Governance Structure     

St Matthew’s Church of England Primary School is a voluntary aided school, founded in 1891. It was built to serve the local community and is closely linked to St Matthew’s Parish church which is in the Anglican Diocese of Blackburn. We welcome children from many faiths and nationalities. A high percentage of the children join with little or no spoken English. We aim to provide a safe and secure environment for the education of every child. 

We have a Governing Board consisting of 12 members of varying backgrounds ncluding Foundation (from St Matthew's Church), Parent and Staff.
