At RAF Benson Community Primary School we are dedicated to ensuring that all of our children, through happy and successful learning and quality teaching, strive for the highest possible standards in a stable environment where everyone feels, and is, valued.
We aim to engage and motivate our children in exceptional learning experiences, forming a curriculum that will equip them with the knowledge and skills to achieve their highest potential wherever they are.
In close partnership with all members of our Service and other communities we shall endeavour to realise the aspirations of the children and family within our unique and inspirational setting. We will provide them with all the opportunities to participate in every aspect of school life and prepare our children to be honest, respectful, responsible and diligent global citizens of the future.

We are firmly committed to the principles of inclusion, enabling all children to learn to the best of their abilities regardless of gender, race, faith, disability, colour, nationality or ethnic/national origin.
We are also committed to ensure that we have a values-based approach to all that we do creating a strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement and develops life-long social skills. Included in this is the British values were we teach children more about life in modern Britain and how to become responsible global citizens.
