Wrap Around Care
At Benedict House we offer a Wrap Around care system in the form of Breakfast and After-School Club. Both of these are run in-house by our dedicated staff who know our children well, adding to our family-feel at school. If you would like to know more, then please contact our School Office team who would be happy to assist you.
At Benedict House we ensure we support busy families and provide the best possible care for children from 7.30 am to 6.00pm.
From 7.30-8.30, children can join their friends for a delicious and healthy breakfast (dietary requirements catered for ) and have chance to hear each other’s news, play games . Croissant and Lego are always a popular combination. All the children in Breakfast Club are supervised by Benedict House Staff in a cheerful friendly start to the day.
After school from 3.30-4.30 a variety of clubs provide each and every child with the opportunity to develop new skills , mix with children from other year groups and learn through fun. The choice of clubs varies each term to ensure children can try as many new interests as possible. Activities will include various sports , drama , art , forest school , IT , chess and many more .
In addition to clubs, Benedict House provides After Care from 3.30-6.00. Children are supervised by our own staff with the opportunity to complete homework, play games and enjoy a snack tea with their friends. If a child has a club they can then join After Care until 6.00 and combine the benefits of trying a new activity, sharing tea with their friends and then home after a busy day.
How We Care
By deploying a house merit system, appointing monitors, the election of prefects and our School Council, we encourage each child to make a positive contribution to school life while demanding the highest standards of behaviour, courtesy and self-discipline. Our staff make time for our pupils and ensure that they are heard and feel valued.
Pupil School Council
Our School Council is a team of children, voted for each year at the beginning of the Autumn term by their peers and chaired by the Assistant Head, who represent their classmates and provides an opportunity to use their pupil voice to make positive changes and influence major decisions within our school.
Recently, our School Council team worked to research and present new ideas for names for our school house merit system, and in turn then voted on the shields, designed by the children to represent these new names.
