Welcome to the Friends of Cradoc School page.
We are very lucky to have an active Friends at Cradoc. During the year we undertake many FUN, ACTIVE and PROFITABLE activities, including the Summer Fayre, improving the school grounds, running the raffle to indulging in scrumptious food whilst raising money in the Valentine’s Disco! Over the last five years our PTA have raised a massive £35,000 for the school, which has been used to purchase a multitude of items, from ICT equipment, outdoor benches and materials to clocks and transport to castles and science visits. A very big THANK YOU for all that you do! The Friends committee is open to all parents, teachers, governors and friends of the school. We welcome new members at any time. New faces bring new ideas and much needed support in planning and organising our events.
Officers: Chair – Ade Cavanagh, Secretary – Katy Butland, Treasurer – Helen Jones
The 100 Club is an easy way to regularly help the school and have a bit of fun into the bargain. Membership is open to all family, friends, relatives and neighbours of the children at Cradoc School and 3@Cradoc. We hold monthly draws where three winners receive cheques amounting to 35% of the 100 Club income for that month, the other 65% goes to the school to help fund equipment, resources and opportunities for pupils, eg trips, toys and IT equipment etc. The cost is only £5 a month. If you would like to join or know a grandparent, friend or neighbour that might, please ask for membership forms from the office or download them here Cradoc 100 Club Membership forms March 2017
