St. John's PTA


Welcome Everyone!

On behalf of the Parents and Teachers Association, I would like to say a big hello to all the parents and pupils of St. John’s Primary School. 

The Committee members are as follows-

Chair: Stephanie Hill - Class 3 Teaching Assistant and HLTA.

Treasurer: Mrs Debbie Bennett (child in Class 5)

Secretary: Mrs Claire Welsh - Reception TA (child in Class 5).

For those parents new to St. John’s everyone looks forward to the regular PTA events such as the Summer Fair, Easter Events, Discos, Film Nights, Quiz Nights and much more. The PTA is open to all parents of the school, so please keep an eye on the school newsletter and website for information on meetings and events, as your support is crucial in continuing to fundraise successfully. We are always on the hunt for volunteer helpers, so if you can assist with anything, big or small please see Mrs. Hill


Fundraising is possible due to the continuing support of our parents and families; this deserves a big Thankyou.

We understand that it is very difficult to fundraise at the moment with the country being in lockdown and schools being closed but we are trying our best to diversify and come up with alternative ways to raise vital funds.

We treated the children in school to a virtual pantomime before Christmas which they thoroughly enjoyed. We have also purchased new I.T equipment to be used in school and have upgraded the water dispenser to a contactless one which will be installed soon.


Yuval's Fundraising 

Knowing that the PTA are struggling to fundraise right now Yuval decided to do a cake sale. He ended up doing two, the second of which he was joined by Noa. Overall they have raised £87.

Thank you so much. It was a really thoughtful thing to do.

Bingo Night

what a great night we all had. A big thank you to all who came and supported the evening. Thanks also to Mrs Hill, Mary and Lorraine for organising. We made around £250 profit.

The Giving Machine

TheGivingMachine is based on a simple but powerful idea – making giving free and easy for you.

1. You buy something at an online shop we’ve directed you to.
2. Your purchase automatically generates a sales commission.
3. As a charity and not-for-profit organisation, we turn the commission you’ve generated into a charitable donation and pass it on to your chosen cause.

Please click on the link below, choose St. John's in Keele as your chosen beneficiary and then every time you shop online go via The Giving Machine to generate money for your school.
