News of Family Learning events

At St Matthew’s Academy we believe that parents/carers and families are by far the most important influences in a child’s life. Your support can play a vital role at all stages of education. It is proven that children do better when parents/carers and schools work together.

Parents/carers who take on a supportive role in their children’s learning make a difference in improving achievement and behaviour.

Our aim at St Matthew’s is to help parents/carers feel involved with their child’s education and learning, to feel welcomed as an active participant in the life of the school and to feel comfortable expressing their views on their child’s education.
