Our School

‘Let your light shine’

Matthew 5:16

On behalf of the governors, staff and pupils of St Matthew’s CE Primary, I would like to warmly welcome you to our website. We are a two-form entry primary school located in the West Bowling area of Bradford, proud to serve our vibrant community and keen to ensure that our pupils receive the very best education to equip them for both happiness and success in later life. 


At St Matthew’s, our children always come first. We are passionate about delivering high quality teaching and learning, and our committed and energetic team delivers motivating, exciting and challenging lessons across the curriculum. Our children achieve well and make good progress in academic areas, but aside from this we strive to promote their social, physical and creative skills.


Our standards are high and our highly inclusive ethos means that everybody at St Matthew’s is given the support they need to succeed. Strong relationships between all members of the school community allow us to promote positive pupil attitudes, in an environment that is respectful and that celebrates diversity. Our pupils know what is expected of them, and our school community follow the ‘St Matthew’s Way’.


We recognise that the best education is rooted in a strong and supportive partnership between home and school, and at St Matthew’s, our doors are always open to parents and carers.  


We are so proud of all our achievements and I hope that our web site gives you an insight into life here at our happy and nurturing school! If you would like to come and visit us, please contact our School Office.
