Visions and Values


Mission Statement


St Matthew’s is proud to be a Church of England Aided school for the whole community. Based on a belief in Christian values and principles, we educate our children in a safe, inspiring, supportive and inclusive environment.



What do we stand for?

We believe that every child has the potential to learn and develop, when nurtured with love and understanding. We promote the values of respect, equality, honesty and forgiveness and we strive for excellence in everything we do.



What do we do?

We create a welcoming and caring environment where each child is given opportunities to explore, question, reflect and learn. Through modelling Christian values, such as justice and compassion, we equip children for the future. Supporting them on this learning journey enables them to become independent, resourceful and unique members of the community.



Why do we do it?

We strive to make a difference to the life of each child by giving them the life skills needed to contribute to a diverse and changing society.


By celebrating the diversity within the school community and having a ‘whole child’ focus, we want to develop each child academically, creatively and spiritually so that they become confident and positive individuals.




At St Matthew’s we aim to:


  • Motivate children to become responsible members of their communities.


  • Inspire a love of learning, enquiring minds and independent thinking.


  • Nurture children’s respect for themselves and others around them.


  • Develop an understanding of Christian beliefs, character and values.
