I am absolutely delighted to be welcoming you to Bentley Heath Primary School. I took up the headship here in January 2022 and fell in love with the school instantly; it is a privilege to work here with such wonderful staff and pupils.

Bentley Heath is a vibrant school where children really love to learn. Our school is truly inclusive and every opportunity is taken to teach pupils how to value and respect each other and develop a positive self-image and the belief that with hard work, determination and commitment anything can be achieved.

As a Church of England Primary School, we have a living Christian foundation following the teaching of Jesus, whereby we seek for everyone in our School community to be Rooted and Fruitful in Him. We live out this faith by following Jesus’ command to: “Love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12). We have six core values which are at the core of everything we do: Perseverance, Peace, Compassion, Forgiveness, Creativity and Hope.

We recognise that everyone is uniquely made in the image and likeness of God, and therefore everyone is welcome and important here. We are committed to providing a safe environment in which children and adults can flourish.

As well as developing as a unique individual, we ensure that pupils at Bentley Heath experience a rich and progressive curriculum which builds on what they know, which starts in Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Our end of Key Stage results mean that children leave Bentley Heath very well prepared for the opportunities and challenges they will face in secondary school. We have very high expectations for all of our pupils irrespective of their starting points, recognising that they will be entering a highly competitive global marketplace in unprecedented times. Our staff are dedicated and hard-working, committed to an ethos of on-going professional learning.

We are proud to be a member of the Birmingham Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust (BDMAT) which enables us to share resources, expertise and deliver quality education to make an even greater difference where it matters most.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch.
