“Our children thoroughly enjoy their time at St Benedict’s, they are thriving academically and socially. The whole school has a really lovely family and community feel to it.”
Welcome to our website.We are proud for you to find out all about our school.
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.
