Welcome back for our summer term, school remains fully open. As the country begins to come out of national restrictions we ask you to remain vigilant. Current infections rates show that Leeds remain higher than most other areas. With an increased number of people on site, please ensure that you and your child follow all our site expectations and follow designated routes in line with our risk assessment for the safety of everyone. Also one parent on site with children, children must stay with parents whilst on site, facemasks to be worn by all adults (unless medically exempt) and high school students collecting younger siblings . Please continue to be vigilant in looking out for COVID symptoms in your family so as to avoid the further spreading of the virus.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. 

We thank you for all your support during the period of lockdown in January and February. We know it wasn't easy for families trying to balance home, school and work life in that time but we say a big well done to you. We also say a massive thank you to the staff team who managed to teach children remotely and at the same time teaching Key Worker and Vulnerable Children in school. Thank you this has been a real team effort from everyone. If your child has to isolate you can still access learning via Google Classrooms and Google Meet. Our Early Years' families will also be using Tapestry. Click here for further information on Remote Learning.  

DRUMBA comes to St Benedict's! (March '21)

School has been buzzing with the sound of drums and energized children as we welcomed Jake and Kyle from Drumba to lead workshops with our children. Drumba is a new and growing activity that combines the skills of music and drumming with aerobic style physical activity. It was an amazing day and something that we hope to build into both our curricular and extra-curricular opportunities in the future! Check out the video below and further insights into the day on our PE & Sport page of the website.

To celebrate World Book Day 2021, we are delighted to launch our very own Virtual Library. Click on the image below to be taken to our Virtual Library page where you can find a range of books and stories to enjoy!
