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 children broke up for Christmas on Thursday 16th December, which meant that most of their Christmas activities had not taken place when our December magazine went to press. So, as indicated last month, they are reported below.

In her newsletter to parents on 3rd December, Mrs Filsell wrote:

‘Well, Christmas has well and truly arrived here school! We have been so very busy getting into the Christmas spirit. The first signs of Christmas arrived in the shape of our beautiful  Christmas hoops… both halls are now beautifully decorated with the children’s work being proudly hung alongside our Christmas trees.

Huge thanks to our lovely staff, especially Pauline our caretaker, who spent time preparing and hanging them! I am proud of the children and staff for their efforts.’

‘Another highlight of the week was our Ks1/Yr3 Nativity performance, see below for words about how impressed we were from Miss Clarke, our Deputy Headteacher.

“I wanted to share a few words about how amazing the Nativity was this week. The children were so beautifully behaved and   presented, and did so well with their singing. This time of year is so special and I really enjoyed the retelling of the Christmas story.

The children are all Super Stars and we are very proud of them all.”

Year 3 also visited Dean City Farm today and had a marvellous time singing and joining in in a rather authentic feeling setting.

Year 1 have also had an adventure this week by visiting Brooklands Museum via coach — they all came back safely, if a little tired, with much to tell us about all they had learnt.

Well done Year 1!’

The following week, 10th December, Mrs Filsell wrote:

‘Our Christmassy feel has continued this week as I had the pleasure of attending both the Early Year’s Nativity and Years 4 – 6 Carol Service.

The EYFS Nativity was delightful, and as I mentioned to Tuesday’s   audience, my smile couldn’t have been wider and my cheeks truly ached from the joy I felt seeing the children perform! The readings and singing were so beautiful and I felt so proud of the children. Well done everyone, including our Early Year’s staff who put so much effort in to organising the event, and for our parents for always supporting us.

Thursday was equally delightful, as I was lucky enough to visit the Church and see the older children sing and read. It felt amazing to be back in All Saints’ Church and for the children to enjoy this experience once again. A highlight was the percussion and piano  accompaniment — well done children! Again huge thanks to our  volunteer Wendy, and to Miss Miskimmin, for doing such a smashing job of leading the service.

We also enjoyed a yummy Christmas dinner on Thursday — music, fun and food was had and enjoyed by all — yummy!!! ‘

On Saturday 11th December,  the choir and some of the Key Stage 2 children assembled at Merton Abbey Mills at 12 noon – together with several members of staff – to sing carols they under the bandstand. Good publicity for the school, and much enjoyed by all who passed by.

Year 5 & 6 enjoyed a rather wet football  tournament earlier this week — well done!

‘Next week, the fun continues with Christmas parties and a special Christingle service for our Yr 4-6 parents—we cannot wait to see you!’

On the last day of term, Mrs Filsell wrote:

The children have had a wonderful final week this week and have had amazing fun learning, playing, creating and even partying!

This week, we welcomed a  special visitor — he definitely had celebrity status!

We held our annual Toy Service in school  on the last Monday of term.

Thank you for your kindness in donating so many toys to our service —The Dons were very grateful!

Today Year 3 children helped me with my final Advent assembly —huge thanks to Arran, Karina and Gaby who read prayers and shared their facts so confidently. Well done to St Richard who contributed with some beautiful reflections as well. Below are some of their Advent Prayers.

Our End of Term service was also a perfect time to reflect and  celebrate all that has been achieved this term. I felt so proud awarding Star of the Term Certificates and Christian Values Certificates — so many kind acts and hard work from everyone — I know that teachers found it incredibly hard to choose winners.

There have been many challenges for us here at All Saints’ and I am so very grateful for the love and support received from Governors, families and staff everyday. Working together in harmony and in the spirit of Koinonia makes our school the very best it can be for our beautiful children — thank you.

Wishing you all a very healthy, safe and happy Christmas—we cannot wait to see you again in the new year.

God’s Blessings.

All Saints School Wraparound Care .

From January, on a trial basis over the spring term, we will be extending our wraparound hours, as we recognise from the survey results that this would be useful to many of you. If successful, we will adjust this longer term.

Due to increased costs due to the trial and increased food costs over the last few months, we have made a small adjustment to our normal charges.

Our new timings will be: – Breakfast Club hours 7.30 – 8.45  am. After school Mon-Fri 3.30 – 6.00  pm

New charges – the cost of wraparound will be: – Breakfast -£6.00. A/S – £12.00. A/S Discount – £8.00

The school is holding one more ‘Open Day’ in January for those  starting School or Nursery in September 2022.

If you know anyone with children starting in  September who have not yet sent an application form to Merton please tell them about the Open Day and encourage them to contact the school office * to book a place, and go along.
