Welcome to our Ofsted and School Performance Page

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

At St Matthew's, we believe that the best teaching comes from First Wave Quality Teaching. Pupils need to receive good quality teaching every lesson, every day. Interventions are delivered to compliment this high quality teaching that we strive to deliver on a daily basis.
