About the employer

Welcome to Bengeo Primary School. We are a friendly, caring school for children aged between three and eleven with just over 450 children on roll. We are lucky to enjoy a large site with excellent facilities including a large playing field, trim trails, well-resourced classrooms, two halls, a dining room, a pastoral room, a library and a forest school. We believe that every child is exceptional and has their own unique set of talents and our aim is to nurture and develop those talents while the child is at school and in readiness for their future. We want our children to be empowered and to have a voice, and to that end the children have the opportunity to be part of school council, a pupil voice group or to represent their classes as ambassadors. We are a hard working team of staff who aim to nurture and develop our children to be successful and happy. We believe that children learn best when they are in an environment which encourages exploration, cooperation, curiosity, creativity, and independence. We aim to provide the greatest possible education to enable your child to achieve their very best at school within a safe and caring environment. We are an inclusive school and work hard to ensure that the diversity in our world is reflected in the curriculum the children learn from. We want our children to see themselves reflected in their learning, but also to develop empathy and respect for others. We are a reading school, so prioritise reading as a vital part of our learning throughout the school. We encourage parents to be role models for reading and to work with us to develop a passion for reading in the children. Every classroom has a well-stocked and well organised reading corner, and we are developing a new library. We pride ourselves in knowing all of our children and their families well, and because we know that parents are the most important people in a child’s life we endeavour to develop positive relationships with families so that everyone involved is striving for the best for each child. We hope that we will have a long and happy association with you. We are very proud of our school and hope that you will come to feel the same way too.
