All Saints' C of E Church
We're very proud to be a Church of England school and value our links with the Southwark diocese and our local parish church, All Saints. Children experience Christian worship as part of everyday life at All Saints' and the calm, positive atmosphere that this promotes is a key feature of our school.
Father Christopher comes to school to lead worship assemblies each week. The school also attends All Saints Church throughout the year to celebrate important festivals, which are led by Father Christopher, and hold end of term services, which we invite all parents to attend as well. Links between the School and the Church are developed and strengthened through the work of the Faith Group.
The ‘Faith Group’ is a committee made up of members of the staff and the governing body. Together, we work to ensure that our school ethos continues to be inclusive and strongly centered on core Christian values with a focus on developing the whole child and promoting a real understanding and respect towards those of other faiths. Pupils, including the youngest, are encouraged to be reflective in their learning, think deeply about their behaviour and relationships with others. We warmly welcome children and families from different faith groups. That's what makes All Saints' the diverse place that it is. We work, pray and play together - respecting each others faith and beliefs.
Key Annual Events
|The key Festivals and events which bring the church and school together to celebrate are our Harvest festival, Remembrance Day, Christmas and Easter. In the lead up to each event classes prepare art work and writing to be displayed in the church and school halls. The children contribute during services by reading prayers, they have written and singing songs they have learnt. Children can join the choir in Key Stage Two, performing at a variety of events including our School Carol Service at All Saints' Church during the Christmas period and at various church services throughout the year.|
