School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Bentley Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School is much smaller than the average-sized primary school.

Most pupils are White British.

The school has a formal federation with a near-by school, Copdock Primary School, and has an executive headteacher and joint governing body who lead both schools. The schools work together to share their expertise, staff and resources.

In the mornings, pupils in Year 1 and children in the early years, form one class. Another class contains pupils in Years 2 to 4. Most pupils in Years 5 and 6, travel to Copdock Primary School to be taught with the Year 5 and 6 pupils from that school. In the afternoons, children in the early years, and pupils in Years 1 and 2, are taught in one class, and pupils in Years 3, 4, 5, and 6 form the other class. Children in the early years Reception class attend full-time from the age of 4, when they join the school. The number of pupils in separate year groups varies from two to nine. The proportion of pupils supported through pupil premium funding, which is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and pupils who are looked after by the local authority, is below average, at approximately one in 10 pupils.

Approximately one in five pupils have disabilities or special educational needs, which is an above average proportion.

The school meets the current floor standards, which set out the minimum expectations for attainment and progress at the end of Year 6, in reading writing and mathematics.
