Governors 2021 -2022
When you visit us at St Matthew's you will be greeted by the energising learning ‘buzz’ characteristic of schools where teaching is much more than ‘delivering’ lessons and where learning is not just a matter of ‘reaching or exceeding levels’.
Our children will be eager to tell you about their learning and keen to discuss the latest book they are reading. They will be brimming with enthusiasm and curiosity and they will tell you all about the clubs, the special days and the visits they have experienced. You are likely to bump into child dancers, artists, musicians, writers, singers, mathematicians, sportspeople, scientists, gardeners and scientists.
You will meet a team of committed staff who know their children well, have high expectations and aspirations for every single one of them and are always willing to go that extra mile. Add to that the warmth of a friendly school community with strong shared values and you have something very special. We are a proud team of Governors at such a school and enjoy being involved in helping it to become ever more effective as a place where every child matters.
Do come and see for yourselves, we look forward to meeting you.

What do Governors do?
School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in the schools and its key functions are to:
- set the aims and objectives for the school
- set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
- set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
- monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards the achievement of its aims and objectives
- be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
