Vision and Values


Every child matters to us and our pupils are at the heart of everything we do. We want them to do their very best. We set high standards in all aspects of school life; in behaviour, in uniform, in completing homework, in caring for others. We believe that children learn better in an environment where the rules are clear and fair, and we believe in working together with our families to foster this.

In partnership with families, we want to nurture self-belief, encouraging all to become successful, able and responsible citizens of the school, local and global community. A school where staff focus upon providing the highest possible standards of education and upon enthusing pupils with a love of learning, we inspire confidence for children to develop curiosity, ask questions, to celebrate and make good choices.

We pride ourselves on our inclusive education and the positive attitudes towards inclusion that our pupils and parents have. We have high expectations of all of our children and expect them to achieve as well as they can. Through creative, broad and balanced experiences we inspire confidence and celebrate the uniqueness and successes of all our children. Our inclusive school community is underpinned by our values, alongside a culture of mutual respect, to ensure the happiness and personal growth of each individual.


At Bentley West we are supportive through teamwork and by helping each other, thoughtful through kindness and respect for everyone, ambitious by having high expectations of ourselves and always trying our best and resilient by never giving up, even when faced with difficult challenges.

We are shining stars!

The values we celebrate and promote in school shape the whole of our children’s lives.
