Welcome to PSHE


At St Matthews Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through class & school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society. 

It is delivered to all students at St Matthews  through work in lesson time and a wide range of activities across and beyond the curriculum; pupils gain practical knowledge and skills to help them live healthily and deal with any personal issues they face as they approach adulthood.

St Matthew's School Council

St Matthew's School Council 1

The School Council is a group of pupils elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and raise issues with your headteacher and governors in the school. The school council can also take forward projects on behalf of the pupils, and be involved in planning and things like the School Development Plan, governing body meetings and interviewing staff.

Our School council meet regularly with the Deputy Head Teacher. 


At St Matthew's School we take e-safety very seriously and teach it to children through all lessons where ICT is used, ICT lessons, specific presentations,assemblies and class circle times.
