St Luke’s Newsletter


Dear All,

Welcome back it is lovely to see everyone after the long summer break. Also welcome to all our new children and parents, not only do we have the lovely Reception children starting today we have also welcomed children across the school.  I am sure you will already have spoken to the new parents in the playground.

The children have made a good start with fantastic hustings for the elected positions in school. The speeches the children made were well thought out and delivered with passion.  It is going to be so hard to decide who to vote for.

Thank you to everyone who sent in old red uniform for us to donate to a school in Nigeria, if you still have uniform to send in please do it by next Friday as we want to get it sent off.

Friday Assemblies are family assemblies where everyone is welcome to join us. They start at about five past nine.  After this week’s assembly the PTA are holding a meeting to welcome new parents and talk about the coming year.  If you are new to the school or not please do stay for this get together, there will be cake.

The staff very generously give up their time to run clubs after school. We will be sending out a separate letter about these. If your child in interested in attending any of the clubs please fill in the slip below and return it to the office. The clubs will start the week beginning 18th September.

There will be toast tomorrow. On Fridays we offer the children the treat of toast at break time for 20p. This is a way of making a bit of money for school and everyone looks forward to it.  Very kind parents come into school and cook the toast for us.  If you are free on Friday mornings and would be willing to butter (well marge) hundreds of slices of toast please let us know.


I am attaching the list of dates for this term, as ever some dates may change and extras events will be put in so do keep an eye on the newsletter.
