If this is your first introduction to All Saints’ School Gresford, may I wish you and your child a warm welcome. I hope that he/she will have happy and fruitful years here. If you already have a child at the school, then welcome back. I hope that you will find this website a useful as a source of reference.
At All Saints’ School we realise the importance of a broad based education and its significance to a young child’s future. For parents the choice of school can be a difficult decision, and it is therefore important that the philosophy of the school i.e. what we stand for, is understood when you entrust your child to our care. We aim to provide your child with a happy and secure environment where there are clear expectations of high standards in work activities and behaviour, and where we form strong links between school and home.
We are always here to listen or to help, and in partnership with you, we will do our best to encourage and develop your child’s full potential in all aspects of school life.
I hope that you will find this website informative and helpful. I look forward to a happy and close professional relationship with you and your child.
Mr G Williams, M.Ed. (Headteacher)

Our aims are directed towards preparing each pupil for life beyond the school. They are concerned with developing high standards through the provision of quality learning experiences and making the most effective and efficient use of all resources available to us.
We seek to enable children to reach their full potential educationally, spiritually and socially, so that they may become all that God has created them to be. Our distinctive church school is committed to developing lively, enquiring minds in a happy, safe and caring environment, based on Christian values, which encourages all to show respect, acceptance and understanding of others.

SPIRITUAL, MORAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT OF PUPILS
We recognise that children are at the centre of education and, whatever their age, ability, gender, race or background, should have an equal opportunity in what we offer as a school.
We raise awareness of moral values and respect for the beliefs of others within a Christian ethos and we foster self confidence within a secure and happy environment. We develop a caring community which recognises equality of opportunity and fosters concern and respect for others.
The school is a warm and cohesive community. Courtesy, good manners and levels of consideration for others are evident. The school values high quality relationships between pupils and between staff and pupils.
