Welcome to St. Matthew’s CE Primary school.
Our school is situated in South Street in Ponders End, within the parish of St. Matthew’s. We also have an annex on Dyson's Road in Edmonton for another three classes. We are home to 290 happy children, who are at the forefront of all the things we do in the school.
The main school is on a small but attractive and well-maintained site. Its original school hall dates back to 1838 but the rest of the building has been considerably modernised and expanded since then. The school has close links with the Parish Church of Saint Matthew, which lies adjacent to the school. The school is well regarded in the community as a close knit family school where children are happy and make good progress. The school has a strong Christian character and very strong links with the church.
We also offer a wide range of clubs for children in all year groups. These include a range of sports clubs, as well as a choir, arts and crafts, homework club and many more.
We also have a breakfast club and an after school club. For more information about these, and for information on applying for a place at our school, please contact the school office.
Please use the links below to find out more about the school.
At St. Matthew’s School we are fortunate in having an excellent team of both teaching and non-teaching staff. We have a teaching team of thirteen, who are responsible for planning, teaching and learning and assessment in their classes.
Our parents are an integral part of the close-knit community at St Matthews and are very supportive of each other and of all the activities, events and initiatives in the school.
