The Nursery runs Morning (8:40-11:40am) and Afternoon (12:30-3:30pm) Sessions.

The registers are kept open for 15 minutes from the beginning of both morning and afternoon sessions. After these times, a child is marked officially absent unless previous notification has been given.

Children who have not been collected 10 minutes after their pick-up time are taken to the School Office to wait for the person collecting them.

Please confirm an absence with a telephone call on the day, by 10am and a subsequent letter on returning to school.

The SCHOOL OFFICE is open from 8:30am.

Parents and the School

We like to work closely with parents and value theirinput to the school. Our regular newsletters keep parents informed as to what is going on in the school and how they can get involved. We operate an “Open Door Policy” and welcome discussion with parents regarding all aspects of the school. All Saints Benhilton is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. To read our Child Protection Policy and our Safeguarding Statement please see our School Policies page.

Behaviour and Discipline

At All Saints Benhilton everyone is expected to behave in a responsible manner, to show care, consideration and courtesy towards others and to have respect for property. There is emphasis on praise and encouragement for either individuals or groups of children, in order to foster good relations within the school and to maintain high standards of behaviour. We aim:

  • To maintain and enhance a good standard of discipline.
  • To provide an appropriate and positive atmosphere where effective learning can take place.
  • To ensure that children, teaching and non-teaching staff, parents and governors are made aware of the standard of behaviour that is expected.
  • To foster the development of self discipline and self esteem.
  • To encourage a group responsibility which maintains standards.

Unfortunately there will be occasions when punishment is necessary. This normally takes the form of individual reprimand, withdrawal from an activity or referral to the Head teacher.

Homework

Our aim is to encourage a positive attitude to work at school and at home on the part of both parents and children. Parents can do a great deal to support the work of the school by helping to develop their children's vocabulary, number awareness and general knowledge.

Homework is set according to our school policy, available on request, which provides for increased opportunity for out-of-school study as the children progress through the school.

All children are encouraged to read widely at home and will have access to the school library for this purpose. Children throughout the Primary age range should spend some time reading every evening.


And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28
