Aims and Values

At St Matthew’s, our aims and values are rooted in our School Mission Statement:

“Welcome to our happy school, where everyone is valued and given the opportunity to ‘let their light shine.’ With Jesus in our hearts, we encourage love and respect for all. We strive to reach our goals, as we learn, and grow, in a safe and enjoyable environment.”

We aim to ensure that every child who is part of our St Matthew’s family reaches their full potential, leaving our school with life skills that will equip them well as they move on to their next chapter of their journey.

Our inclusive school community works in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders in meeting the responsibility of developing each child in every way – spiritually, emotionally, academically, physically and socially because each child, a unique creation of God and loved by God, deserves this.

We truly believe that, in working together with our parents, parish, community and wider agencies, we can provide our pupils with a safe and nurturing environment to ensure that they reach their goals and always ‘let their light shine.’
