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.

 Mrs. J. Burford
