About Us

All Saints’ is an average sized primary school which sits in the beautifully picturesque North- West Durham village of Lanchester. One of our main priorities as a parish school, which plays an important role in the life of our community, was to develop our school Mission Statement. We strove to ensure that the children, staff, parents, governors and parish were integral to its formation, acting as stakeholders and providing accountability. We wanted a Mission Statement that encapsulated our beliefs. In 2017, our pupils collaborated to develop a number of potential new Mission Statements and following consultation, ‘Aspire not to have more but to be more. To: love Christ, listen to Christ & learn from Christ’, was chosen. In 2019, we took further steps to develop our identity, linking our House Groups to the values of wisdom, perseverance, peace and learning – the particular attributes of our Northern Saints. Having an identity within a House Group as well as within our school allows everyone to buy into our culture of teamwork and mutual respect.
