After consulting with staff, pupils, governors and parents about what is important in our school, we have chosen three key words that we believe will support us to make a positive difference to our children. Our children and parents contiributed to a list of words and after a lively debate, three were selected to help towards a three step plan to achieve the best for all individuals!
It is important that all our children aspire to be the best they can be, to set high goals for themselves and to work hard to reach these. Our role, as staff and parents, is to hold high aspirations for our children and to make sure we provide the best support and guidance to enable our children to do well in their lives and learning.
We must have faith in ourselves and believe that we can achieve what we set out to do. We need a positive mind set for this ; to overcome the challenges on route. We endeavour to encourage each other to be confident in their abilities and work together to achieve our best.
We are determined to empower our children to achieve the very best they can. We do this by providing excellent teaching, high quality resources and carefully planned learning opportunities. Our children have their part to play in this as well, by being determined to do their best , in class and with their homework. By working together, we can all hold on to our dreams and aspirations - and make them work for us.
Our School Aims
In the spirit of its Christian foundation, St. Matthias Church of England Primary School aims to provide the optimum environment for the intellectual, emotional, physical, social and spiritual growth of every pupil in its care.
Our school aims are driven by a powerful ethos which aspires to be fully inclusive, treat everyone equally and strive for excellence. As well as delivering a first-class education, it is also our desire to build an interconnected community, recognising that educational needs do not exist in isolation from the needs of the whole person.
