St Matthew’s Primary School in Cambridge is facing a reduction in its funding of £60,000 next year
We are therefore offering parents, carers, grandparents and alumni the opportunity to make regular anonymous donations to a ‘Funding Shortfall Fund‘ that will be ring-fenced by the PTA, a registered charity, for the school exclusively to use to plug its funding gap. Donate here.
FUNDRAISING UPDATE: In the first six weeks of the campaign (to 4th May 2019) we have raised £4,039. Please add your regular or one-off donation to help us fill the £60k shortfall.
We are also running a local campaign to protest against the cuts and plan to join in a national protest. The first protest event was a local march to the Guildhall in Cambridge on April Fool’s Day to protest against the “foolish” cuts. Read more about the event or look at our protests page.
Background reading: Our headteacher, Tony Davies, was recently interviewed in the Observer about the cuts our school is facing. Read his interview here.
