RE Syllabus

We follow the Suffolk Agreed Syllabus and use the units recommended by the Diocese using a scheme or work they produce called 'The Emmanuel Project'.  This covers the main World Religions as well as our main focus on Christianity.  The Suffolk Agreed Syllabus is used in both schools.  Bentley is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School (CEVC) which means more curriculum time is spent on RE, with extra prayer space days and stronger links with both churches in Bentley. 

There is an overview of the Scheme in the documents below:

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.
