"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.......... "

Together we Flourish
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
Our school values of LOVE, HOPE, JOY, HONESTY and THANKFULNESS are woven throughout the fabric, environment and culture at Morpeth All Saints. Without these values, we recognise it is difficult to flourish and live life in all its fullness.
What do our Morpeth All Saints values mean to us?
LOVE: Our children and staff care and respect each other without wanting anything in return. We always want our words and actions to show love and value to those around us.
HOPE: In our school hope is much more than just wishing as hard as we can that things will be different. It is about believing that the world can be better and being prepared to do something to enable this to happen.
JOY: Experiencing joy goes beyond happiness that can change with the ups and downs of life. We want children and adults to find deep satisfaction and delight in the big and small things in life and to celebrate these.
HONESTY: We value being truthful as part of living a good life and building trust with one another. Being honest involves being brave and even being willing to admit our mistakes.
THANKFULNESS: We look for all the good around us and we are grateful. We look for those who are responsible for these good gifts and we simply say ‘thank you’.
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!
As Headteacher of Morpeth All Saints Church of England First School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our vibrant, caring and happy school. At Morpeth All Saints we strive to enable all children within our care to achieve their very best, fully utilising their God given gifts and talents.Read More of the school welcome page
