It is my pleasure to welcome you to St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School.
St Matthew’s School is proud of its Catholic heritage. The teachings of Jesus Christ underpin our philosophy. The school provides an atmosphere that is warm, inviting and accepting of all people, where gospel values are seen to be lived. The education of our children in their faith is the primary purpose of our school.
Our philosophy embraces the understanding that each student is an individual. We therefore provide a curriculum that is engaging, stimulating, challenging and caters for a wide range of abilities and interests. We strive for every child to reach their true potential.
Our school is blessed by being well-resourced, in having large playing areas and spacious well-maintained buildings which enhance the learning environment for our students. More importantly we are blessed with a highly professional and positive staff who are committed to meeting the needs of all students to ensure they are prepared for life-long learning.
As a staff we see it as vital that we work together with you, the parents. We acknowledge the fact you are the first educators of your children and that the school, together with the Parish, supports parents in the responsibility of helping faith to grow in young people. Parent involvement is encouraged in many different areas through our school. St Matthew’s belongs to all of us, Students, Parents and Staff. It is our school.
For prospective parents, we hope then, that in partnership, we can work together, as you entrust your child’s safety and future education to the community at St Matthew’s.
