Friends of Cradoc (PTA)

Welcome to the Friends of Cradoc School page.

We are very lucky to have an active Friends of Cradoc (PTA).  They hold social meetings early each half term, usually in a local pub, to enjoy the social occasion and to plan the many FUN, ACTIVE and PROFITABLE activities that take place each year, including the Summer Fayre, Cradoc’s Got Talent, Easter Bingo, Valentine’s Disco, improving the school grounds etc, often indulging in scrumptious food!  Have a look at our presentation to see more.  PTA Presentation.  The Friends is open to all parents, teachers, governors and friends of the school.  They welcome new members at any time.

100 Club

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

So how does it work?

You shop directly with the retailer as you would normally, but if you sign up to http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/cradocschool for free and use the links on the easyfundraising site to take you to the retailer, then a percentage of whatever you spend comes directly to us at no extra cost to yourself.
