Each term one child from each year group is awarded the Callaway Cup for progress and excellence across the curriculum. There was much excitement in assembly this week as the Callaway Cup winners were announced. It was super to watch the rest of the class show their pride in their classmate’s achievement. The pupils have all impressed the teaching team in their classes with their attitude to learning and each one of them has made a tremendous amount of progress over the term. A huge well done to all the recipients! Enjoy having your cups until next term when they will be passed to the next well deserved recipient.

Good manners are not only encouraged, but expected at Bentley and excellent manners and behaviour is often mentioned by parents, relatives and visitors who come to the school as well as when pupils are out on school visits. We want all of our children to follow the 'Sorry, Thank You, Excuse Me, Please' (S.T.E.P.) code all the time. Each term three children from each year group, who have shown superb manners over the term in many different situations as noted by all staff, are selected to receive a S.T.E.P. award. In a special assembly, in front of the whole school plus teaching staff and parents, each child is presented with a certificate and a special badge.
We are incredibly proud of our S.T.E.P. award winners this term.
Year R – Harry, Sienna, William
Year 1 – Charlie, Ivy, Lexi
Year 2 – Finley, Tabitha, Tommy
Year 3 – Charlotte, Louis, Luke
Year 4 – Annie, Mia, Nicholas
Year 5 – Archie, Charlie, Satwat
Year 6 – Bart, Harry, Maddison
Our School values of Love, Courage and Community are woven into all aspects of the school day at Bentley - in the classroom, in the playground, in the lunch hall, on the sports field, everywhere. We encourage each child to recognise how important these values are and to do their best to embody them throughout their time here and, we hope, when they move on to secondary school.
This Autumn we asked all the children in the school and all the staff members to vote for two children, a boy and a girl, who they believe typifies our values in their behaviour.
In a special assembly at the end of the Autumn Term we were delighted and very proud to announce the winners of the Value Cup:
Maddison & Milo, Year 6
At Bentley we recognise kindness in all sorts of ways and encourage the children to always consider others.
Each year we ask the children and staff to nominate a child in the school who they believe to be incredibly kind. In a special collective worship we announced Harry (Year 4) to be the winner of the Kindness Cup for Autumn 2019. Well done Harry!
