School Development Plan

Our School Development Plans

St Matthew’s CE Primary School provides an attractive and stimulating environment which has a warm atmosphere where children feel secure and happy. The School’s main purpose is to develop each child’s full potential in all areas, irrespective of race, religion, ability or gender, through the highest quality of teaching and learning. We endeavour to provide the best in all aspects of school life through the care, investment and value we place on all staff, pupils and parents.


St Matthew’s CE Primary School is a caring Church of England school, enthusiastic for everyone’s success. 

Our aims are:-

•for every child to be happy and successful

•to have high expectations for each member of the school community

•to model a strong moral code



.   Key Improvement Priorities

  • Priority 1 – Achievement of Pupils – improving pupil attainment and progress & ‘narrowing the gap’

  • Priority 2 – Quality of Teaching - preparing the school for the introduction of the revised curriculum

  • Priority 3 – Quality of Leadership & Management – develop curriculum leadership roles


Raising standards:

  • We wish to see 100%+ of our Year 6 children achieving Level 4+ in both English and Maths before they transfer to high school.
  • We wish to achieve above 97.6%+ attendance each year.
  • We wish to improve the quality of the learning environment throughout the Foundation Stage, KS1 and KS2 to promote high standards of safety, behaviour and achievement.
  • We wish to develop leadership and management.
  • We wish to give each voice within the school community the opportunity to shape the future of our school.
  • We wish to improve communication throughout the school community, our local community, our British and European communities and global communities.
  • We wish to promote the school's website as a hub for sharing up-to-date information.


At St Matthew’s CE Primary School we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all children.  In line with the specific duties which must be in place for schools and local authorities we have collected a range of information showing how we are meeting the three aims of the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations in relation to age (as appropriate), disability, ethnicity, gender (including issues of transgender, and of maternity and pregnancy), religion and belief, and sexual identity .
