Welcome to the new website for our village school.  

Mattersey Primary School has recently forged links with Everton Primary School, just a short distance away and I am proud to be the Head teacher of both schools.  Children in both schools are already beginning to see the benefits that our new collaboration can bring and such links bring wider opportunities for our children.

Children join us in nursery during the term after their third birthday and we are able to offer flexibility in the way that you use your child's allocated child-care funding.  Please talk to us about this.

We have a popular before and after school club, which offers care from 8:00am each morning and again at the end of school until 6:00pm.  There is a different theme for each evening's activities (see below).

Making sure that every child achieves their very best is our aim - if you'd like to know more, please come to see us!

With warm regards

Paul Higginbottom


The Elizabethan Academy works very closely with Mattersey Primary School and we pride ourselves on being part of their family of schools.

Mattersey Village Show - Saturday 16 July 2016 (provisional date)

The PTFA of Mattersey Primary School have decided to provide an event that is an annual occasion for the community. As a PTFA their vision is to strive to bring the wider community closer to our small rural school. They also strive to bring an upbeat spirit to the community.

As such, the they would like to organise a village show for the people of Mattersey and Mattersey Thorpe and beyond in order to promote their belief that, as a community, they would be better equipped to tackle the challenges that rural-communities face. Recent studies have shown that communities across the UK are more fragmented and provide a lower sense of belonging than that of 40 years ago. A village show will aim to demonstrate how the simple first steps of sharing a cup a tea and a slice of cake can start to change how people feel as part of their wider community.

Around 40-45 years ago, Mattersey held its last annual village show but somewhere through the mists of time this tradition had been lost.  Therefore, the PTFA have decided that 2016 marks a good year to bring back this annual event for the villages of Mattersey and Mattersey Thorpe.   If all goes to plan, once again, the community can enjoy and share a day full of good old fashioned fun and prosperity.

PTFA Relaunch

We are proud to have had the opportunity to relaunch Mattersey Primary School's Parent, Teacher, Friend Association (PTFA).

Members have been working really hard since September organising several fundraising activities for the school including a Spooktacular costume themed Mad Monster Bash plus a Pyjama Non-Uniform Day.

Since Christmas, members have met to discuss several up and coming events including our Queen's 90th Birthday celebrations and our school Summer Fete. The PTFA have also been discussing revamping the school's garden and the children's playground.

If you would like to read the first issue of their newsletter, please look on the PTFA page on this website.  

If you would like to be involved in any of the fundraising activities, please do not hesitate to contact any of the members or telephone school on 01777 817265.
