"Christian values are at the heart of all the school does. The school's motto is Everyone is special. The co-headteachers have created a school community with a real family feel. Staff regularly go the extra mile to keep the pupils safe and happy. They also provide fantastic support for pupils families.  Pupils enjoy their lessons. They work hard and want to do well."

"Staff have high expectations for every pupil . No one is ever written off ’’. They want each pupil to be their best in everything... Teachers are working hard to make every subject even
better. Relationships across the school are warm and nurturing."

A link to the full report is at the top of the page.

Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools says:

Burley St Matthias is a GOOD school with OUTSTANDING Leadership and Management

"The school describes itself as the Burley St Matthias family and this is evident in the warmth of the relationships between all members of the school community. Parents of diverse religious backgrounds uniformly assert that the school’s Christian ethos underpins the fact that everyone ‘goes the extra mile’ to support learners and their families."

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Update 22nd May

Letters have been sent out today to all those invited to return to school, if the government gives the go ahead, from 1st June.  This is pupils in Reception, Years 1 and Year 6 and those with parents who are key workers or those who have been identified as particularly benefitting from being in school.

A thorough risk assessment has been done and is supported by both governors and H&S officers from Leeds City Council who came to sschools yesterday to check our arrangements. 

The risk assessment is available here.

Please note MONDAY 1ST JUNE WILL BE A TRAINING DAY FOR STAFF. If you read the risk assessment, you will understand why! 

Parents Questions

You asked lots of questions in our recent survey.  Hopefully you find your question and our answer here.

Update 16th May

Please watch this 20 minute explanation (with pictures!) of the planning for school reopening from June 1st (above).  It may take a while to download.  If you can't see it, the information is also here.

THEN:  Please complete this survey for each of your children.

Please encourage all your friends with children at the school to access this communication.  It is vital we get a response for each child in school.

Thank you.

Update 12th May

The government has asked us to prepare to welcome children in Years Reception, One and Six back to school starting from the 1st June.  Guidance has been issued about how schools are to manage this and there is guidance for parents here.

We are working on our reponse to these plans but don't want to communicate these with you before we are clearer about how we propose it will all work at BSM.  Thank you for your patience.

In the meantime, school remains open for all pupils identified as children of key workers or 'vulnerable'.  We need to match our staffing levels carefully to the number of children in school on any given day so it is essential that you give us 3 days notice if you wish to access childcare differently.

Update 7th May

School will be closed for the Bank Holiday tomorrow as no families have requested childcare.  If your circumstances change and you find you do need care you can access this via



Update 19th April

Welcome to the start of the summer term!  If you haven't got into a routine for a bit of learning each day yet, then now could be the time to start.  Learning can look like lots of different things and it's important to work out what works for your family.  There is more information about our planning for the summer term on the main schools closure page here.  We are trying to provide more structure and links to the BBC offer which gives you more chance to access good quality resources through the TV red button as well as using a computer.  Paper based packs as a last resort need to be ordered through the link on a text message already sent out.

We are also launching class blogs for every class as a more secure way for children to keep in touch with each other and their teachers.

For parents will children eligible for benefits related Free School Meals, the National Voucher Scheme which we hoped to start using (it gives you more choice of supermarkets) has been completely overwhelmed and is still not working properly.  We have therefore purchased a further 2 weeks of vouchers, for which you should get an email early this week.  After that we HOPE to move to the national scheme!

Update12th April

Wishing all our families a happy, blessed and safe Easter. Whatever you celebrate today, we are One People.

Hello from the new 'Superhero School' as named by the children on Monday 23rd March. Please see here for a parents' 'Survival Guide' to managing Learning at Home.  We know it's not easy!

We have a new school email account for sending in pictures or messages which we will then post on our website so the kids can see what each other are up to.  Please don't send anything you are not happy for us to publish. Email:


We have created a dedicated tab for school closure information (see left).  There is a general tab, tabs for each year group, a tab for SEN pupils and a further tab with even more ideas.  There is also a Superhero School tab now so you can keep up with what we have been doing in school.

Children have already been sent home packs of work.  If you are starting to run out and can't print things out at home, get in touch on the new email address: superheroes@burleystmatthias.co.uk and we will endeavour to get something in the post for you.

Letters to parents which have been sent home  are available to download here if you need them:
