Welcome to St Benet’s Nursery and Primary School Website.

Here at St Benet’s we pride ourselves on being a school family where we grow in love together and nurture each other throughout our school years and beyond.
Unfortunately, this term has started with our third national lockdown. As a school we continue to be open for the face to face teaching of vulnerable children and the families of critical workers. All children working from home are accessing their blended education via Padlet, our remote learning platform, daily live Zoom lessons and/or hard copy learning packs.  Since this lockdown began on Tuesday 5th January 2021 we have maintained 100% contact with all families working with us remotely. Whether we are working at home or at school with our children and families we continue to enjoy celebrating our St Benet’s school family with our daily tweets on our @St_Benets Twitter account.


Rigorous Covid 19 procedures still remain in place and we have maintained staggered entrance, exit (including the one way system), breaks and lunchtimes.

We had a Health & Safety Executive (HSE) COVID spot check inspection on 12th October 2020.  Our risk assessments and safety measures were monitored.  The inspector was impressed with all he saw and said we had ‘no issues’.  Thanks to staff, children, families and governors for their support and hard work.  


Remember we are here to help and we WILL - get through these challenges together - in these most uncertain of times.
