About As

All Saints (Marsh) is a Church of England Voluntary Aided School. It means we maintain Christian Standards and relate a child's spiritual development to the Christian faith. However we very much welcome children of other faiths, and respect their views equally.

The School was originally a Church, which has been recently remodelled. Our school is open to all children between the ages of 4 and 11, who wish to benefit from a wide range of activities designed to deliver the Foundation Stage and National Curriculum.

Our school is very much a village school in a town setting. We are a small school with a maximum number of 120 pupils, with a reputation for a friendly and caring community. All Governors and Staff are dedicated to the development of your child.
Our latest Inspection report (October 2002) notes many good features including some excellent SATs results, good quality teaching and effective leadership. Parents may obtain the full report on request.

Changes to the school buildings and a limit on the number of pupils in school means we have four classrooms, together with a purpose built ICT suite equipped with modern computers, a library area and an additional teaching room which also houses resources.
The playground has been completely updated to provide a range of high quality climbing and play equipment and resources on a colourful safety surface. Tubs of plants with a covered seating area and Foundation Stage play zone complete the picture.
The playground is completely enclosed and entry to the school is through one controlled entrance, in St John's Street.

Parents are encouraged to help in school through a wide range of activities and the school has a Friends of All Saints Association, who meet regularly and fund raise for many important issues. Parents are also represented on the Board of Governors. The school encourages a range of school clubs to support ICT, the Arts and Sports activities.

The School is committed to work with the local community and with its neighbouring schools. For example we work together to provide a range of extended schools options - we use the After School and Breakfast clubs at our sister school, Wolborough.

We very much hope you enjoy reading about our school and feel you would like to become part of our family. If you have not yet visited the school please feel free to ring and make an appointment to meet our Headteacher, Mrs. Susan Rowe-Jones, and her staff, and see our school at work.


The Governing Body.
School Governors are drawn from the school, the wider community and the church.

Why are parents on the Governing Body?

Parent Governors bring the view of parents to the Governing body. However, they speak and act as individuals rather than being delegates of other parents. They have equal status in the work of the Governing Body, with equal voting rights.

What is the role of the Governors? They:
1. Oversee what is taught
2. Set standards of behaviour
3. Interview and select staff
4. Decide how the school budget is spent
5. Have overall responsibility for the correct running of the school
6. Monitor the performance of the Headteacher

School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together, they cannot act individually. The majority of our Governors represent a body of very experienced and enthusiastic people, from a wide range of backgrounds.

Starting school.
Our Admissions Policy is in line with that of Devon County Council. Each Devon school serves a particular area, but parents may apply for a place at any school. Parental choice of school is agreed whenever possible.
Where demand exceeds available places preference is given to:
*looked after children
*children with brothers or sisters attending the school
*children with special or medical needs
*children whose parents/carers wish them to have a Christian education.
Further details are available on request.
There will be no discrimination against any child on the grounds of disability or special education needs. Problems regarding admissions are dealt with by an Admissions Appeals Committee (South Devon Divisional Office Redworth House Totnes 01803 386823). Pupils are admitted in September following their fourth birthday. Initially the intake involves part-time attendance in the first two weeks. This enables us to settle your child in carefully and also to start the Foundation Stage Profiles which help us to plan their work programme.

A full programme of induction prior to your child's start at school involves visits by our staff to pre-school groups, and visits to school by your child. A Pre-School Information booklet is provided for new parents at this time. We also hold an informal meeting half a term before the school starts for parents of new children to provide information and to resolve any potential worries. By these means we hope to lay the foundations for a successful start at school. The Headteacher always makes herself available to talk to new parents informally. The smooth transition between home and school is of vital importance. Prospective parents are always welcome to ring for an appointment to visit the school.

As a school we appreciate knowing as early as possible if you need a place for your child. We recommend about the same time as when you apply for Nursery places. We have a limited number of places and need to plan ahead.
