Our Aims

St. Matthew’s aims to provide a centre for excellence for lifelong learning and Christian understanding and welcomes children from all faiths to learn, work hard and fulfil their potential. We will do this by:

  • enabling children to develop to their potential in all areas of the curriculum
  • giving children equal opportunities to have access to a broad and balanced curriculum
  • helping children to develop lively, enquiring minds and the ability to question and understand the world
  • giving each child a sense of self-respect, for self and others
  •  creating a climate where children are safe and happy and all are welcomed and respected
  • setting attainable standards, which will encourage learning and promote self-esteem
  • nurturing children’s spiritual development
