A Message From the Headteacher

I feel proud to be the Headteacher of Bantock Primary School which is a warm and caring community school.

We are a large Primary School with a diverse population and have children from many different countries, speaking a variety of languages and celebrating most major world religions. This makes our school a vibrant and stimulating place.

As a team, we constantly strive to achieve the very best for you and your child to create successful and happy children. Education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our relationship with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit. You can read more about our Vision and Aims, and Ethos and Values here.

We hope that this website gives you a flavour of what our wonderful school has to offer, and you are welcome to visit to see the school in action and understand what we are all about, but if you have any questions in the meantime please contact the school office.

​I look forward to meeting you,

​Mrs H Sarai

“Bantock Primary School provides a warm welcome and a nurturing environment for its children, their families and the wider community.  Every child is viewed as an individual, their strengths celebrated and their areas for development identified to enable them to achieve and to be the best that they can be.  The school provides a stimulating learning environment, which is differentiated to support and recognise the diversity of its school community.  Staff and children care for and support one another, and it is this which makes me proud to part of the Bantock Primary School family.”

“Bantock goes beyond a school. It not only supports pupils to academically achieve but also ensures  they have an amazing experience at school. But what also stands out is they strive to support the whole Bantock community of families to thrive.  A truly positive place”

Parent, 2022

“Life revolves around three things which is love, time and family. Bantock portrayed all three before, during and after lockdown, irrespective of race, ethnicity or background. Bantock is a unified family.”

Mark Lloyd, Online Behaviours: Equilibrium Project

Bantock Primary shows a wonderful commitment to the personal development of pupils. Their well-structured, high quality Personal Development curriculum is an incredible asset. The school’s innovative approach encourages “pupil voice”, ensuring the curriculum is bespoke and flexible. Most of all there is a dedication to creating a culture of openness and wellbeing which highly values the flourishing and safety of pupils. A wonderful place!

Paul Bellamy, Wider Learning

Bantock Primary is a vibrant, welcoming, and forward thinking school, with high expectations of all of the children, as well as of those who work to support them. 

As a partner organisation working with Bantock to train Digital Ambassadors and Activity Leaders, it is heartening to see the value and emphasis that is placed on developing inquisitive, respectful and resilient pupils who are able to take on responsibilities and thrive. 

Working here feels like a real partnership, honest and refreshingly challenging, aimed at constantly providing the best for everyone involved. 


Lynda Bamber, PiXL Primary Regional Leader

It has been a pleasure to work alongside the leadership team at Bantock Primary for the last 10 years. As part of the PiXL network of over 1200 Primary schools, we frequently ask them to share their inspirational practice at National Conferences and also through direct support to other school leaders. One of the many things that makes Bantock special is that the school has a deep understanding of their school community and, with that insight, they go to great lengths to ensure that ALL children at Bantock thrive and achieve their potential.
