September Instrument Lessons available

Date: 30th Jun 2016 @ 10:12am


If your child is interested in trying a course of instrumental lessons, please visit www.musicforlife.org.uk/apply-nowInstrument lessons at Crowton School are provided by Music for Life - a not-for-profit music education service working in partnership with 130 schools to teach almost 4,000 pupils every week across Cheshire, Wirral and North Staffordshire.

Music for Life can accommodate almost any child who books a course before the summer because it designs a new timetable from scratch every year to do so. After that, additional places may be available during the year but they tend to be more limited. It is important to note that anyone wishing to try a course of lessons in September needs to book before the end of this term (certainly before August) to be sure of a place when school reopens. 

Courses of lessons can be paid for in full or in monthly installments in a variety of ways including by debit or credit cards. Music for Life has developed a website to make it easier for parents and guardians to book, renew and pay for instrumental lessons online. Financial support with the cost of lessons may be available in cases of hardship. Please contact Music for Life before booking if you would like to discuss.

Involvement in music offers young people something very special. 130 schools, together with thousands of parents, young people, professional musicians and music teachers would tell you they feel Music for Life offers something special, too! Music for Life exists to engage children in high quality music making and to nurture and develop an interest many will have for life.

We are proud to have had the opportunity to work with some amazing young people over the last 21 years and hope that your child may join us soon!

Do check things out at www.musicforlife.org.uk/apply-now.

Best wishes

Music for Life Team

PS. Don't forget to book a place before the summer holidays for lessons to start in September!

A Place of Safety by Gripping Yarns

Date: 1st Feb 2016 @ 3:28pm

On Monday 1st February Classes 2, 3 and 4 received a visit from Gripping Yarns, an association of storytelling performers who are all actors with an expertise in theatre for young people. They delivered a story called 'Place of Safety' to support our work on internet safety and link to Safer Internet Day on 9th February.

The internet, mobile communications and e-mail offer young people unprecedented and exciting  opportunities to explore and interact from the safety of their own school, home or bedroom. 'A Place of Safety' is concerned with how children interact in  the electronic communication environment, and with how they  can do so with greater security.


Place of Safety tells the story of Jordan, who is struggling to build new friendships after moving school following a necessary family separation.  For Jordan, the internet, e-mail, chat and messaging offer an ideal way to keep in touch with old friends, and make new friends with interests similar to his own.  He is befriended by an apparently more experienced chat room user, with whom he develops a friendship, and with whom he shares personal information and photographs.  His trust in his new friend diminishes as he is pressured to allow greater degrees of contact and more personal information.  Having already taken risks with his online friendship, he is too scared to tell anyone what has happened in case he gets into trouble and he is considering agreeing to his new friend’s requests when a real-life friend from school uses online media to contact him, and encourage him get help from their teacher. 


Place of Safety was written for Cheshire Education Safeguarding in Education to promote safe use of the Internet and electronic communications media, encouraging children adopt an attitude of healthy scepticism towards what people tell them online, whilst stressing that using the Internet can and should be great fun.
