Please be aware that we still have continued pressures on staffing in both Admin, Front of House, SENCo and leadership due to staff illness and COVID isolation. Consequently, there may be a delay in responding if you are contacting school. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. 

Are you looking for a school place for your child for September 2022? Please click here for our Admissions information. 


As the number of positive cases increase, we do ask you to 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. Click here for further COVID updates.


If your child is symptomatic and has to isolate but is well enough to access learning, they can do so 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!

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.
