Welcome to St. Matthew’s N.S.

St. Matthew’s strives to provide a safe, welcoming, nurturing and happy environment in an inclusive and child-centred community. Our core values of respect, kindness, honesty and integrity underpin all we do.

St. Matthew’s is a co-educational primary school under Church of Ireland patronage. We operate under Department of Education and Skills guidelines and curricular content. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive, happy, child centred school.

In our school community we aspire to promote a structured caring and nurturing environment where each child is encouraged and motivated academically, socially, and spiritually to become a responsible happy individual and reach their full potential. This environment is created by encouraging mutual respect and tolerance, by the attention given to each child in our care, by identifying children’s individual needs, by encouraging our pupils to learn at their own pace and through close home-school cooperation.

On our school website you will find information about our school, its pupils, staff and management, as well as school policies and procedures. We hope that this website will give you a sense of our school as a community of learners where all are valued and affirmed.
