Welcome to St Matthew's Church of England Primary School

A very warm welcome to our school website which we hope will give you a good insight into the daily life of our school. 

St Matthew's is a school family, we work closely with our families and local community to provide an education which is rooted in Christian values and seeks to provide the very best for each child so that they can have every opportunity to learn well and develop a lifelong love of learning. We serve a rich and diverse community consisting of many different cultures and faiths.

Our work here is underpinned by our Mission Statement and reflected in our Vision Statement for all members of our school family. 

Mission Statement:


“St. Matthew’s C.E. Primary School is dedicated to providing an education which enables every child to fulfil his/her best potential.  It seeks to promote academic, emotional and spiritual growth in a Christian environment, welcoming children drawn from diverse cultures”.


Vision Statement:


Inspired by Jesus’ words (Matthew 5: 1-12), we strive to promote academic,

emotional and spiritual  growth in a Christian environment

for all members of our school family.

We can all ‘Be blessed by God, be happy and aspire to be…’
