Vision and values

Together We Can Make a Difference!


The governing body of Bentley Church of England VC and Copdock Primary Schools share a vision for the children of our schools… to become confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens.

Within our partnership, the Governing Body aims to develop and enhance our provision by:

Identifying the strength and characteristics of our schools, sharing and developing good practice from which we may all learn and looking to support further developments and opportunities for those within our school communities.

Exploring how to maintain and develop the ethos within our schools ensuring the focus is based on the spiritual and personal wellbeing of the pupils and all those who contribute to the learning that takes place.

Identifying areas of the curriculum that could be enhanced through joint curriculum work.

Identifying opportunities to exchange and share good work practices to ensure quality learning opportunities for the children.

Building on existing provisions within each school whilst developing the partnership between schools, for the educational future of the pupils and their families, the professional development of staff and to ensure inclusion and commitment of the local community.

Working together to support and share issues and circumstances enabling staff at all levels to develop and apply their professional skills and expertise.


Our vision is for all children to be…

             confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens

      … who are well equipped for future life, whatever that may hold.

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.
