Jane Bennett leads Flax Bourton Primary school as Headteacher and works closely with Leanne Gregory, the school's Deputy Headteacher.

The school is led by an experienced and passionate headteacher whose positivity permeates the whole school. Staff say that, ‘the caring starts at the top.’

In line with their vision, leaders change lives for the better, basing all their decisions on what is best for pupils and staff.  (SIAMS inspection, Dec 2022)

At Flax the whole team is passionate about learning and providing personalised opportunities for individuals to flourish and grow.  As an established staff team we bring a considerable range of experience and expertise. We share the same values and philosophy on learning, whilst offering individual flair and diverse skills to compliment the team.

The years that children spend in primary school are vitally important.  They provide the foundation for the children’s future education and influence their attitudes to life-long learning.

Through our School Motto and Vision we will all be 'Aiming High, Respecting Others and Having Fun as we are Growing Together towards Life in all its fullness.' 

To achieve our aims, we will:

  • provide a safe, stimulating, caring environment for learning and play;
  • provide pupils with a balanced education covering the National Curriculum;
  • motivate pupils to achieve high standards in everything they do;
  • involve the parents in decisions on their child’s education.

Our pupils are encouraged:

  • to reach their full potential in all areas of the curriculum;
  • to accept personal responsibility and to have respect for themselves and others;
  • to involve themselves fully in school life;
  • to enjoy their time at school.
