Parent Council

Coming along to our next meeting, on 5th September at 630pm, is an excellent way to find out what is happening in Crown Primary.

Our parent council makes such a positive impact on our school developments and is very supportive of the staff. We would be delighted if you would come along- and bring a friend too!

We meet just once  a term for about an hour and it’s always an enjoyable and informal evening. We really need as many parents as possible to give us feedback on your child’s learning experience. We want the parent council to really represent our diverse parent group.

French Club


French Tuition in small groups commencing  on Tuesday 22 August 2017 in 10 week blocks at Crown Primary school.

A child is highly equipped to learn a new language at this age. Why not help them while it is easy through fun activities, role plays, songs, games…..

My name is Gaelle Patton, I am French and I have been teaching French for over 25 years, and for the last 3 years in Crown Primary.  

During this time I have taught business French to senior executives, delivered one to one coaching to exam candidates run French conversation groups and taught French to children from as young as 3 years old, in small groups. I greatly believe that you can combine learning a language whilst having great fun. Being in a small class of 10 to 12 gives a child the opportunity to speak French, work on pronunciation with a native speaker whilst also giving the child confidence in another language.

It also gives a child an essential grounding and confidence prior to attending secondary school where a second language will be a compulsory element of the curriculum.

Weekly lessons during school term:

Group A: P1 to P3 £5.50per child for half an hour (Payment by block of 10 lessons)

Group A: Tuesday from 3.05pm to 3.35pm in Crown Primary school

Group B: P4 to P7 £8.80 per child for one hour (Payment by block of 10 lessons)

Group B: Tuesday from 3.40pm to 4.10pm in Crown Primary school

If you would like to enrol your child/children then please text or email Gaelle Patton on 07850 741 211 or email on lugandgaelle@googlemail.com
