As physical tours will be limited this year, we have a homemade school tour to give you a flavour of the many wonderful things our school does and to give prospective parents a chance to hear from the Reception staff and to see the learning environment.
In addition, we have a more professional version being launched soon.

On behalf of the staff and governors may I welcome you and your family to our school website.
Our school is popular, growing one which is now approaching its sixth year of being open. In that time it has grown rapidly from 75 pupils at the time of opening to over 400 pupils now.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher of this forward thinking church school with a strong Christian Vision and values as well as a passion and drive to ensure that our pupils receive the very best education in order to ensure they can leave us as successful, aspirational, responsible, curious and spiritual citizens. Children are encouraged and given opportunities to 'Let their Light Shine' by achieving their full potential both academically and personally. We strive to ensure all children attain the very highest standards across the curriculum whilst experiencing a wide range of other types of learning.
Our school lies at the heart of the growing community and offers opportunities and activities for adults and children out of school hours. Our early closure on a Friday at 1pm enables us to offer a wealth of extra curricular opportunities to our children. Our breakfast club and after school care clubs enable us to offer extended care from 7.30am to 5.45pm.
We value parent's involvement with a child's education, so offer an open door approach and will discuss any points of interest or concern parents may wish to share with us. This website aims to improve communication and information sharing with parents.
St Matthew’s is a Church of England, primary academy and is part of the growing family of schools from across Plymouth, Torbay and Devon which make up St Christopher's Multi Academy Trust.
If you are looking here with a view to sending your child to our school we welcome and encourage you to visit the school to fully appreciate the quality of education and care we offer.
Mr Chris Conners
