I am delighted to welcome you to the Totley All Saints website which should give you a flavour of all the amazing things that our children experience at our school! TASS is extremely special & is well loved by its children, staff & parents! We seek to provide a top quality education, an extremely caring atmosphere & one where children can fully thrive & reach their full & amazing potential as a child of God!
As we always say – it’s all happening at TASS!

The City Championships took place last Thursday (23rd June) with 13 of our children getting through to the first round of the competition & competing with the elite of the city’s primary school athletes! Outstanding performances came from Toby Moorwood who came from a long way behind to snatch victory in the Y6 800m! Harry Eames, who has really taken to Race Walking, finished a fantastic third in a close fought race. Toby Snowden came fifth in the Long Jump, Esme Naylor came 7th in the Long Jump in a new p.b. & Harvey Rhodes came 6th in the Throw. A massive well done also goes to: Tom Storey, Eddie Mezza, Eddie Banks, Isabel Deakin, Hannah Lewis, Sam Shipley, Alfie Watts & Joseph Perrott. What stars we have!!
The TASS Mini-Olympics is today: Monday 27th June — weather permitting of course! All parents are invited to the event which begins at 1:45pm to around 3:00pm. Children will need their PE kits, water bottles, sun cream (applied before school or sent to apply themselves) plus sun hats (ok, so we like to be optimistic!) Results will be collated once finished & announced just before the children go home at the usual time. Parents are kindly asked not to take children before the end of the school day & are welcome to hang around for the big finale to see who has won! Please come along & support our TASS SUPERSTARS!!
It’s Shakespeare Week this week where children will be finding out all sorts of things about Shakespearean & continuing to put the finishing touches to our whole school production: ‘Shakespeare Rocks’. As you know, tickets are now on sale with performances on Monday 11th July at 2:00pm, plus Tuesday 12th July at 2:00pm and 6:30pm. If you haven’t sent in your reply slips for tickets—then please do as they’re going fast!
As part of looking forward & getting ready for the next school year, children will be taking part in our TASS Passport Day this coming Friday (1st July), whereby they will ‘travel up’ to their new class teacher for the day in order to get ready for September. The Y6s will also be going to their new schools — for the majority, to King Ecgbert’s. The morning will start off with a special assembly & then children will ‘travel’ to their classrooms & spend time getting to know their teacher/s as well as finding out what exciting things they can look forward to. TASS Passport Day Parent Meetings will be starting this week, so please come along to meet your child’s new teacher for September & find out what they can look forward to. This week’s meetings include: New to Y1 for FS2 parents with Miss Cuppitt & Mrs Wilson in support (Tuesday), plus: New to Y5 for Y4 parents with Mrs Soar & Mrs Bradbury (Wednesday) and New to Y2 for Y1 parents with Mrs Scarpello & Mrs Fullwood (Thursday). All meetings are at 3:30-4:00pm. Please see the Passport Day letter sent to parents a few weeks ago or see the side panel of this newsletter for detail of more meetings. We look forward to seeing you!
A massive well done to the amazing team of people headed up by Kelly Lawton & Sally McCann who put on such a magnificent event on Saturday! Thank you so much to everyone who gave up their time, contributed & who came along to make the day what it was! What a fantastic community!
The Governors have their final meeting of the summer term this evening (Monday 27th June). They will be discussing items of business as well as going through the Head teacher’s Report, which gives details on all aspects of school life from assessment data to special events.
Bun & Bric-a-Brac Sale
A group of Y3 boys (Jacob Parr, Hugo Deeks, Samuel Giles, Joseph Blanks, Alex Radbourne-Harris & Daniel Eames) are putting on a Bun & Bric-a-Brac Sale this Thursday (30th June) in aid of the World Wildlife Fund. We wish them well in their efforts & hope that you will support them by sending in children in with money to spend. Many thanks indeed!
As you know, we are always pleased to hear your views & opinions about any aspect of school life. To help us make further improvements, we would be very grateful indeed if you would, once again, take time to fill out the paper copy (which was sent home on Friday with your child). We hope to use this information to give us an overall view of how you as parents & carers feel that things are going, as well as highlight any areas that you feel may have been missed. I would be extremely grateful if you would send your completed paper copy (one per family) as soon as possible, but with a closing date of Wednesday 13th July to the school office, so that the results can be collated & help with our planning for next year. Thank you so much in anticipation!
