Welcome to our school website. We hope it will answer all your questions and help you to understand the rich and varied experiences we offer to the children in our care.
St Benedict’s is a one-form entry primary school in the town of Handforth. We are a welcoming, inclusive family school with a strong Catholic ethos, a sense of community and a commitment to academic excellence for all children in our care.
We are very proud of our children – they are bright, energetic, kind and helpful and always strive to do their best for the love of God and others. Visitors to the school always comment on the confidence and enthusiasm with which the children greet them. Because our school is a one-form entry school, we are able to nurture each child and help them grow in confidence. Our commitment to supporting mental-health, ensures children are ready and able to learn because they feel safe and confident and we teach a number of strategies to help children to overcome anxiety or worry.
Every member of staff has the interests of the children at the heart of what they do. They work tirelessly, in partnership with supportive and engaged parents and alongside the parish of St Benedict’s, to nurture children and to ensure they receive an excellent education.
50% of our children are baptised Catholic but we support children from all backgrounds, whether they have a different faith or no faith. Children thrive in this environment and learn that respecting each other benefits us all. We want each and every child to be successful in their learning but it is also our mission to help them make a meaningful contribution to the world.
