"The school is a warm, friendly, and welcoming community for all families, regardless of their religious belief. Parents speak of pupils being excited about going to school. Attendance is very good. Parents and staff are committed to the school’s Christian vision and values and recognise their positive impact on the lives of the pupils.......... "

We have five core values at
Morpeth All Saints Church of England Aided First School
chosen by pupils and governors.
The children learn about these in depth during our collective worship.
We aim to make these values central
to everything we do at school and in life
We believe as friends we can support each other and be supported.
We believe we should make wise choices in our lives.
We believe in aiming high and having a positive approach.
We believe that "love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres" 1 Corinthians, Chapter 3 verses 4-7
Respect for everyone and everything. "Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you" Exodus 20:12
This year, Reception performed the Nativity for all the parents. We retold the story of the birth of Jesus. We all took part and were angels, shepherds, wise men, innkeepers and of course, Mary, Joseph and not forgetting the Donkey. We remembered why Christian's celebrate Christmas.
Interfaith Week In Nursery
In Nursery we talked about the Hindu festival of Sankranti. 'San' means plenty and 'kranti' means change. During the festival of Sankranti people enjoy visiting the houses of friends, eating lots of sweet food and also go to bonfire displays. Children like to make kites to fly. In Nursery we listened to a story about a red kite which flew away and would not come back. We then made our own kites and tested them outside. It was great fun!
Our school is situated in attractive and extensive well maintained grounds in a small housing estate, Lancaster Park, which is north of the town of Morpeth. The school first opened in 1972 and was formerly known as Wansbeck St Aidan Church of England Aided First School until it was renamed in 2001.Read More of the school welcome page
