Life in all its fullness'

St. John's PTA

Our Summer Fair is being held on Saturday 2nd July.  


Please come along and help us raise money for the children,  the money is also going to help fund the year 6 leavers trip/party.


If you can help on a stall, please sign up; the poster is on the wall in school opposite the school office hatch.

This helps us fund the extra treats and trips for the children.


If anyone is good at baking or gardening and can donate cakes or plants, we are having a cake and plant stall.  Donations the day before would be gratefully accepted.


We also need volunteers to help set up at 10 am and help us tidy up at 3 pm.


Thank you for your help.

Your School Lottery 

Top Prize is £25,000

Welcome to St John's CE Primary School, Keele Lottery!  This lottery has been set up specifically to raise money and make a difference for our children!


It's a fantastic way to bring Parents, Carers, Teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with our school and at the same time give something back.  We hope to raise funds that can support and enrich the education of our children.  We aim to provide extra resources for the children, improve the school environment as well as run extracurricular activities such as music, art and sport.


Your support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck!

The Giving Machine


The Giving Machine 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 non-for-profit organisation, the commission you’ve

generated is turned into a charitable donation and is passed onto St John's PTA.

go via The Giving Machine to generate money for our school.




Match Funding

Dear Parents/Carers and Grandparents


We can DOUBLE the funds raised for our school with

Match Funding!

What is Match Funding?

An increasing number of both large and small independent companies operate a Match Funding Scheme whereby they 'match' charity fundraising that their employees are involved with.


This could be the fundraising total for an event, or for the part that their employee has been involved in.

A lot of bigger organisations set aside millions of pounds to fund such schemes and are more than happy to support their staff in raising money for charities of their choice.


Recently, our treasurer secured Match Funding from her employer - Nat West Bank, against the amount raised at our plant sale! (thank you Debbie!)


What do you need to do?

All you have to do is enquire with your Human Resources Department to find out if your employer has a Match Funding Scheme, or if they are willing to match funds at any of our events.

It will only take a quick call or email.


This is a very easy way for you to help us raise extra money for your children to benefit from.


Thank you in advance for looking into this, every little helps! (And yes, Tesco have done Match Funding in the past!)
