"Be the best we can be"
Long Bennington Church of England Academy is an inclusive and welcoming community. We aim to make learning fun, exciting and relevant in order to create happy, enquiring and independent children. Through our curriculum and teaching we will develop confident, responsible and resilient citizens who are able to make a positive contribution to their communities and the wider world. We value and celebrate each member of our school community’s uniqueness and individuality in the eyes of God, by providing a wide range of opportunities we aim to allow all children and adults to fulfil their potential and express their own God given talents.
We are proud to be a Church of England Academy.
Our school runs as a family, with all of us being our brother's keeper.
Our Christian values that we share with each other are also human values that we feel all of our school community should follow.
‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Matthew 22: 39
We care about others showing gentleness, forgiveness and honesty in all our relationships.
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them” Matthew 7:12
We respect others from all cultures and religions. We learn about others to allow our respect to grow.
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians” 6: 9-10
Understanding that we have a personal responsibility to serve our community for the good of others rather than for our own self-interest.
