Welcome to St Benedict's Roman Catholic Primary School




St Benedict’s School Closure

Effective from  Monday 30th March 2020

Dear Parents

I have been in daily communication with the Local Authority and the leadership team at Saint Margaret Clitherow Academy and we have come to the decision, due to the Coronavirus epidemic, to close the school for the foreseeable future.

The overriding factors in this were the health and safety of all our children, staff and indeed our wider community. I am immensely grateful to you for taking the necessary and sometimes difficult precautions required when finding alternative solutions to your childcare.

School will only reopen when:

  • We have appropriate demand from parents who are classed as Key Workers and are unable to find other ways of looking after their children during school opening times.
  • The government informs schools to begin re-opening a normal.


If you need to speak to anyone at St Benedict’s then you can:

  • Telephone St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School on 01751  473102 and ask to speak to a member of staff there who will deal with your query.
  • E-mail either the school at  or  Your emails will be responded to within 24 hours.
  • Telephone St Benedict’s school on 01439 788340 and leave an answer phone message. There will be people in the school intermittently over the course of the week.


In the meantime, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Take care and stay safe

Mr Eddy







 Welcome to our school website.  We are proud to enable to you find out all about our school. 



Welcome to St Benedict’s RC Primary

I am extremely proud to be part of the St Benedict’s family, working alongside a  dedicated and committed staff and governing body.  We will endeavour to build on the many successes of our school and look forward to leading St Benedict’s into a new and exciting era.

St Benedict’s is a caring and friendly school which has the Gospel values at its core.  The Catholic ethos is palpable throughout the school as Christ is at the centre of everything we do.  That is why our mission statement is woven into every aspect of school life:

“We grow in faith and love.”

We are committed to promoting the strong relationship between home, school and Parish as we feel that this partnership is the key to producing the best possible Catholic education for your child.  We work hard using our talents for the good of other people and to achieve our best. In our school community, we show respect to every person. Together with our families, our parish and our local community we strive to create a safe, happy school and become confident, caring citizens.

It is a privilege to be entrusted with your child’s education and at St Benedict’s every pupil is precious to us.  We know that each child is unique and special and therefore we ensure that our curriculum meets the needs of all our children and is carefully matched to their differing abilities.

We have high expectations of all our pupils both academically and in terms of behaviour.  Our aim is to inspire and motivate our children to unlock their full potential.  We encourage our pupils to think critically so that they view challenges as opportunities to learn.

The staff work hard to provide a stimulating environment and to enable the children to fulfil their potential.  We recognise that as parents you are your child’s first educators and we encourage you to share in the life of the school, to help to provide a happy, caring atmosphere in which the children will feel secure and nurtured.  It is important that mutual understanding and trust should be the basis of our shared responsibility.

Mr Eddy
