School Ethos & Values
St Matthew’s CE Primary Motto and Vision Statement
Our vision statement, “Growing together, we learn, succeed and shine brighter,” is evident in every aspect of school life and brings together all stakeholders within the school community.
Rooted firmly in the teachings of Jesus Christ, we grow together as we respect people of all faiths and none and aim to provide the best opportunities for all members of our community to excel both in their learning and in their development as caring, loving and compassionate individuals. As God’s children, we are all inspired and challenged to succeed, achieve our potential and to shine brightly in our own unique way as we travel on our journey together. We encourage everyone to nurture light in those around them and support others to find their own light.
This is summed up in the scriptural verse, ‘Let your light shine’. (Matthew 5:16)
