Trafford Education Review of St Matthew’s

Last term our school was reviewed by the Trafford Primary Advisors. Now that Christmas has passed, I wanted to pass on to you all how successful the review was. Here are just a few of the headlines:

The pupils’ behaviour is superb and children are polite, respectful and friendly.  Children are clear about the expectations of the behaviour policy and conduct themselves admirably at all times.

Teachers set high expectations of themselves and the children. In the best lessons, pace was effective, the learning pathway was clear and activities were accurately pitched to meet the needs of all learners.

Pupil attitudes to learning are extremely good.

Pupil / teacher and pupil / pupil relationships are very strong, built on mutual respect, tolerance and encouragement.

Pupils spoke highly of the school and were extremely positive about all aspects of school life.  They are clearly confident and articulate children with a strong understanding of the shared values of the school.

The Head and the Senior Leadership Team have embraced the task of moving the school forward with enthusiasm, energy and commitment and have worked tirelessly to ensure improving standards of attainment and outcomes, embracing the challenging context of this school and ensuring outstanding care and guidance for all children.

This great report reflects the hard work of our children and the dedication of our staff. Congratulations to everyone!
