Church School inspection - Excellent

On 29th October 2019 an inspector came to St Matthew's to conduct a SIAMS visit - Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools. She spent time talking to the children, visiting classes, meeting with parents, teachers and governors, in order to assess our effectiveness as a church school. I'm delighted to let you know that we received an overall judgement of EXCELLENT. The inspector said that St Matthew's is "a shining example of a Church school" and that "pupils talk confidently and with passion about how everyone in the school lives out the vision and how the values support that".


You can find a full copy of the report in the SIAMS section of our website.
