St Bede's Roman Catholic Primary School opened in September 1939 and it has served the local Catholic community ever since.
Since 2012, St Bede's Parish has been known as ‘All Saints Parish’ and incorporates the Parish of St Joseph's, Benwell, since the close of St Joseph’s Church.
At the heart of our school is our Mission Statement, ‘As one, we learn together. Play together. Pray together, As one.’ By this we mean that we acknowledge that every child in our community is a unique gift from God and together as a school and home family we will work ‘as one’, in all aspects, to help everyone to aspire to be the best that they can be!
As a school we offer every child a broad, balanced, differentiated and enriched curriculum and aim to not only develop academic potential but also help children to realise their all-round potential and broaden their horizons, creating a love of learning.
As a Catholic school, we feel that the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils is a major strength of our school. It underpins their education and establishes a caring, orderly and self-disciplined learning community. We seek to encourage the children to give and expect to receive respect, encouraging the children to work together and to willingly take on responsibility. They learn to share and value the achievement of others. The moral development of our children flows from a firm spiritual base.
We welcome applications from all families, regardless of faith.
We see every child as a unique individual and the school works to achieve a genuine family atmosphere, where all members care for, love and respect each other. The children have many different needs, physical, emotional, spiritual and academic and the school works towards supporting the children through all their needs. The school view parents, as partners in the education process and close liaison between home and school is encouraged. The teaching staff is in loco-parentis and exercises the care of a reasonable parent at all times.

Thanks @MetroRadioNews for the shout out this morning. The wellbeing of our whole school community has been our priority from the start! This morning's message certainly boosted ours. Thank you.
Today is our ‘Wellbeing Day’. We decided that as a school community it is important to take a step back and reflect on the tricky situation everyone is in. It is a day to take time to reflect, relax, unwind and express yourself.
How is your week going? This week is Children’s Mental Health week. We‘ve been setting challenges each day to encourage you to ‘Express Yourself’. You can catch up with today’s challenge and see the rest on the Children’s Mental Health Week section in the website.
Please look out for a message about our school re-opening plans - the ParentPay message should be with you now. If there are any problems - contact the school office - or 0191 2743430
