Letter from the Governors

As many of you will know Mrs Karen Stanley-Bristowe has been Acting Headteacher at School since mid-June during what has been a busy time including a successful Ofsted Inspection in July. Governors are extremely grateful for her leadership and also for the support from Parents and all the staff in this period. I am now pleased to advise you that following the usual recruitment process with advertisement and interview the Governors have appointed Mrs Stanley-Bristowe as our new Headteacher. This promotion is with immediate effect and we all offer her our sincere congratulations and good wishes for the future. Many of you will be enjoying the School’s productions and festivities over the next two weeks and once again our thanks to all the staff and children for their unstinting efforts.

With very best wishes to you and all the Benhilton Community for a joyous Christmas and a happy new year.

Yours sincerely,

Martin Rowland Chairman of Governors

Young Carers Bronze Award

We are delighted to announce that All Saints Benhilton CoE Primary School has been given a Bronze Award for our work to make sure students don’t miss out on an education because they are young carers.

To achieve our Bronze Award we have demonstrated that we support young carers in many ways, including homework clubs and drop-in sessions with a member of staff who is responsible for this vulnerable group of pupils. Vital information about how to identify young carers is made available to all school staff, and noticeboards and the school webpage let students and their families know where to go for help.

A huge thanks to Mr Belardini for all his hard work and dedication to the education of our young careres and for achieving this award for our school.

Keeping safe online at Christmas Facebook Live with Roblox on 16 December

Many of our children will be spending time online this Christmas, and some will be fortunate enough to receive gifts of new devices or games. We encourage the positive use of technology and understand its role in fun and learning – at school and at home. But there are risks to all online activity, so we would like to tell you about an opportunity to find out more.

On 16 December at 7.30pm there will be a free Facebook Live session which will cover what to watch out for, top tips for staying safe, parental controls you can set and forget, and the opportunity to ask questions.

Sign up now to receive a reminder at safechristmas.lgfl.net

The event will be run by experts in the DigiSafe team at LGfL and will also feature a special guest from the game Roblox which many of our pupils play.

We encourage you to attend this event from the comfort of your home before you wrap up those shiny new devices or games – it’s a lot less stressful to change settings before Christmas morning – or before your children start the holidays and want to spend time online.

Please also remember before buying Christmas presents that games have age ratings linked to their content, not their difficulty (games are rated 18 for the same reasons as films - inappropriate language, sex and violence).

There are plenty of great reasons to make technology part of your Christmas, so remember to talk about positives with your child – one great way to find out what they do online and also have fun together is to ask them to show you what they do and to teach you to play their games
