Dear Visitors,

Welcome to Benington Primary School website.  I hope you find all the information you require.  If you would like to find out more please get in touch using the contact details above.

Benington Primary School is located in the small, picturesque village of Benington in Hertfordshire. We have 93 children who come from within the village, and from surrounding villages and nearby Stevenage. We are a key part of the village community and our aim is to provide our children with excellence in their education in a caring, family environment within this rural setting. The school is split into 4 classes; Acorn, Willow  Beech & Oak.  

Acorn Class Willow Class Beech Class Oak Class
Reception Years 1 and 2 Years 3 and 4 Years 5 and 6

We are a small, caring school where all pupils are valued, nurtured and encouraged to achieve to their full potential.  Children are given the opportunity to develop their skills and talents through our exciting and creative curriculum and our most able pupils achieve to the highest levels.

Vulnerable pupils are supported through our programme of nurture and counselling and consequently make outstanding progress. Effort in all areas of the curriculum and for all children, is rewarded and self-esteem and self-worth are raised. Our school is an exciting and stimulating place to learn, where all talents are nurtured and all achievements celebrated

Links with parents are established early through a programme of pre-school to school readiness. All learning is seen as a partnership between pupils, school and respect for all, by all, is of the greatest importance.

At the heart of all we do is our school mission –“Inspiring pupils to reach their full potential in our Christian family through trust, respect and care for all”.  In order to reach this, we have a dedicated and determined staff team who have consistent high expectations of all children in all aspects of school life. We fully understand the importance of positive home-school partnerships and we are committed to working with you to ensure your child achieves their full potential.

Our Christian Values-led education underpins everything we do at Benington School. Each half term we focus on one value in depth and we look at how they affect our everyday lives and build our characters.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  I hope you feel enthused to visit and experience for yourself the caring and exciting environment which every child enjoys at Benington Primary School.
