At Bentham Community Primary School the whole school community work as a team to create a safe, happy and inspiring learning environment where all childrens’ individual needs are met in a variety of ways. Regardless of ability, gender or background, we want all children to achieve and reach their full potential.

Currently rated as Good with an Outstanding Early Years provision, Bentham Community Primary School represents an excellent opportunity for a headteacher to ‘build our future step by step”, engaging with the community, improving attainment and developing provision and finances.
