Welcome from the Headteacher
On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I welcome you to St Matthias School.
We are a welcoming, inclusive family school with a strong Christian ethos, a sense of community and a commitment to excellence for all children in our care. We aim to ensure that each one of our children feels safe, and is enthusiastic, secure and confident. We do this by nurturing each child’s uniqueness and responding to individual needs. We want each child to be successful in their learning and to make a meaningful contribution to the world.
We are extremely proud of our school and the achievements of all of our children. In our last Ofsted inspection we were graded as a good school in all areas. Many of our children achieve very highly and we ensure that every child makes good progress in their learning.
We are committed to providing a stimulating and motivating learning environment, one that equips and prepares our pupils for the 21st Century. We believe that everyone in school should enjoy their learning and feel proud of their achievements. To fulfil this, we will provide a curriculum which gives equal value to developing children’s academic, social, physical and spiritual understanding. Our aim is to prepare every child so that they can make a positive contribution to the society in which they live and that they can function in the fast changing world in which they find themselves. Through fostering a lifelong love of learning, we hope to help our pupils to live a full and happy adult life.
We strongly value the relationship we have with our parents and recognise that effective partnerships are essential. We appreciate and value the support our parents give us and the role they play in enriching our children’s experiences and supporting their child’s education. Parents are always most welcome into school to help or to discuss their child’s progress or any matters of concern. Should you require support with a personal or family related issue, you can make an appointment with the school office to meet with our Extended Schools Social Worker, Helen Davis.
We look forward to working in partnership with you.
