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.”

On 26th May Mrs. Filsell wrote:

“Well, May Half Term has     arrived … and my oh my did we go out with a bang! Of course, we were celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee!

In our picture news assemblies, led by Miss Clarke and Mrs Wilkinson, the children were reminded of the reasons behind this national event, as well as discussing the newly opened Elizabeth line. Children were also reminded that within our Christian school, it is our responsibility to follow Jesus’ example – he teaches, and shows us, how to have faith, to love God ,and each other, as well as being honest and humble and to be joyful of others’ achievements.

Over the course of the morning, the children were busy visiting the ‘River Thames’ that had been created by the children across the school .

Our Thames River Walk.

I must congratulate all staff and children for their enthusiasm and   efforts – koinonia in action. A big thank you to our lovely PTFA who helped us out this afternoon too.  A HUGE thanks to you as supportive families, as without your party contributions and costume efforts, the party held in our play-ground this afternoon would not have been what it was – a core memory, forever held by our children as a real celebration and time of rejoicing, as we Grow Stronger Together in God’s Love.

Having Fun – Pre-Party!

Party Time – Songs from the Decades!

Celebrating!

After the half term break, school re-opened on Tuesday 7th June, On Friday 10th June, Mrs. Filsell wrote:

“Welcome back to the second half of the Summer term! I cannot believe we have only 6 weeks left until the summer holidays—time this year has really flown by in the blink of an eye!

Key Stage 2 literally kicked off the term by enjoying a very active Sports Day. It was lovely to have parents back on site to champion and support their children in this event. The children were consulted on the events they like and enjoy and it was lovely to see some firm favourites, alongside a staff relay team, who sadly lost against our speedy Year 6 crew!

St Paul Class performed, but in a different way, today and brought tears to many eyes during their class assembly. They gave a lovely overview of their Year 1 curriculum and sang beautifully, filling our hearts with joy. I was so impressed with their confidence and prayer – a huge thanks for Miss D’Argento and Ghazala for supporting the children so beautifully.

Next week, the excitement continues as we get ready for Reception and KS1’s Sports Days. We will also be holding an induction for our new families next Friday, this will be for those joining us in Reception in September! Mrs Kent, myself and the team cannot wait to meet the new members of our All Saints’ Family. It is worth sharing here, that this year we have been oversubscribed, this is great news for us and a reflection of how our reputation and provision goes from strength to strength! Thank you to all of our families who speak so highly of us and for their never ending support!

Friday 17th June:

Summer term is always busy, but as you can see this week has been a bumper week – even for us! Across the course of the week, children have been enjoying and engaging in STEAMM week activities, as well as school trips, sport’s day, receiving letters from pen pals and fighting for justice! All Saints’ hasn’t stopped.

The school Ambassadors and Eco Warriors wrote a letter to all school families. It was printed in the weekly News letter on 10th June.

Please take some time to read this important letter from the eco-warriors

‘Dear Family,

We, the school Ambassadors and Eco Warriors, would like to share with you the work that we have been doing to make our school more environmentally aware and responsible.

The children of All Saints’ are concerned about climate change and its effects on the animals of our planet. After thinking hard about what we could do as a school to give practical help, we decided that we would campaign against the use of unnecessary plastic.

First, we presented our ideas to Mrs Filsell, who was very supportive in our efforts. Then, we designed lessons about the negative effects of plastic on the environment for the teachers to teach their class       alongside their class Ambassador and Eco Warrior. The lessons shared some pretty scary facts about plastic such as, more than 40% of plastic is used just once, then thrown away and around the world, nearly a million plastic beverage bottles are sold every minute. Everyone agreed that we should do something to help. This is why we are campaigning for our school to ban the use of single use plastic water bottles. From now on, we are asking you, as an important part of our school community, to support our campaign by providing your child with a  reusable water bottle. We are proud that most children in school already have one of these and we are asking that all parents and carers follow their fantastic example.

Children will be expected to NOT bring single use plastic water bottles to school. As a reward, the classes that can achieve 100% of their class using reusable water bottles will be treated to a movie afternoon at the end of term!

We know that you care as much about our planet as we do and we will keep you up to date with the progress of our campaign.

Thank you for your support,

All Saints’ School Ambassadors and Eco Warriors.

They also wrote letters to their MP to tell him about their campaign.

Ambassadors and Eco Warriors posted their letters to our MP, Stephen Hammond, to inform him of our campaign and ask for his support in Merton for our fight against plastic pollution.

It hardly seems possible, but there are only 3 weeks left of this school year. The children break up on Thursday 21st July – and, all being well,  will be coming into church for their End of Year School Service: an event that has been missing for the past 2 years due to Covid.
