Dear All,
I hope you had a lovely Easter. Welcome back to school for the term that always feels like an express train picking up speed as it goes downhill. There is, as ever, lots planned to give your children as many wide experiences as possible. For example:
On Friday 28th April the Kites will start doing some Forest Schools work on site. This is where the children learn outside, as it has been shown to have many benefits. The children will be going out in all weathers so will need suitable clothes such as waterproof coats and wellies if it is raining and warm clothes if it is chilly. I would suggest the children come in school uniform and if it is the kind of day where they need to be dressed in clothing that is not uniform they can get changed at lunch time.
All the children in Kestrels, Peregrines and Ospreys were in Buxton yesterday enjoying the park and the Ballet. The staff at the Opera House asked me to pass on to everyone how outstandingly well our children behaved. They were a credit to you.
The new outdoor play equipment is here and looks amazing. Thank you so much to all of you for raising the money for it. If you would like to pop in at the end of the day to see it, please do.
Swimming starts for the Ospreys on Wednesday 3rd May.
On Thursday 4th May, the children in Key Stage 2 will experience The English Touring Opera.
There will be no family Assembly this Friday 28th April.
Kites are leading our Assembly on Friday 5th May; do join us if you can.
A note for your diaries: there will be NO school led clubs on Tuesday 9th May as the staff are all on internet safety training.
The cricketing season is starting and Glossop Cricket Club will be starting their Friday night coaching sessions on 5th May. Registration for any child from Reception to Year 6 is this Friday (28th April) 6.30-7.30. If your child is interested do go along to the registration as places are limited.
Dates for the term to follow.

Message from the Headteacher

I am Mrs Alice Littlehailes the Headteacher of St Luke’s. On behalf of all the St Luke’s family I would like to welcome you to our website, I hope it gives you all the information you need to gain an insight into our school.

Our school is a friendly, inclusive school where the children learn academic and social skills. Children learn best when they are supported, challenged and interested. Our belief in educating the whole child encourages our pupils to go on to be successful lifelong learners. The creative thematic curriculum and staff’s high expectations ensure there is a buzz of excitement about learning.

The school was built in 1985 and caters for children from 4-11 in 6 classes. The extensive grounds and the layout of the school, around 2 courtyards, enable the children to learn in both indoor and outdoor environments.

The school is part of the local community and the hall is used by both a weekly toddler group and community groups in the evening. The children are encouraged to support both local and international initiatives. The school has a very active Parent Teacher group which organises social and fund-raising events. We have strong links with St Luke’s Church.

The best way to find out more about our school is by visiting us so please phone and make an appointment to come in. We’d love to see you!
