Christmas Online Safety Song

With a tech-filled Christmas on the horizon, we thought parents might need a little help in keeping their children safe when using their new digital devices…
We’re delighted to have once again teamed up with our teacher friends Dan and Sam from ‘Musicalternative’ to bring you this jolly online safety jingle for parents – for you to share with your whole school community!
Please watch and feel free to share this song across your social media platforms:

Benmore Day 4

Good evening!


We’ve had an awesome last day! The boys and girls have been a real pleasure this week and done themselves proud!


Thursday night calls for a disco here at Benmore and we’ve used up the last of our energy dancing the night away! They’ve almost flossed themselves in half and taught the teachers all the cool new moves!


The school will keep you updated with our estimated time of arrival tomorrow afternoon! I’m sure you’ll hear lots of funny and exciting news and stories when we get home!


See you soon! Make sure the hot water is on and the washing machine is empty!


Mrs M, Mr B, Miss H, Mr T and P7
