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.”

In her newsletter of 14th October, Mrs. Filsell wrote:

“This half term has gone past in the blink of an eye, yet when looking back over it, I am delighted to see how much the children have already progressed and achieved. It has also been wonderful to see how quickly the children have settled into their new year groups, even with Nursery and Reception, it is like they’ve always been here!

A big well done to our runners who participated in the cross borough cross-country this week!

Today we enjoyed a very special occasion in the Hanover Road Hall… we all came together to say a fond farewell to Pat Stewart. Pat has worked in the school for over 33 years and begins her retirement   today. Pat was presented with an All Saints’ Leavers certificate and gifts/cards galore as we all bid our final goodbyes. Pat was very impressed with our secretly rehearsed song, ’I’m Happy’. On behalf of all of the Governor’s, staff and children, I would like to thank Pat for her long service here at school. We will all miss her so much and wish her much success and happiness as she enters her well-deserved  retirement! “

Reception have been making leaf biscuit!

In RE, Year 5 have been learning about the miracles that Jesus  performed. They used freeze frames and thought tacking to understand the characters thoughts and feelings in the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead.

On November 11th Mrs. Filsell wrote:

“Last week was an incredible one! We celebrated one of our core  Christian values, Koinonia, in the form of community week. The week focused on the key aspects which make up the heart-beat of our community by covering our Jigsaw (PSHE) units of works and building the week’s work around inclusive and diverse texts, as well as  creating all sorts of delights to sample and enjoy from around the world. (see the pictures overleaf.)

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, there have once again been many trips and visits to bring curriculum aspects to life! Examples include Year 4 visiting the British Museum and Year 2 to London Zoo.

The children really enjoy their trips out and about, as do the school staff.

A key focus of this week’s activities has been Remembrance Day today. The children have been discussing the importance of this special day by creating the most beautiful artwork which has been displayed in the school halls. The Faith Group have also played a big part of the preparations, by planning the order of service and writing prayers, poems and special words to highlight the importance of remembering not only those who fought in wars in the past, but those who continue to fight for freedom in our modern world. Mrs Kent and I felt incredibly proud of their dedication, insight and diligence.

Finally, a big well done and ‘shout out’ to the children who visited Haydon’s Road park this week. They demonstrated our value of creation by planting some beautiful bulbs that we are very excited to see sprout in the spring time.”

By the time you read this, the end of term will be fast approaching, and the whole school will be busy working towards Christmas. Rehearsals for the Nativity Plays (Early Years and KS1) and the KS2 Carol Service will be in full swing.

The term will be rounded off with a Christmas Dinner and Christmas parties, and the whole school coming into church for an end of term service. on Thursday 21st December at 1.00 pm.

The School re-opens after their Christmas break on Thursday 5th January 2023 and will be coming into church again the following day.
