The MATTERS groups are pupil-elected committees with representatives from every class, across the school. They meet termly to discuss issues affecting the school and its community, such as pupil well being, developing the school grounds and contributing to discussions concerning school policies and the continual development of St Matthew's.
A smaller, executive group made up of children from years 5 and 6 meets weekly with a staff member to discuss more immediate planning of activities and events.
Each meeting is fully minuted and is run by the elected senior members of the pupil council, comprising of: Chair, Secretary, Vice Chair, Associate Secretary and Proof Readers. All children are represented by one voice because "IT MATTERS".
