Term 5 2020-21
Dear Parents, Carers, Pupils and Staff
Welcome to our Term 5 Newsletter
I’m not sure about you, but for me, the last six weeks or so have absolutely flown by!
With the return schools and the unlocking from the restrictions now well underway, I have been so pleased to see children back in class learning and out and about at break times enjoying real life social interaction. As one of our Governors said in a recent visit, “It’s so lovely to see children and staff together as a community and enjoying life again.”
Term 4 2020-21
Welcome from the Principal
Dear Parents, Carers, Pupils and Staff
Welcome to our Term 4 Newsletter.
I am sure you will agree that it has been great to see the children back in school following the recent lockdown. I have spoken with pupils in assemblies about the importance of their efforts throughout the last year in stemming the spread of coronavirus and also about how they can be rightly proud of their school work in lockdown.
Term 3 2020-21
Term 2 2020-21
Term 1 2020-21
Welcome to the Term 1 Newsletter of the 2020-21 Academic Term – we hope you like the updated format. The word “unprecedented” has been used extensively to describe our current situation and although I may be at risk of verging towards hyperbole, I would suggest that “totally unprecedented” may be more apt!
Summer Term 2 2020 Newsletter
Although this year has finished in the most unusual manner, there is still much to celebrate. I am pleased to be able to once again to share some highlights of the recent term, and indeed the year that we have just finished. Given the volume of communication that I have recently sent out regarding the return in September, I will use this Newsletter to direct you all to some key piece of information about the new academic year. Please do read it carefully and get in touch with us via email@example.com if you need to.
Summer Term 1 2020 Newsletter
Welcome to our Term 5 Newsletter, written in the most unusual of circumstances in that we have now been closed as a school – and indeed, largely a country – since 23rd March due to coronavirus. I hope you will appreciate the reasons for this update being rather shorter than normal, but I hope it still provides a helpful update on the work of our school community this term and makes the position after half term clear for every year group and every student.
Spring Term Easter 2020 Newsletter
I am writing this on one of the strangest days the UK has faced for many years. We have just been informed by the government that the current lockdown will be extended for at least another three weeks in order to slow the spread of Covid 19 across the country. The last few weeks have been truly extraordinary and things will no doubt be different when we do indeed return.
Winter Term February 2020 Newsletter
It seems hard to believe that we have already completed Term 3 following the return to school after the Christmas break. With the mornings and evenings gradually becoming lighter, I am sure we are all looking forward to the full emergence of Spring soon! Notwithstanding the state of the weather, though, I am pleased to be writing to you again for our latest newsletter.

The festive season is upon us! With a busy term now behind us, our thoughts turn to much needed pause in the winter months.
Over the last few months, All Saints has, been a busy school community and I hope that you will enjoy taking some time during the Christmas break to read our Term 2 Newsletter. It contains important information about recent events and updates for our students, parents and carers.
