All Saints’ C of E Primary School and Church were both established towards the end of the last century, 1893.
Today this is a mutually enriching relationship with the school coming to worship in the church e.g. the Christmas and Leavers’ services, and the church helping at the school e.g. with collective worship and school governance. The school and the church reach out to the wider community together, especially with our Christmas and Summer Fayres, and through the Friends’ organisation.
The broad Christian ethos welcomes difference and people of all faiths and none.
New Reverend for All Saints Church, 12th November 2017
We are absolutely delighted with the appointment of Reverend Michael Griffiths who will be taking up his post in July 2018. The School was delighted to be asked by Bishop David of Basingstoke to help interview Reverend Mike. The DARTS (School Council) set him some challenging questions, gave him a tour of the school and sent feedback to the interview panel at the Church. The whole school really enjoyed Rev. Mike's Worship about 'The Good Samaritan' which linked to our value of respect in action. They were in awe of his amazing guitar playing and singing too.
We look forward to working with Rev. Mike in the future.
Throughout the Autumn Term 2018
We have been enjoying working on the new Understanding Christianity Resources and revising our Christian Values with Reverend Mike in our worships and R.E. Lessons.
Winchester College Links
We have thrived on our links with the Winchester College in terms of: weekly singing in Class 4, a river study in the College grounds, drama lessons culminating in a performance of Macbeth by Year 6 pupils, after - school chess club, musical performances and a special talk given by Nick Baker the Wildlife Presenter on behalf of The Cameron Bespolka Memorial Trust.
Every year we enjoy carol singing out and about in the community. We have special traditions with singing at the Salvation Army and at the Buttercross. For the first time we were invited to sing at the Chesil Lodge during the residents' Christmas Lunch.
Although we are a small primary school we believe it is important that we take the time and effort to focus on supporting charities which support the health and well-being of others. So far we have raised a total of £1042.50
£221:00 for Macmillan Cancer Support Cake and Apple Sale
£187:00 Jeans for Genes Non-Uniform Day
£634:50 Winchester Hospice and carol singing at The Buttercross
