Welcome Back to School for the Summer Term!
We are constantly updating our website. There are lots of reports on events that have been happening at our school.
We have a new toddler play group, The Mattersey Munchkins, started in January and is going really well thanks to our parent volunteer, Mrs Howard. The sessions are every Wednesday during term time between 9am and 11am in our school hall. Everyone is welcome to pop along - refreshments and healthy snacks available too!
If you want to catch up on past activities, look at the drop down box above, labelled Events! We are constantly uploading photos and reports telling you what we have been up to.
If you think you may have missed a letter, look on our Latest Letters...you'll find them all there!
Don't forget you can also look forward to future events, as detailed in our Events Calendar below.
Our Wraparound and Holiday Club provide excellent care for your child both before and after school (other local schools also accommodated) and will always be happy to take expressions of interest for childcare over the holiday periods. So if you are interested, please do get in contact with us. We are more than happy for you to visit and chat to our staff about your requirements.
Please do keep coming back regularly to take a look at what we have been up to.
Thank you for looking!

"Religious Education for All"
RE in Nottinghamshire is changing...
In September 2015, schools in the County of Nottinghamshire were issued with the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, “RE for All”. Through the use of the Syllabus we use RE to enable our pupils to gain insights and knowledge to equip them as responsible members in our society. The Syllabus we follow encourages pupils to discover more about religion and world views on a range of topics. They are encouraged to express ideas and insights into key questions which face all human beings as we travel through life. The three fold aims of RE in Nottinghamshire will ensure that our pupils:
1. know and understand a range of religions and world views which will allow them to recognise diversity which exists in our society.
2. can express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and the impact of religions and world views as they develop their own personal views on a range of issues
3. develop and use skills which will assist them to engage seriously with religions and world views
By following the Agreed Syllabus, RE will contribute to a whole range of school priorities. Their study will promote spiritual, cultural, social and moral development, as well as enabling them to consider British Values such as tolerance and respect for other who hold different world views.
If you would like to know more about the Nottinghamshire Agreed Syllabus a copy is available for you to read in the school or to download below:

Night in the Museum with Caterpillar Class
On Thursday 13 October 2016, KS1 held its very own 'Night in the Museum' with the children enjoying a sleep-over in the darkness of Mattersey Primary Dinosaur Museum, snuggled up in pjs with their favourite teddies and eating popcorn!
Parents soon arrived to tour the dinosaur museum guided by the children. Mrs Dean, Saxon's mum said that she "loved seeing how hard the children have worked, and how proud they all are of their efforts."
