Welcome to Benjamin Hargreaves CE VA Primary School
On behalf of all the staff and governors we want to welcome you to Benjamin Hargreaves CE VA Primary School.
We aim to provide high quality of teaching and learning so that all children reach their full potential.
Our strong Christian ethos helps our pupils to develop in their spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.
We offer a wide range of opportunities and experiences and strive to engage and challenge all pupils in a safe and caring environment.
Staff, Governors and pupils value our close links with St Paul's Church and the wider community and great importance is placed on working with parents/carers.
We hope that you will find our website interesting and informative.
