St Matthew’s C of E School is part of a cluster of small schools in the Wigton/Aspatria area. The Headteachers and staff from each of the schools meet, regularly, to share good practice, discuss any current matters of interest, and plan and organise a variety of different opportunities for the children to work together. The children meet, regularly, for sporting events, and also to share experiences and professionals who are brought in with areas of expertise.
St Matthew’s C of E School has also formed links with schools in the wider local area. We have worked with the staff and children from a local Secondary School, namely, Nelson Thomlinson, in Wigton.
We are, currently, looking in to making a link with a school in Brazil through one of our governors/parents.
