Welcome to St Benet’s Nursery and Primary School Website.
Thank you so much for visiting our website. We would like to extend a very warm welcome to you.
We are very blessed and proud to lead our vibrant school family of St Benet’s, where we grow in love together and nurture each other throughout our school years and beyond.
We have had a great time together this Autumn Term 2023 and are looking forward to the Spring Term 2024.
Our opening and exiting times:
We open school at each gate (listed below) from 8.40am to 8.50am for Reception to Year 6
Junior children (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6) will enter via the main school gate
Our Parish Priest is Father David Russell and he extends a warm welcome to all in our parish and school community. We thoroughly enjoy working together with our families, parishioners and colleagues. We are working in partnership with Father David to deliver our Year 4 children’s First Holy Communion Programme.
At St Benet’s RC VA Primary School and Nursery, we believe that our children will learn and reach their full potential, if they are developed in our Catholic school, in a happy and nurturing environment. We continue to be an ‘Outstanding Catholic School’; this was awarded to us for the second time in October 2019 after our Diocesan School Inspection.
In addition to our hard-working team of staff, we are very lucky to have such supportive parents and carers who want the best for their children.
Our governors are an extremely caring, supportive and challenging group, who work hard for the development of our school.
We will continue to add to our site regularly and carry on improving it.
Please remember to follow us on Twitter (X) on - @St_Benets for daily (sometimes hourly!) updates.
