From the 1st June we welcome back Year R and children of Key Workers.

Our new school day routine will be different to what the children are used too. Please click here to view the letter sent out via ParentMail on 26th May, detailing our new systems and procedures. It is important that you read this document before you attend school as it includes your new start and finish times.

We have been busy making adjustments and setting up new systems within and around our school building. To help familiarise the children of these changes we have made a special video for families to watch, so they’ll know what to expect when arriving on 1st June.  To view the video please click here.

We are also aware that whilst at home there may be cause to ask for support from external agencies and key staff at the school with regards to well-being and safeguarding matters.  Please click here to view an overview of agencies and contacts that may be able to help you.  Our Well-being tab on Our Parents page includes some useful strategies for supporting your child.

Home learning will continue for children in Year 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.  Home Learning packs are available to collect on Friday 29th May from the school playground.  These packs will comprise of a variety of both online tasks and paper based activities.  

As many of your children will be spending more time online, please ensure that they are reminded of the need to keep safe online.  Please click here to view Staying safe with Childline.

Our number one priority is the health, safety and well being of all learners and staff.  We will continue to follow all government guidance whilst putting the well-being of all at the forefront of any decisions made now and in the future.

Welcome to St Benedict's Catholic Primary School!


On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors I would like to warmly welcome you to our website.  I hope that your visit is informative and gives you an insight into the learning that takes place in our school and the values and vision which underpin it.

 At St. Benedict’s we are a Catholic community committed to providing a consistently safe, positive, rewarding and happy learning environment.  We have high expectations for the children in our care and aim to encourage them to learn, develop and grow into responsible, spiritual young people within a climate of respect, warmth and understanding underpinned by the Gospel values.  We are proud of the successes our children have achieved, both academically, and also in sporting and musical events.

 Our school is also a Mass Centre as we are part of St. Simon Stock Parish, Walderslade.  Mass is celebrated here every Sunday at 9 a.m.  Our Parish Priest is     Fr. Bartlomiej Dudek.  We have an excellent, committed staff who are dedicated to each and every pupil and a wonderful group of Governors.  We work in partnership with the parents who are very supportive and we have a thriving Parents Association (SBA).

  We look forward to working with you. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.
