School Ethos & Values

St Matthew’s CE Primary Motto and Vision Statement

Our Motto, “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.

Vision Statement

At St Matthew's our children and families always come first. We grow together in a safe, welcoming community where:

  • caring, compassionate individuals respect people of all faiths and none.
  • we are inspired to learn, succeed and flourish, becoming the best version of ourselves.   
  • As God’s children we shine brightly.      

This is summed up in the scriptural verse,

‘Let your light shine’

Matthew 5:16
