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.


Thank you to all of you who are donating so generously! You have donated


in the first ten weeks of this campaign (to 4th June 2019).

The amount you are giving each month is growing.

Please add your regular or one-off donation to help us fill the £60k shortfall. We are aiming to reach regular donations totalling £5,000 each month.

St Matthew’s parents are also running a local campaign to protest against the cuts. 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.
