Our vision for all at Matthew Arnold

Vision at Matthew Arnold


Matthew Arnold aims for its pupils to achieve their academic potential and progress confidently into the next phase of their education, it is also part of our vision that all children are filled with positive experiences, feel happy and valued and develop a sense of friendship, tolerance and understanding.  Underpinning the above, is our commitment to ensure that the children of Matthew Arnold Primary School possess the values that enable them to live well in society and prepares them to deal effectively with the challenges that the modern world presents.



We recognise that to achieve the aims and values at School, our curriculum needs to be supportive and responsive. Many of our pupils will benefit from

  • Additional social and emotional support
  • A focus on speech and language as well as a progressive vocabulary to assist them in explaining their thoughts and feelings
  • A meaningful focus upon basic skills (reading, writing and basic number)
  • Access to quality resources, trips, visits, visitors

Our curriculum has been shaped to create these opportunities and in turn, supporting our aims and values


We at Matthew Arnold… 

  • Take responsibility for our behaviour
  • Treat others with respect and equality
  • Enjoy learning
  • Feel safe
  • Reach our full potential
  • Celebrate achievement


It is our aim to be a centre of excellence where children and adults are successfully supported and encouraged to discover new horizons and develop their true potential.
