We thought you’d like to hear what our parents, visitors and other stakeholders say about our school.

“The school in general is more like a family than a school. The sense of togetherness and community really shines through in everything they do. They are clearly working towards creating well rounded individuals as well as fulfilling the learning criteria.”
Year 1 parent

“It was lovely to have the chance to work in your friendly school, full of open-minded children and welcoming staff. I was really impressed with the way the children were willing to try new things , be that writing in Hebrew, trying on a kippah or sampling grape juice and challah. Testimony to the work you have done.”        Lead Educator, Judaism for Schools

“Benington School has been the most amazing school for our little girl. She comes out each day happy and excited to tell us all the wonderful things that she has learnt. Her teachers are kind, supportive and always go the extra mile to make sure her needs are met.”

“It was an absolute pleasure to meet Year 6 this morning, I can only say they are a fantastic reflection of your school and I really enjoyed myself.”
Kind regards, Community Staff Nurse

“Please can you pass my thanks on to all the staff involved in the story telling evening.  The boys thoroughly enjoyed the evening and I really appreciate the extra time and effort the staff have put in and appreciate that their evening was also used up for the event.”

“Congratulations on your good Ofsted report. It is a great tribute to you and your staff in achieving this accolade. On my visits to the school the children are always polite, well behaved and appear happy.”

“It has been a privilege for both my children to attend Benington Primary School all these years and I know their last day will be an incredibly emotional time. We will always be grateful for the school’s nurturing environment and high educational standards and especially for the support [my child] has received over the last 6+ years. I cannot thank you and your staff enough and wish you all the best for the future.”
Year 6 parent

“(My son) has never been very confident with maths, and last night it was wonderful to see him so enthusiastic and confident when telling me about the work he has been doing in the class. I think these classes are doing him a great deal of good and it’s great to see the school supporting his learning in this way.”
Year 5 parent

“We are very excited for [our daughter] to join in September and have to say, of all of the schools which we have viewed, Benington absolutely blew us away.  The quiet and respectful manner of the children really shone through and the real care that the teachers have for the school and pupils seems clear for all to see.”
Reception parent

“We would like to take the time to acknowledge our gratitude for the progress, both educationally and emotionally that (our children) have made whilst at Benington School. We do believe that the ‘individual and tailored’ approach has provided them with a solid foundation for moving forward confidently.” 
Year6 parent

“I just wanted to send an email to say how proud I was of all the children that attended the inter-village sports event on Tuesday. Watching how well the children supported each other reminded me why I picked Benington school for my children.”
Year 4 parent

“We would like to thank you and all the staff for giving our boys a fantastic start to their education. You have created such a supportive environment at Benington which we will miss very much.”
