Message from Head of School

Welcome to St. Matthew’s C. E. Primary School’s website. Whether you are a prospective parent, student, member of staff, parent or governor, we hope you find the information you are looking for here. We pride ourselves on being a warm and friendly school that welcomes visitors and actively encourages a partnership with parents. At St. Matthew’s Church of England Primary School we are proud to be an inclusive school. We provide a high quality creative and challenging education within a secure, caring and happy environment, where every child experiences a sense of enjoyment and is encouraged to achieve full potential through a love of learning.

St. Matthew’s is a warm, welcoming and supportive school where a great emphasis is placed on all round personal development as well as academic progress. As a Church of England Primary School, our aim is that all children grow in the faith of God and our school motto, ‘Forward Through Friendship and Faith’ helps all of those who are part of St. Matthew’s to understand this.The school dates from 1872. Since that time it has served many generations of young people in the area of Yiewsley with enthusiasm and commitment.

We strive to develop strong links with the Church and Community, where children are encouraged to reflect on their beliefs and learn the meaning and significance of faith. We have a close relationship with the Parish Church of St. Matthew on Yiewsley High Street. Both Church and school serve the same community and efforts are made to foster the relationship between both. The school participates in Church services and events and uses the Church for whole school worship and productions.   Children are encouraged to promote Christian values and show compassion to all. Regular Christian Worship is an important part of life at St. Matthew’s CE Primary School. We also believe that education is a life long process and that whatever children learn at St. Matthew’s will form the building blocks for the rest of their lives. We have built a relevant and carefully constructed curriculum which takes into account the national requirements and the needs of our community and enables all children to develop, providing opportunities for them to achieve high standards.

St. Matthew’s C.E. Primary School is federated with another local Church of England Primary School, Cowley St. Laurence C.E. Primary School. As part of the Federation, we are able to develop high quality teaching and learning so as to give all our children the best possible opportunities in their primary education. 

St. Matthew’s Nursery is part of St. Matthew’s C. E. Primary School and the school values and ethos is continued into St. Matthew’s Nursery. We believe that the year that pupils spend in the Nursery is very important and is the start of the children’s journey in education. The curriculum is designed to enable all children to develop, providing them opportunities to achieve high standards.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website. Please feel free to leave comments in the Guestbook, or contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Thank you for visiting!
