Thank you for considering donating to support St Matthew’s Primary School!

Your donation is to the St. Matthew’s PTA (Parent Teacher Association), a registered charity. Donations received in this way are ring-fenced and are either passed directly to the school or (if the school prefers) held by the PTA and used to purchase or commission improvements. The school is always involved in deciding how to spend the money donated. The projects previously and currently being funded are listed on the Home page.

While one-off donations are welcome, we hope you will consider setting up a recurring donation. This gives the school a more predictable stream of donations.

One-off donations from parents, carers, grandparents and alumni are also welcome but to provide the school with security, we are very much hoping most parents and carers will choose to make a monthly donation.

How to donate

To set up a monthly Direct Debit, handled via Charities Aid Foundation (CAF):Donate via CAF

To donate by credit/debit card (monthly or one-off):

Problems or questions? Check our donating FAQ.

Donations will be kept anonymous (your name will not be made public) as long as you ‘Hide your name from public view’ if you choose to ‘Add a message of support’ during the JustGiving process.


Donations via CAF and JustGiving can attract Gift Aid. If you are a higher rate (40%)  tax payer you can also claim back additional tax on donations in your tax return.

Pay As You Earn

You could also enquire about payroll giving via your employer. Our Charity Registration No is 288436. Please email us if you set this up so we know whether to allocate your donation to this campaign or general PTA funds.

Donation matching

A generous parent donor agreed to match all new or increased donations from November 2021, up to a total of £10,000. The matching fund was exhausted in April 2022. If you are interested in funding a matched donation scheme, please get in touch.
