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 old parish of St Joseph's, Benwell.
St Bede's offers children an excellent education in a caring and ordered environment.
At the heart of our school is our Mission Statement "As one, we learn together, play together. Pray together, As one"
Every child in our school community is a unique gift from God and will be respected as such. Working alongside parents we strive to build upon and develop a wealth of experience and skills in the hope of creating a caring and stimulating environment which lays the foundations of each and every child's education.
As a school we want to offer every child a broad, balanced, differentiated and enriched curriculum. When children leave St Bede's School. we would want them to have experienced a high quality education, which has broadened their horizons, developed their all round potential and given them the opportunity to recognise that learning is a pleasurable life long process.
As one, we learn together, play together, pray together, As one.
Mr Michael Scurr
As a Catholic school, we feel that the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils is a major strength of our school. It underpins the education of our pupils 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 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.
