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 are looking forward to starting our autumn term with our children beginning Tuesday 7th September 2021. For the first couple of weeks we will we will continue to take a cautious approach. Staggered starts and exits – although times are slightly condensed (please see the table below) will still be in place. Children will continue in year group bubbles, with many of the Covid 19 procedures remaining in place e.g. alternate lunches and playtimes and one way system in school.  In the first instance we continue to ask parents/carers and or family members who drop off and collect children to wear a mask or face covering, we thank you for your continued support in this matter.

Gates are open 5 minutes prior to collection and drop off times. We will review this on return to school after the first two/three weeks in September. We continue with these measures to try to mitigate risks. In the year groups 1 to 6, younger children are allowed to enter school with the eldest sibling if that if more convenient to the family. For families dropping Reception and Nursery children off and have an older sibling these children are able to be dropped off at the same time too.
During this time, we continue to rely on our children, staff, families, governors, parishioners and friends for their hard work, help and support.
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.
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.

Yours sincerely
Denise Willis, Chair of Governors     &        Ann Blakey, Headteacher
