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.
