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.’

“Today, our Early Years had their chance to shine as they all took part in their Sports Day! Well done to all of the children who had such fun and tried so hard, and of course to Miss Ghassibe who has gone to great lengths to make sure these days go out with a bang!”

In the newsletter to parents on 18th June, Mrs Filsell wrote:
“This week has been all about STEAMM, whereby our team and teachers have planned for the most amazing week involving skills from the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths and Music! I have to say that I really think the staff and children have outdone themselves this year and I have been in awe of their creativity and work!”
The week was full of investigative science, yummy food technology, structural engineering, creative process art, measurement in maths and movement in music. The children had an amazing time and really demonstrated our Christian values of Koinonia and Endurance, as they have embraced each challenge with a ‘can-do’ attitude.
‘This week has been AMAZING! I enjoyed using the data loggers’- Coire Year 1-St Paul
‘We loved STEAMM Week, we really loved making cars with motors’- Miyah Year 3- St Margaret

Children in Reception explored different materials using the Three Little Pigs as the basis for their ideas. They used Lego to build some too!
Nursery were predicting what would happen when they added milk/water to the skittles. Then they predicted what would happen when we added dish soap to each!
Year 4 used their I.T. Skills to ‘blog’ and share their thoughts on STEAMM Week
At the end of June, Miss Reed and Mrs, Bradbury were pleased to report:
”On Wednesday 23rd June, a number of children and staff were interviewed by a UNICEF accreditor to see whether we had achieved enough to become a Silver Rights Respecting School. It is with great pleasure that we can announce we were awarded Silver Accreditation! The feedback from the accreditor was incredibly positive, with her concluding that we had achieved a very strong Silver and then highly recommending that we go for Gold next year. We could not have achieved this without the support of the whole school community and so we would like to thank all of you for embracing and supporting the beautiful rights respecting ethos that we have created at our school. A very BIG thank you to the following children, who met with the accreditor via video call on the day:
Year 6: Michael, Olivia, Phoebe & Robert. Year 5: Joshua & Blossom Year 4: Darshan, Noah, Serena & Hayden Year 3: Owen & Miyah.
We were incredibly impressed with how well the children spoke, confidently sharing their knowledge of rights – we were so proud of them all!
The accreditor was also so impressed with how well the children knew the language of rights and of how they demonstrated an awareness of times when some children might not be able to enjoy their rights, both abroad and in England. The overwhelming feeling on the day, which the accreditor mentioned a number of times, was that the children of All Saints’ feel safe, cared for, respected and listened to. This fills our hearts with so much joy and is the reason we all come to work every day! Moving forward, we are really excited to continue this Rights Respecting School journey, as we head for Gold next year, with a particular focus on the children being involved in campaigning and working together to make a difference both locally and around the world! Well done everyone!”
Summer Term will end for the children on Wednesday 21st July and for staff on Friday 23rd, so all news from the rest of term have to wait until our September magazine.
We wish everyone a happy and relaxing Summer Holiday, and look forward to seeing them back , safe and well, in September.
