Due to the current situation, our planned transition programme to have Year 6 students visit the Benfield site in the final week of term cannot take place as hoped this year in the interests of mitigating the risk of transmission and protecting everyone on the school sites.

We appreciate this is frustrating, and not where we wanted to be as we approach the end of this school year and we are currently working hard with our colleagues in our feeder primary schools to make sure that an alternative model of transition can be delivered to all of our Year 6 students to support them through the transition process. 

Further details will be made available to parents/carers in the coming weeks but students will receive on-line virtual workshops and presentations as well as visits from Benfield staff into primary schools so that key information can be given to students and so that any questions can be addressed. We will also be making increased use of the Transition section of our school website so that students can access learning resources remotely to help prepare them for secondary school in September.



Our uniform supplier is Emblematic, orders need to be placed before 18th July to guarantee delivery by September.

Alternatively, their shop at Longbenton Trading Estate (opposite ASDA) will open exclusively for Benfield students on Wednesday 7th July and Thursday 15th July from 5pm until 8pm.
