St Benet's Catholic Primary School


On this page is information for children and families joining us in September 2020. 

We can't wait to welcome your child to our school. We recognise the current situation with regards to Covid-19 makes this an unusual and more challenging transition for both the children and you as parents,  therefore we want to do as much as we can to ensure a smooth journey as your child joins us.

We will continue to add information here over the coming weeks - including a photo book for children, a video tour of the school, guidance for you as parents in preparing children for starting school and activity ideas for the summer. All this information will also be available on Tapestry. 

We have tried to provide as much information as possible - however, if you require any more information please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office ( or Tapestry.
