Welcome to Benson Community School

Head Teacher Mrs Rindl

Benson is a member of the Handsworth Consortium of Schools. The school is one of the oldest in the area and has been here since the 1800s. Currently there are 11 classes based in the main school building. Our Nursery is housed in a separate purpose build building. The school is very fortunate to have a large playing field and three playgrounds. Within school we have brand new ICT suite and each classroom has an interactive whiteboard.

Our school is part of a lively, multi-ethnic community. We believe that parents are our partners. To help our partnership we provide community activities and adult education opportunities at school. Children spend only 15% of their time in school and 85% at home. Therefore, what YOU do is very important. Please keep us informed about things that are affecting your child in school and please work with us. Your views are welcome! Tell us or the Governors about your ideas!

Deputy Head

Children who are loved and encouraged, who are brought up to be polite, well disciplined, independent and able to respect themselves and others, have a good start! Tired, worried, hungry or upset children are disadvantaged.

Our school has proved to be an excellent school. We are one of the top 10 schools in the country for the progress our children make. Our very good Ofsted report can be seen at or downloaded by clicking on the download report in the menu. We offer a wide range of opportunities for our pupils including specialist teachers for music, science and PE.

Remember, there are no limits to what you can achieve here at Benson!

Welcome to Children's Pages

Dear children,

We would like to give you the opportunity to get involved with creation of Benson Community School web pages. There are many ways in which you can participate.

Class Challenge

Design as a whole class your webpage. Write about your class, design the look, decide what you would like to include in your webpage, make pictures with digital camera, include links to interesting websites. There is much more what you can do, but remember that what counts is the team work.

The webpage of each class will be included as part of Benson Community School website.

Art and Design

Draw a picture of your class teacher or your favourite teacher.

You may draw as many pictures as you like. The best pictures will be published on our website.

Please write your name and class on the back of the finished pictures and hand them to Mrs Rindl.

Some children already submited their pictures. To see them click here: Art Gallery

Creative Writing

Write about your school, class, school trip or some experience in your school.

You may write as many articles as you like but each should be no more than one page of A4 paper and no less than one paragraph of at least four lines of text.

Please write your name and class on the back of the finished work and hand it to Mrs Rindl.
