Choosing the Right School

Deciding which school to send your child to is not an easy decision to make and there are many factors, unique to each family, which need to be taken into consideration.  We recommend making an appointment to come and visit Benyon Primary School so that you can get a real feel for the school and it's ethos.  We strive to provide a happy and smooth transition into school life and we pride ourselves on our partnerships with families and the wider community.
