St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School
The children learn in an atmosphere of love and they learn how to show and share their love. They also learn how to be resilient and self confident which enables them to love themselves as valuable members of the church and the wider world. Our children are on a journey of faith. A journey which will enable them to develop their spiritual faith as well as a deep faith in themselves and their own unique abilities.
At St. Benedict’s we aim to provide a Christian environment where God and the Gospel values are at the centre of all we do. Within this environment; understanding, respect and tolerance for all faiths and denominations is nurtured.It is our mission to encourage and provide opportunities for our children to develop their full potential spiritually, academically, socially and morally. To prepare our children to be good citizens and productive members of society.
