”a man takes a mustard seed, the smallest seed in the world and plants it in the ground. After a while it grows up and becomes the biggest of all plants. It puts out such large branches that the birds come and make their nests in its shade.”
Mark 4 vs. 31-32
Our mission, as a Church of England School, is to provide an education that gives all pupils the opportunity to develop within a happy, caring and safe environment grounded upon the values of the christian faith.
We expect our Christian school family to be ready to learn, respectful to all and safe. The children all know that they wish each other to be ready, respectful and safe. At Benhall St Mary’s, everything we do is aimed at developing our children as kind and resilient global citizens who will make a positive impact on the world.
