you are unable to come to the event during 2.30-3.05pm, you are welcome to come in at 3.15pm after school to look through your child's learning

Activity Week - The children had a lovely time this week, please see the website and our Facebook page for photos of what the children have been experimenting with this week

Year 6 high school applications - these need to be completed by the end of October - please refer to the letter you received previously, or Suffolk County Council website.

Shoe box appeal - items will be gratefully received until Friday 3rd November.  See link for suggested items.  Thank you!




Every week we encourage parents to support their children to learn and use new vocabulary. In school we will be exploring the origin of new words, what they mean and how to use them effectively in context. If you can encourage your child to use these words it would be really helpful!

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.
