Staying warm

Dear Parents/Carers,

Now the weather is getting colder and our classrooms still need to be ventilated, we would like to suggest that children wear another layer underneath their uniform. This could be a white vest or tee-shirt worn under their school shirt so that they still look smart in their uniforms.

We will continue to keep the windows open during learning time as per our risk assessment. External classroom doors will be closed during lessons and then opened up during break and lunch times to further ventilate the rooms.

ASBSA Needs You!

Dear Parents,


At last years All Saints Benhilton School Association (ASBSA) AGM John Farrer and Sophie Fewings were re-elected as Co-Chair of ASBSA, however that was to be the last year that John and Sophie would chair ASBSA and we advertised for a new person or team to take over the reins from September 2020.


Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 and world events since the beginning of this year, there were no further ASBSA events after the Christmas Fair.


At a time when the school is facing many challenges a strong and resilient PTA is needed to bring fresh ideas and support the school in fundraising and engaging with parents. Mrs Stanley Bristowe is very keen and has some fantastic ideas of how ASBSA can continue and prosper even under the restrictions of the current situation.
As such we would like to put out a request:
We need a new ASBSA Chairperson or team to take on the role of leading the ASBSA forward into the 2020/2021 academic year.
If you are interested please contact a member of the ASBSA team or speak to Mrs Stanley Bristowe.


We have a dedicated Committee and Gemma Berman as Treasurer and Michelle Rose as Assistant Treasurer, so if you would like to join the committee please contact your class rep, the list is at the bottom of this newsletter.


ASBSA cannot continue without the help of all parents so please get involved.


Thank you
ASBSA Team
