Bentley Church of England VC Primary and Copdock Primary Schools are part of a federation, where they share a Headteacher, Mrs J Austin and have one Governing Body. Our schools plan many activities jointly but we have separate finances to support our individual priorities.  We aim to share good practice and resources across the two schools as we provide the children with a creative approach to their learning.

At Bentley and Copdock Primary Schools, we promote high aspirations for every child, cultivating a love of learning within a friendly, supportive and challenging school environment.

As small schools we have the privilege of getting to know each pupil as an individual, enabling us to guide and support them throughout their learning journey resulting in high levels of personal achievement.

Working in Partnership since 2010, our schools share a range of expertise, re­sources and experiences, enhancing provision and opportunities for both staff and pupils.

Our Christian Ethos

Bentley is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School and has close links with the local church of St Mary's. As a church school we seek to encourage the spiritual, social, moral and cultural development of the school family by embedding Christian values into the ethos of every day school life.
