All Saints' Church of England Primary School

All Saints' C of E Primary School

All Saints' 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.

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 

Key Festivals
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.
  • Harvest Festival In the lead up to Harvest each class prepares art work or writing to be displayed at the event. The children are also encouraged to decorate a shoe box and fill it with harvest goodies. The shoe boxes get more creative each year and the food donated by the children is distributed it throughout Merton to those in need. Parents are warmly welcomed to attend this event, and many of them join in with some of the traditional Harvest songs.
  • Remembrance Day In learning about Remembrance Day, children are encouraged to express their understanding through creating art work depicting Remembrance Day and writing about what it means to them. Each class proudly displays their work in the School Hall and the Church so everyone can share it.
  • Christmas Christmas is always an exciting time at All Saints' with Nativity plays and carol services which tell the story of Christmas in ways that are understood by every age.
  • Easter Artwork is again prepared for display in the Church for the celebration of Easter. Palm crosses are blessed by Father Christopher and given out to the children during the end of term service held at All Saints’ Church.
  • Other Events The children are also involved in other Church festivals throughout the year, contributing artwork and prayers for Mothering Sunday, laying flowers in the Church for Corpus Christi and attending Church to celebrate All Saints Day and Epiphany.
