St. Matthias is a school where children and adults think carefully and aspire to make the right choices in all they do.
Children learn best when they are happy, confident and secure in the knowledge that they are appreciated and valued. As a Church School our Christian beliefs and values underpin everything we do. As such, we seek to promote a caring community at St. Matthias in which responsibility, consideration for others and politeness are highly valued and encouraged. To maintain this purposeful working environment we have high expectations of everyone working in the school.
We believe that good behaviour is at the centre of our happy school and essential for successful teaching and learning. Teachers cannot teach effectively and pupils cannot learn effectively in classes disrupted by poor behaviour.
At St. Matthias CE Primary School, we believe that for all members of the school to be able to follow our school rules, they should be clear, concise and ingrained in the life of the school. To achieve this, we have three simple rules:
All members of the school community; children, staff, parents and visitors, are expected to observe these rules consistently.
Parents, carers, teachers, support staff, pupils and governors all have a role in helping to establish and maintain good behaviour. At St. Matthias, we ask that everyone working in the school promotes and follows our school values.
