  • Manage day to day responsibility for the operation of SEN policy

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.
