All Saints’ School is a voluntary aided Church of England School which has a strong link with the local parish of All Saints’ and has a committment to Christian worship and religious education.
All Saints’ Church, the Diocese of Southwark, parents, school staff and the L.E.A are all represented on the Governing Body which has oversight of the organisation, budget and curriculum of the school.
The Parent Teacher Association holds various fund-raising events during the year and welcomes help from any quarter.
The school values highly it’s links with All Saints’ Church and the children are welcomed into the church to celebrate the Christian Festivals and for end-of-term services. Parents and friends are always welcome at these services.
All the current school information can be found on the dedicated school website, but if you would like to know a little of the early history of our school visit our ‘School History’ page. You might also like to take a look at some of the pictures on our ‘Past in Pictures’ page.’
The Latest News from our School
“Growing Stronger Together in God’s Love.”
The July / August magazine came out before the end of term, so we were unable to report news about the customary end of term / end of year events. They are being reported here as the school is on holiday – so there are no recent events to report.
Covid restrictions were still in place when the children broke up for the summer holidays, so it was not possible to hold the customary End of Term / School Leavers service in church, attended by the whole school and a large number of parents and friends. (Hopefully that will be back next year.) Whole school assemblies were not possible in school either – but nevertheless the staff ensured that children did not miss out. End of term / End of Year certificates were awarded and distributed to children in each class as usual – the names of recipients were also reported in Mrs Filsell’s final newsletter to parents.
The Certificates reported were for Star of the Term, Star of the Year, and Christian Values – Service,
The traditional presentations to Year 6 leavers were also done in school
In her final newsletter of term – also the end of a ( very different) school year – Mrs. Filsell wrote:
Well, after moaning about dreary, rainy weather for such a long while—the sun has hit and it sure is hot! It certainly does feel like end of Summer term now and the children (and staff!) are really ready for their summer break. Everyone has worked so hard and come together brilliantly since we reopened back in March and we hold out hope that no future closures will happen, but time will tell.
In September, we plan to go back to our normal opening and closing times at our school sites – no more staggered starts – hurrah!

The pandemic has also helped us re-look at the way we do things.
One of the more positive changes has been children coming to school in their PE kits. It has allowed us to maximise the time spent doing PE lessons, as well as less items being lost. With this in mind, after the holidays we will be asking all children on their PE days to attend in PE kit. Days of PE will be sent in due course, but there are always two sessions per week.
Goodbye Year 6
Today, I gave out Bibles and Leaver’s Certificates to our Year 6 leavers outside on the Haydon’s Road playground. The class have been so resilient over the last 18 months. They have also been everything an All Saints’ pupil should be: kind, supportive, committed to their learning, loving and compassionate. Our values in action! Wishing all of our amazing Year 6 pupils the best of luck and love. Please come back and see us, you have done us proud! As in our mission statement, we have… Start[ed] the children off the way they should go. Pro verbs 22:6 and know that they will go on to achieve marvelous things.
Enjoy a wonderful summer! “
As reported in the July/August Parish News – All Saints’ is a Rights Respecting School.
Above is the new logo which you will see on their website, and there will soon be a banner hung on their fences for all to see!
