Friends of Crockerne

Welcome to Friends of Crockerne

Friends of Crockerne (otherwise known as the PTA) is an active group of Parents, Family members, Staff and Governors who meet regularly.  We aim to advance the education of the pupils in the school, purchasing items and equipment that the school may not otherwise be able to afford due to budget constraints.  The current Committee consists of:

Chair – Charlotte Kaszubski

Vice Chair – Wendy Martineau

Co-Secretary – Poppy Coley

Treasurer – Ruth Cotton

Next Meeting will be held on

Wednesday 23rd June @ 8:00pm.

This will hopefully be a face to face meeting to be held at The Kings Arms.  There will also be a Zoom link to the meeting for those wishing to attend but would like to continue to attend remotely.

(Please email us PTA@Crockerne.co.uk if you would like the link)

What do Friends of Crockerne do?

  • Our main aim is to fundraise and purchase equipment and resources to further enhance our childrens learning, development and enjoyment by improving their school experience.  These items can also advance the education of the pupils in the school (e.g. This can include IT devices, play apparatus, theatre trips, and many more provisions.)
  • Our second aim is to run events which the children and parents can enjoy.  If these also raise money for the school then that is perfect! Regular fundraising events include discos, fayres and Easter Egg hunts to name just a few.
