Letter from Headteacher

Welcome to the Partnership of Bentley Church of England and Copdock Community Primary Schools.

This website contains useful information about our small, friendly schools. We are proud of our schools and value the strong community links we have both locally and further afield. We regularly visit our local churches, St Mary’s in Bentley and St Peter's in Copdock, for celebrations and activities which support our curriculum experiences throughout the year.

We believe that every child can be confident, successful and responsible, making appropriate choices about how they learn. In close partnership with parents, we promote the development of important key skills and values, encouraging application in all aspects of daily life. Our excellent provision in both schools has been recognised by Ofsted with a good and outstanding judgements for all aspects of school life.

The school has strengths in its development of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education and prepares pupils well for life… The values of the school are strongly promoted and pupils are encouraged to ‘shine a light’ and help others as much as possible.

Our federation has enabled us to work closely to improve provision for our children in both schools. With one Head Teacher, responsible for leading two small schools, we have promoted the sharing of resources and experiences, developed joint initiatives, trips and sports events and supported each other in our learning journeys.  

All leaders work effectively as a team across the federation. This has enhanced the expertise, knowledge and effectiveness of staff to ensure continuous improvement and the best possible outcomes for pupils.
