St Benedict’s Virtual Pilgrimage:

St Benedict’s walks the Camino de Compostela 2020!!!

As part of this year’s St Benedict’s feast day celebrations, St Benedict’s is virtually and collectively walking the famous walk of pilgrimage the Camino de Compostela over the course of the week building up to St Benedict’s feast day on the 11th July. Staff and students will walk, hop, run, scoot or cycle their kilometres at home and we aim to amass the full 764km by our feast day. We invite families to join in too!
We are raising much needed funds for the Arden Food bank and for the St Benedict’s School fund. The St Benedict’s fund will be used in various ways to support our students cope with the ongoing effects of the global pandemic. 
Please support us by sponsoring the school as a collective or individual students! (Please if you are a student ensure you have parental permission first!) Thank you in advance for all your support!  
Happy St Benedict’s Day!

On behalf of the governors, staff and pupils, may I welcome you to St Benedict’s Catholic School.
I am fortunate and privileged to be the new headteacher here at St Benedict’s; it is an outstanding school with a staff who work tirelessly to ensure that the pupils are safe, cared for, well-taught and above all happy. As a Catholic school, we are committed to our Gospel Values, which are evident in all we do, to achieve both academic and pastoral excellence.
We blend traditional values with forward thinking education to ensure that each child is well-prepared for their future journey, wherever it may take them.
It is fitting that we are part of the ‘Holy Family Catholic MAC’ as our school is regularly described as a ‘family’. It permeates every aspect of our work here at St Benedict’s and our partner primaries. I hope that you enjoy being part of our family.

Weekly Prayer

Lord God, You came to give honour to the least, those forgotten, overlooked and misjudged.

You came to give first place to the last, those left behind, misunderstood and undervalued.

You came to give a warm welcome to the lost, those who are orphaned, abandoned and destitute.

Help us to be your ears to listen to their cries. Help us to be your voice speaking out love and acceptance.

Help us to be your feet walking beside those in need. Help us to be your hands to clothe, feed and shelter them.

You came for the least, the lost and last of this world.

Lord, hear our prayer.
