St Luke’s Newsletter


Dear All,

I am so sorry I have had to close the school today, for only the second time in seven years, unfortunately nothing I can do about Gas Pipes!

Tomorrow is Christmas Dinner day so I am glad the engineers think they will have finished the job today so school can open tomorrow.

Well done to the children I Peregrines and Ospreys who put on an out of this world performance this week and thank you to you for supporting them.

Wow what a fantastic Christmas Fair the PTA put on, on Friday. Thank you to everyone who supported it by volunteering or coming and spending money.  It provisionally made about £1,200 so well done to all.

Congratulations to our swimming squad who came first in the gala, what lovely little fish!

On Sunday the choir are taking part in the Carol Service at St Luke’s Church. They need to be there by 6.15, not 5.45 as I said on the letter.  For some reason I had it in my head that it was starting at 6 rather than 6.30.  Please can they come in school uniform.

On Monday it is Merlin’s and Eagle’s party on Tuesday Kites and Harriers party on down and on Wednesday it is Kestrels, Peregrines and Ospreys turn. On their party day the children can come in party clothes or bring them with them to get changed at lunchtime. All I would say is remember they are having a normal morning in school so their clothes need to be suitable to work in and more importantly play out in.

On Thursday it is our Carol Service which will start at about 9.20ish, it depends how long it takes us to come across from school. The children in kestrels will be dressing up as part of this service so we would ask them to meet us at church in their costumes (which we will send home) at about five past nine.  Please can they bring their uniform to change into in a named bag.  The naming is really important as matching all those children to unnamed uniform is a real headache.  I would also ask that the readers and the choir meet us at church at 9.05.

If your child is in Key Stage 2 and would like to have fruit next term you need to return the letter by Wednesday. We cannot guarantee fruit for children whose parents have not returned the slip.

If you have any dinner arrears please pay these as soon as possible. Dinners need to be paid for in advance.  If you are having difficulty paying for school meals contact the office as you may be eligible for free school meals.

We finish for Christmas on Thursday 21st and school reopens on Thursday 4th January.
