St Matthew’s Primary School is a popular, oversubscribed and happy school full of enthusiastic and well behaved children eager to have fun learning. We are a well-resourced and energetic school which is well supported by parents, governors and the wider community.

Alongside our mainstream provision we host a Behaviour Provision on behalf of the Central Area Partnership (CAP), made up of nine schools.This provision supports children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs that can make full time mainstream education difficult for them. The aim of the provision is to provide an environment, pastoral and educational experience that keeps them moving forward in their learning but focuses specifically on their personal, social and emotional development.

Through personalised learning programmes the provision endeavours to enable children to be fully integrated back to their own school as soon as possible, and equip them with the skills and strategies to be successful in this.

The Provision is based in a purpose built building with full access to all school facilities. The space was designed to enable a personalised, hands on, creative, practical and responsive curriculum so that the needs of individuals could be effectively met in a safe space.
