Welcome to Great Bentley Primary School


Great Bentley Primary School is a hub of exciting learning and opportunity for all. We strongly believe in our core values: Courage, open-mindedness,nurture, endeavour and teamwork .  As a school team all members of staff and the children follow the philosophy that we are 'working together to make a difference'.  

We are OFSTED rated as Outstanding and continue to strive for excellence as a school. 

This half term we focus on the core value: Open-mindedness

Each Head of School assembly we will look at an example of courage and how it can inspire our own journey. 

Our song this half term is: 'This is me' from The Greatest Showman. We have previously learnt this song but it is very prevalent for this core value.  

We seek to foster the understanding that difference and diversity are what make us unique and to celebrate who we each are.   



We strive to be a school where children flourish and grow all of their talents, a place where children are happy and safe. We aim to constantly re shape by the needs of the pupils. Our school is a place where a possibility becomes a reality and children help shape the future for other children.

For those parents who are applying for Reception 2019 places, we will be holding open days for Parents and Carers to tour the school and ask any questions on the following days:

Thursday 8th November 2018 @ 9.30am and 2.00pm (Now full)
