Welcome to Benarty Primary School website.

At Benarty Primary School we work in partnership with our children,  families , staff and the wider community to create a secure and happy environment which provides the highest possible standard of education to meet the needs of all.

Our school values were agreed through consultation with the whole school community to represent what is most important for us here at Benarty.  At Benarty P.S. we ASPIRE in all we do and say. By showing these values in our school, we are creating a positive  ethos and culture for children to learn and thrive.

Benarty Primary offers spacious and well laid out classrooms for the children. We offer our children a safe, secure and caring environment in which to be successful and fulfil their learning ambitions. We also want to ensure that all of the children are empowered to maximise their potential.

We are always happy to discuss any aspects of the work going on in school. We are confident that we respond to all families in a timely and efficient manner. This is recognised and appreciated by our families.
