St. Matthew’s Friends and Family are a very important part of our school family. They work to raise money for our school and children by organising events throughout the school year. Their amazing work helps us fund lots of exciting projects around school.

The FAF has had another fantastic year raising approximately £3000 by organising our Annual events. These events include 3 fairs, St Matthews Bake Off and the Christmas gift sale. These successful events would not happen without the support of Parents, your contributions, donations and attendance to events is much appreciated.

Many thanks to all the committee for the time and effort they put in organising events and attending meetings and to Mr Johnson and Staff and Governors for their support throughout the year. It is the team approach that makes the experience enjoyable and successful.

The funds raised this year have contributed towards School trips, new School Library, ice-lollies for sports day, Year 6 leavers’ dictionaries and an ice-cream van for the end of the year. With money already raised and in the new School year we hope to help fund the new bike shelter and garden area.

I would like to say a big thank you to Emma Entwistle and Vicki Connolly for all their support, commitment and hard work they have given over the years that they have been involved in FAF.

We are always looking for new volunteers to help with FAF. If you feel you would like to get involved in any way please get in touch.

Thank-you for your continued support
