We are delighted that you and your child are joining St Matthew’s CE Primary School this coming September.  On behalf of the staff, governors, children and parents, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your family to our school family.

We hope that the information on this page will answer many of the questions that you have about your child starting school with us in September. We will write to you in the coming weeks with further details about your child’s induction.
