At St Matthew's we believe in the importance of prayer as a means of being closer to God. Children have opportunities to pray in daily worship, in class prayer corners, in the school prayer corner and also in our quiet garden. Children also say prayers at lunchtime and at the end of the day. 

Our School Prayer

Dear heavenly Father up above,

Look down on St Matthew’s School with love.

Shower us with happiness,

And shield us from sadness.

Together forever,



Our Prayer Spaces

Each of our classrooms has its own prayer space. Children are also invited to use our prayer space in the hall.




Prayer and Worship

At special times of the year, children are invited to bring their prayers into worship for us to share them together.
