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 24th September (which came too late for the October magazine) Mrs Fillsell wrote:
“This week, the children have been introduced to the Global Goals. These are a set of 17 goals set by world leaders that highlight the biggest challenges we face in our communities and around the world, and the shared plan to solve them. As a school, we aim to raise awareness and campaign for improvements around citizenship, justice and climate change and the environment. Being a Rights Respecting School, learning about and taking action around the goals is an important part of our journey to becoming a Gold RRS. It is also, an incredibly exciting opportunity for the children to become more globally aware and to be inspired to make a difference in the world!
Year 5 have started their ukulele lessons with Education Merton Music Foundation.
Year 5 really enjoyed their first lesson and can’t wait to continue these lessons over the coming weeks.
Today was election day at All Saints’, where both halls were set up with a polling station and ballot box where the children could cast their votes for their new class Ambassador. The children who wanted to be considered for the role were very brave and gave a persuasive speech on why their classmates should pick them.
Following the trail of devastation left by Hurricane Ida across parts of North America and discussion on climate change in the news recently, Miss Clarke and Mrs Wilkinson, in assembly this week, discussed how storms are a common feature in the bible. We discussed how in only a few minutes, a flash flood can cause incredible damage, which can take a community a long time to recover from. We reminded the children that it is important to remember that God is not a storm, but storms do remind us that there are forces much stronger than us. A strong storm is a reminder that we need a God, who is stronger than the storm. And because we have a Lord, who is stronger than any storm, we can have hope that we will recover. This week our core value was Koinonia which links very nicely to our All Saints’ emoji ‘Togetherness’.
DT Club have been thinking about being thankful and made clay ornaments and having fun practising their cutting skills and making fruit kebabs.
Reception have made pea soup as part of their healthy eating topic – Oliver’s vegetables.
Our new Ambassadors
Ambassadors at work – Let’s tackle idling!
“ Our new Yr 4, 5 & 6 Ambassadors were put straight to work, as they tackled the problem of idling outside our school! All children in these years participated in work-shops and poster-making activities as they learnt about the dangers of high pollution levels in our area and how we can all play our part in making the world a better place to be. I felt really proud of all the children and Ambassadors, as they took this learning really seriously, and put it into action! Not only did this reinforce the children’s work towards Global Goals, but why we should look after God’s world that he created for us linking to our ChristianValue of Creation of course!”

In her newsletter W/E15th October Mrs Filsell wrote:
“The last two weeks here at school have been so very busy and full of so many exciting things it would be impossible to sum it up in just one newsletter!
Some highlights include, amazing RE Community Days, berry art in Year 3, DT designs of landmarks, Greek Day, Har-vest Festivals and PE tournaments to name a few.
Our Christian Community Days (KS2 Wednesday & EYFS/KS1 Friday.)
We were lucky enough to be visited by Cathy from RE On Demand who led us in some exciting assemblies and workshops about The Lord’s Prayer and the Holy Trinity. We talked about the Christian values of forgiveness and love.
Throughout the day the children moved around different workshops exploring a key verse from Scripture. The verses selected are key verses from our school vision:
Proverbs 22:6 start children off the way they should go .
John 4:9-21 we love because he first loved us .
Luke 1:37 for with god nothing shall be impossible .
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you .
We explored what these verses might mean and what they could teach us. We discussed which Christian values they linked with and how we could demonstrate these at school and at home.
In our Art workshops we looked at the artwork by Hannah Dunnett. We listened to a worship song and thought about the imagery from it. We created our own images and added words from scripture and our worship songs.
In our music workshops each key stage learned a new worship song linked to their key verse:
We also spent time in an interactive prayer room where we considered different types of prayers, and used hands-on activities to pray. We talked about the Christian value of Reverence and how we could show respect whilst in this room.
