  • All Saints' will be closed until the Government re open Primary Schools

    Published 31/12/20

    Please find below all announcements the School have made regarding the closure of All Saints', following the government announcement that all Merton Schools needed to close. It includes available provision for key worker and vulnerable children.

    Mrs Filsell's Announcement Regarding All Saints' Closure until 18th January 2021

    Dear Family,

    I hope that you and your families are all safe and well.

    As many of you may well be aware, this evening the government have announced that some primary schools will now NOT return for face to face education for all pupils from Monday 4th January as planned. At the present time, this delay on a return for all pupils is in place until Monday 18th January.

    Schools in Merton have been directed to implement what the government are calling its 'contingency framework' from Monday 4th January. This means that only pupils of critical/key workers and vulnerable pupils will be able to attend school for face to face learning. Therefore we will only be open to pupils of the above categories from Monday 4th January.

    School have received this information at the same time as the general public with no prior warning.

    This announcement clearly has significant impact for schools in regards to making all necessary arrangements in a very limited amount of time. 

    Tomorrow we will begin the process of communicating with parents/carers and gathering details of pupils eligible to attend school under the categories as listed above and will send further communications to yourselves regarding arrangements for Monday 4th January.

    I appreciate that this is not the news that any of us expected and is certainly not the manner in which we anticipated finishing a very different kind of Christmas break. However, I know that we all remain committed to ensuring that the safety and educational well being of all members of our All Saints' community continues to be our priority.

    I will be back in touch with you in the coming days.


    Kind regards, 

    Mrs Angela Filsell

    Further Information about the School Provision available for Key Worker and Vulnerable Children

    Dear Family, 

    Further to my email yesterday evening, I write with further details about in school provision from Monday 4th January.
    As directed by the government under the contingency framework for schools, All Saints' will only be open to pupils of critical workers and vulnerable children from Monday 4th January.

    Linked below is the most up to date list of those pupils who would qualify to attend school under those categories.

    With no notice of the intention of the government to close face to face provision to all other pupils, we need to act swiftly to organise how in school provision can be made for those pupils entitled to attend whilst continuing to support remote learning and with some staff self -isolating.

    Please note the following:

    *It is not mandatory that children of critical/key workers attend in school provision. If these pupils can be supported to learn remotely at home then they should do so.

    *All vulnerable pupils (please see link as above) should attend school. If your child is a vulnerable child and you do not wish them to attend in school provision you must discuss this with the school (on Monday 4th January).
    We will be contacted these families if we do not hear from them.

    *We aim for most children to stay with their class teacher and support staff members during this temporary closure. This may change based on whether staff need to isolate but we aim to keep this as consistent as we can. Staggered start and finishing times remain the same as before Christmas to ensure the safety of those children and adults on site. Children attending school will enter and exit via their usual routes. 

    *All pupils who are learning remotely will access learning daily via the remote learning offer. For Early Years, this is via Tapestry and for the rest of the school available on Google Classroom. We aim for the first day's learning to uploaded by 9am Monday 4th January and the work must be submitted daily as instructed by class teachers. If you have forgotten your log in details, please contact the school using the parent enquiries address:

    *Nursery and Reception classes (EYFS) will also remain closed except to those categories of children as above. Whilst we are aware that the contingency framework allows wider early years setting to remain open, as part of the primary school, and with many siblings in other year groups, the safety of the community by limiting all number of pupils attending is our priority at this point in time.

    *Please note that there will be no wraparound facilities available in this two week period (breakfast and after school clubs). 

    If you believe that your child is entitled to attend school (as per the categories in the link above) and, having noted the points regarding organisation of in school provision, you wish to request in school provision for your child starting from Monday 4th January, please reply to the form on Parentmail BY 10AM ON SATURDAY 2ND JANUARY AT THE VERY LATEST.

    If you have any further questions or queries, please contact me via the parent enquiries email address and either myself, or a member of the senior leadership team will get back to you as soon as we can.

  • Odd Sock Day starts Anti-Bullying Week 2020

    Published 16/11/20

    ‘Odd Socks Day’, on Monday 16th November, is a part of national Anti-Bullying Week, with the theme this year being, ‘United Against Bullying’. At All Saints’, we believe in a positive and celebratory approach to learning about friendships, differences and community. Bullying in all its forms will be included and discussed at age appropriate levels across all year groups. The children will be thinking about a range of topics around the theme of ‘community, differences and similarities’  from discussions in Nursery around what makes us special and unique, to Year 6 discussing what ‘normal’ means and how being different can affect a person’s life. We strongly encourage and nurture empathy, respect and compassion throughout each topic covered. Throughout the week, the children will learn that bullying occurs when it is Several Times On Purpose and can be both direct and indirect. All children will be reassured that bullying is not welcome or tolerated at our school and that there are many people they can turn to for help if needed.

  • Year 5 Topic Day - Vikings!

    Published 11/11/20

    The children enjoyed coming to school as Vikings and making Viking helmets, swords and shields. All the students had a fun filled day.

    Year 5 has gone on a fascinating journey back in time as they find out about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the kingdom of England and how England became a unified country. They will explore where the AngloSaxons and Vikings came from, how they fought for territory and power, and how their fighting ultimately led to the kingdom of England we know today. Along the way, they will also find out what life was like for everyday people living in Anglo-Saxon and Viking Britain, exploring things such as Viking runes and Anglo-Saxon stories like Beowulf.

  • Rollapaluza - Making keep fit fun!

    On Monday, the Year 6 children were lucky enough to participate in a fun fitness event called Rollapaluza.

    It involved them racing over a distance of 250m on exercise bikes, against a partner, to see who could achieve the quickest time. As you can see from the photos, the children had a ball and it was nice to see them excited about fitness and enjoying a little bit of friendly competition. :)

The focus of the workshop was on understanding what empathy is, and how we can show empathy towards others in our every day lives - including during our interactions with other people online.

  • The children Raised over £600 to help the devastation from Bushfires in Australia!

    Published 30/01/20

    Bushfires in Australia have ravaged at least 4 million hectares of land. This has included the loss of over 500 million animals and wildlife (and it is going to continue to rise) and at least 8000 koalas in NSW alone (1/3 of their current population!).

    As a result of learning and understanding about how devastating the fires are, the children in our school asked what they could do to help. We were absolutely delighted with the enthusiasm from all the children in our school, demonstrating our Christian values of compassion.

    On Wednesday the 29th of January, we held a whole school mufti day, amongst other activities. For the mufti day  the children came in Australian colours (green/gold, or as a famous Australian or Australian animal). We raised money to go to the charity Wires Australian Wildlife Rescue Organisation, who support in the rescue and rehabilitation of Australian wildlife.

    The children made Australian coloured homemade slime, Aboriginal Art, sang Australian Songs, held a raffle and a cake sale to raise money. They raised over £600! which we are really proud of.
