Welcome to St Matthias
Dear Year 11 Parent, Prospects the company who collect destinations information for the Local Authority want to send your child a short survey to fill in regarding their college / sixth form plans and to request contact details so that they can confirm accepted places in September and monitor progression. To do this the school needs to provide them with your child's school email address. This will be done on Friday 5th March. If you have objections to this being shared or your child completing the survey, please contact the school to opt out no later than Tuesday 2nd March.
A powerful way to keep your child learning is through reading. Here is a link to a virtual school library in partnership with the National Literacy Trust Virtual School Library | Oak Academy (thenational.academy). Each week a popular children’s author will provide a free book, exclusive videos and their top three recommended reads.
We are rewarding our students who have been working hard and engaging with their online learning. Each week we will be awarding learners of the week for students from each year group. Your teachers will be nominating the students who are working hard and engaging with their online learning. Names will appear on our website and will be updated each week.
Our school works to improve the lives of individuals and families in our community.
To do this we will help each young person develop knowledge and understanding, a positive attitude to themselves and others and the skills to help them enjoy a successful life.
Our approach should always be respectful and kind as we challenge ourselves to be better teachers, parents, students and members of our community.
