At St Benedict's we pride ourselves on ensuring we provide a high quality Catholic Education for the children in our care. We aim to inspire children in their learning so they are enthusiastic to attend every school day. If you child is ill please ensure you notify school by 9.30am via email, text or telephoning the school. Please note that school undertakes a first day response to ensure our safeguarding responsibilities are fulfilled. This means you will continue to be contacted until we have a valid reason for your child's absence. This process does take up valuable time of our Admin team each day, so by contacting school before 9.30am on the day of your child's absence you will be helping school to become more efficient. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
