St. Bede's R.C. Primary School is situated in Washington in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. We are an average sized school and cater for 30 children in each year group, as well as having 26 places in Nursery, which is open on a morning.
At St. Bede's we always strive to live out our motto, 'We care, We share, We help one another. We will strive to give all children the opportunity to develop their intellectual, physical, social and spiritual attributes to ensure they receive a broad education and achieve their best. By working in partnership with all parent and carers we will ensure that our goals are achieved.

Who is my neighbour?
Seeing the great need for mercy and healing in the world, Pope Francis has called for the Year of Mercy. This is special period, also known as a Holy Year or
Jubilee Year,for the Catholic Church. It is a time for the Church across the world to take a year to focus on forgiveness and healing in a special way.
The Year of Mercy is an invitation to show love, kindness, and unbounded generosity. Pope Francis is offering us all the opportunity to encounter the incredible
mercy of God. Encountering mercy means encountering God. It can transform our life, our relationships, our work, and our ability to embrace and experience all of life.
Pope Francis has asked us all as individuals and as a Church to be a witness of mercy by reflecting on and practising the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
