Dear Parents and Carers,

As this is my first letter of the New Year, I would like to begin by extending my warming wishes to all
for a safe, happy, and successful 2022. The coming months promise much for Stepney All Saints
students and as we throw ourselves back into school life and embrace our vision: “We will achieve
excellence and inspire generations the All Saints Way”, we can expect excellent progress and great
achievements. We have a busy half term ahead of us and a number of key events in our school
calendar fast approaching.

Covid-19 Update
Many thanks to all of our students, parents and staff for ensuring that our testing programme at the
start of term once again ran smoothly and efficiently.
A reminder that all students should continue to test twice weekly (we recommend Sunday and
Wednesday evenings) using the school supplied lateral flow tests. If a positive result is received,
please note that this no longer needs to be followed up with a confirmatory PCR. However, please
inform the school of any positive test results.

Face Coverings
Thank you to students, staff and parents for following the new national guidance so carefully with
regard to face coverings. This will remain in place until the next Government review. We will
continue to remind and promote the use of face coverings throughout the school community, in
addition to ensuring that students are clear when exemptions are in place (for example in PE).
Enrichment Activities – Spring term
Our enrichment programme is updated each half term and a wide range of activities is on offer.
There is a dedicated section of our website listing the clubs and activities that are running. Please
encourage your child to participate.

VLE Homework Club
Our VLE Homework Club is open for all students to attend during term time. The VLE is open from
Monday to Friday, from 7.30 until 8.30am for independent study.
