Our Vision Statement
At St Matthew’s CE (Aided) Primary School our Christian vision shapes all that we do. Our intent is to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for every pupil and member of staff in our school. Our school is one based on ‘Individuals working to potential together’ and we are fully committed to developing the unique potential of the individual, within a secure and caring environment where mental health and wellbeing is strengthened, developing lifelong values which enables successful contribution to local community and to navigate an increasingly complex national and global community.
We provide our children with an engaging, exciting and creative curriculum, extending beyond the academic, rooted in our Christian values and TEAM spirit. We will aspire to be an innovative and inspiring learning community, where every individual is provided with the opportunity to flourish spiritually, morally, emotionally, physically and intellectually.
“I can do all things because Christ (Jesus) gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13.
In addition to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing, we aim to recognise and respond to need as it arises. By developing and implementing practical, relevant and effective mental health and wellbeing policies and procedures we can promote a safe and stable environment for pupils affected both directly, and indirectly by mental health and wellbeing issues.
Our pastoral lead is Mrs Wilson who is available to give support and advice on a wide range of well-being matters. Parents can telephone school to make an appointment to speak to her.
Alternatively, parents can always talk to Class Teachers or Senior Leaders if they prefer.
