Hello from the PTA!!

A BIG thank for helping the PTA reach their target in 2019/2020 year, we were able to purchase 25 new Ipads for the children as well as a variety of other items.

Fund-raising is done in all sorts of ways including fun / active social events: Golf Day, Pamper Evening, Ice Cream Friday, Christmas Stalls, Quiz with a Twist, Easter Egg Bingo & of course our biggest fundraiser of the year our Walking Day/Summer Fair.

The funds are used in lots of different ways from ongoing annual commitments to Music, Singing, KS2 Pantomime, YrR BBQ and Yr 6 hoodies.

Please come along to any of our PTA Events, everything raised by the PTA goes back to school to help the children.

How Can I Raise Funds?
There are some very simple and easy ways to raise funds:


  • EasyFundraising 
    This is such an easy way to raise funds and doesn't cost you anything. Every little helps and you will be surprised how much those small sums significantly increase.


  • You simply register with EasyFundraising and by doing your shopping on line you would be raising funds for school.  For further details see the Shopping Page on the school website or click on the link:

  • 100 Club
    The 100 Club is an Annual £5.00 Subscription (by Standing Order) to a school fundraising activity.  The members, are allocated a number which is entered into a prize draw three times a year, each giving an opportunity to win cash prizes.  50% of the subscriptions are used for regular prize draws, with the remaining 50% going to the school. Each household can have up to five numbers at £5.00 each per annum.
    Administrator is Liz Morrison who can be contacted through

  • Match Funding
    Some UK companies run a Match Funding Scheme and is a simple way of maximising the fundraising efforts of a staff member. 

    The company will pledge a sum of money relating to the amount their employee has raised for or donated to the charity of their choice. Some organisations will match fund on a £ for £ basis, others will stipulate what they are prepared to give.

    Some companies will also pledge time and resources instead of money, so enabling their employees to support a cause during their working week, or offering a tangible service such as the opportunity to print posters, etc and so on. 

    Could you please check with your Employer to see if they have a scheme in place. We can provide any necessary information you require or if indeed, they would like to discuss any services they could offer with the PTA or Head we would be more than willing to speak to them.

    Stretton St Matthew's PTA is a registered Charity - Charity Number 105823 and all funds are re-invested into Stretton St Matthew's C of E Primary School.
