Catholic Schools

St Benet’s Catholic Primary School

Situated adjacent to the Church – and sharing the Parish Hall – St Benet’s is a co-educational voluntary-aided school for children aged 4 to 11.

Our school has always had close links with our neighbouring school of St Edmund’s in Bungay, and in 2010, formed a Schools Federation.

The school Mission Statement says: “Our expectation is that every day FAITH is at the heart of everything we do:

Fulfil our potential
Aspire to excel
Immerse ourselves in the community
Think of others
Hold God in our hearts.”
