All Saints School is a Church of England school. Their Christian Vision is:
The biblical basis for this vision is: Luke 10:25-37 – The Parable of the Good Samaritan. Follow this link to see how this parable is explored through years 3-6.
The parable of the Good Samaritan underpins the school’s ethos of love, respect, acceptance, religious tolerance, attitudes to people who are ‘different’, compassion, who is a ‘neighbour’ (including our global neighbours) and how we should we treat others.
At All Saints’ we live out Christian values, with them being at the heart of everything we do; they shape the way in which we guide our children to become good citizens. We aim to develop ‘aspirational lifelong learning’ within a nurturing environment where everyone is valued and respected.
The church and school work closely together, and examples of recent projects and events can be seen on our Schools page.
Our Family Link Worker, Ania Matthews, is our link between the church and both schools.
She supports families through one to one mentoring and pastoral care, as well as through family focused events and groups. With the help of local charities and organisations she has been able to assist parents in a practical way too, for example by signposting, helping with school uniforms, food vouchers.
Ania delivers Drawing & Talking sessions in both schools. She is a qualified Christian coach and supports the schools in promoting Christian values by leading Collective Worship assemblies, Bible stories, Muddy Church inspired activities and singing projects, e.g. for Christmas.
Every third Sunday of the month she co-runs Messy Mass, a family friendly worship at All Saints Church, where she sings and leads set aside activities for children. With the church volunteers, she delivered three highly attended Messy Church events for the school and church community in 2022.
