We Learn and Grow together with Jesus


I am delighted to welcome you to St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School.  Our aim is to give your child the best education possible built on the Gospel principles of Jesus Christ.

We believe that every child is unique, should be treated as an individual and have an exciting learning journey with us which both supports and challenges them spiritually, socially and academically. The school’s committed, caring and professional staff and Governors are united in aiming for excellence and ensuring that every child reaches their full potential in a welcoming environment.

We hope that by choosing our school, your child will thrive in every way taking full advantage of the many opportunities that we offer. We believe it is essential that there are strong partnerships between home and school. Children learn best when these links are in place and we fully value input from parents. We look forward to building strong relationships with all our families and seeing our children develop and grow.

We recognise that starting school is a huge milestone for you and your child and we endeavour to ensure that this is a happy and positive time for you and your family.

On behalf of the children, staff, parents and Governors I would like to thank you for taking an interest in our school and hope that you find all the information you need in our website.

Executive Headteacher
