Welcome from the Head Teacher

A very warm welcome to the Benedict Academy website!

Welcome to Benedict Academy, where we support children to be the best that they can be! I am incredibly proud to be the Head Teacher of this inclusive, diverse and welcoming academy, where we prioritise working hard, being kind and courteous, and showing self-control and gratitude. We know that Benedict pupils are the future of the community. Therefore, everything that we do at our academy strives to ensure that each child is successful; better placed to make knowledge-informed decisions about their future, and that of the world.

Our children and staff fully embrace the PUPAC values of positivity, urgency, passion, aspiration and commitment, which will not only serve them well now but through every stage of their lives.

Parents say, "We have seen first hand the level of care and consideration shown towards the children. The school's deliberateness towards levelling the playing field speaks to our values around social justice, inclusion and diversity."

We hope that this website gives you the information that you need and an insight into the thinking and work that has gone into all areas of the curriculum, and into all aspects of our provision, to ensure that the children get the very best possible start to their education.

If your child will soon be joining us for the first time, we welcome you as parents and carers, and thank you for entrusting your child to us. We look forward to working with you, and supporting your child to thrive!

If you are considering this school for your child, we'll be delighted to make an appointment for you to visit and learn more about the school.
