St. Matthew's C of E Primary School

With God Nothing is Impossible...

Inspectors looked at a range of documentation, including the school development plan, policies, and information about pupils' progress and attainment. They also scrutinised records of how the school sets targets for teachers to improve their work, and looked at child protection and safeguarding procedures.

  • Leadership and management

    "The headteacher provides inspirational leadership. Together with her high calibre deputy headteacher, senior leaders and governors, she has greatly improved teaching and achievement."

  • Behaviour and safety of pupils

    "The care shown to pupils by staff is exceptional. As a result, pupils' behaviour is outstanding and they develop impressively mature attitudes to learning."

  • Quality of teaching

    "Teachers use assessment information consistently well to plan tasks that build on pupils' previous learning. Marking in books clearly shows pupils right through the school what they have done well, and what they need to do next to improve their work."

  • Achievement of pupils

    "The achievement of pupils from all ethnic backgrounds is outstanding. Pupils who arrive in the school speaking little English make exceptionally rapid progress once they have enough English to access the full range of subjects."

  • Early years provision

    "Children make rapid progress in the early years because teaching staff make learning enjoyable as well as purposeful."

  • Congratulations to us all!

    "Please take the time to celebrate, as a family and as part of the school community. We will continue our hard work and commitment to ensure that every child is the light of the world at St Matthew's."
