Parents: if your child attends school and they are displaying any symptoms then school will ring parents to tell them to come and collect their child and advise them they need to have a test.
If a parent doesn’t want their child to have a test they will be advised that their child must isolate at home for 14 days. This is following the advice of public health.
So please do not be offended if school contacts you.
This is to help and ensure the well-being of all of our school community.
Dear Parents, carers and visitors,
At St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School, we provide a warm and welcoming community; as a Catholic school, we are deeply aware of the unique nature of each individual and the purpose that each one of us has in following Jesus. Our mission statement encapsulates what we aim to provide:
“Through respect we will work together in Christ to develop the whole person.”
We aim to ensure that all children grow to love their learning, that they are happy in school. We are committed to ensuring that every pupil receives learning that enables them to attain the highest levels of achievement possible and that we provide a stepping stone for a positive future for all of them.
Our warm and friendly atmosphere makes St. Matthew’s a great place to learn, where all children feel safe and develop into responsible young people. They leave us well rounded and caring individuals with a strong sense of community, justice and democracy, ready to continue on their educational journey.
We work hard to empower our children to become respected citizens to enable them to make valuable contributions locally, nationally and globally and to contribute to our world's sustainable future.
Our staff work extremely hard to develop a core curriculum which inspires and excites children. We ask our children to be the best they can be and we do our best every single day for every single child. We have high expectations and aspirations for all pupils to achieve their very best at St. Matthew’s.
We value strong relationships with parents, carers, governors, parishioners and the local community; working hard to create a true community spirit as we understand the importance of working together in order to best provide for all of our children. Our children are happy at school when he/she feels confident and relaxed in the knowledge that staff and parents are supportive and working together for his or her benefit. The key is positive relationships; relationship based on mutual understanding and trust driven by our belief in fulfilling our mission statement.
I hope you enjoy visiting our school website and you gain a feel for school life at St. Matthew’s. If you would like to arrange a visit to our school or speak to myself or a member of our senior leadership team please contact the school office. We would be more than happy to meet you or take you on tour around school so you can experience St. Matthew’s first hand.
Mrs Claire Sime
