Opening eyes, hearts and minds


Dear families of our St. Luke’s children,

We’ve had another busy week here at St. Luke’s.  I’m loving the enthusiasm that the children show up with every day even though we’re in a very long half term and everyone is a bit on the tired side!


We have a very strong tradition here at St. Luke’s of attending lots of different sports competitions.  The children continue to do us proud as excellent ambassadors for the school and fantastic role models for the rest of our pupils.  We have received lots of compliments about how the teams support each other, play fairly and with respect at all times and are resilient when things don’t go the way they want them.  A big thank you to all who competed in the football and rugby games and a big congratulations to the netball team who came top of the Gloospdale table yesterday and as a result are through to the High Peak league in March.

Flu Immunisations

Please see the link below to inform us as to whether or not your child can have the flu immunisation.  This is administered as a nasal spray (unless there is a reason your child cannot have the spray.) The closing date for signing the form is the 17th October.

The immunisations will take place in school on Friday 20th October.

Glossop Jog

Thank you to those who took part in the Glossop Jog on the weekend.  St Luke’s was very well represented and I was impressed with the stamina our youngsters have.  If you were one of the people who took part, please can you return your sponsorship money to the office ASAP.


We have been asked to let you know about the Home-Start initiative.

“Home-Start is a family support charity with two main core beliefs. One is that children’s early years are crucially important; the other is that the best people to help parents who are going through difficult times are other people with parenting experience. We recruit and train parents and match them with families with young children who are really struggling – it could be because of poor mental or physical health, financial hardship, family break-up, domestic abuse – a variety of issues. Volunteers befriend parents and children in regular home visits for as long as they are needed, linking them with any specialist help they need. It really works – and volunteers benefit too, as the training and experience can prove to be a springboard into further training and employment.”  The charity are looking for volunteers to become part of their network.  They are also keen to hear if you need support with anything.  Please see their website for more information.



The issue with us sending emails to Hotmail or msn email addresses still hasn’t been resolved.  Apologies if you are one of the people affected by this. We are still pushing for a fix for the issue.


Wishing you all a restful weekend.


With best wishes

Dear families of our St. Luke’s children,

Harvest Festival

What a lovely start to the week we had at the church for our Harvest Festival.  The children were brilliant and we were treated to a whole host of great performances.  It was heartening to see that so many parents and carers could join us.  We will make sure that we sort out additional seating for any more events that we hold at the church.  Glossopdale Foodbank were thrilled with the donations they received – it was enough to fill two cars and will go a long way in supporting the families that need it.  Thank you so much for your generosity.

Glossop Jog

I’m looking forward to seeing all of our joggers on Sunday 8th October at the Redgra on Pikes Lane at 11am.  Come and find me and Mrs Hillier before the race so we can register you.  Fingers crossed for dry weather. 

Nut-free school

We’ve had a couple of incidences of children bringing in food containing nuts in their packed lunches.  We are a nut-free school as we have people here who are very allergic.  Please can I ask you to make sure that any food that is brought in from home does not contain any nuts at all.  Many thanks for your support with this.


Well done to the children in Year 5 who took part in the bikeability sessions.  I heard nothing but good things from the trainers, both in how well the children did, and also their excellent behaviour throughout the days. 

Brass Lessons

There are spaces available for anyone who would like to learn to play a brass instrument.  Contact Mrs Evans or Mrs Hukin in the office for more information.

School Photos

Don’t forget it’s school photos on Wednesday next week.  Any families with children of pre-school age who want photos taken with their older siblings, please come to the office at 8.30am.

School Email System

We are struggling to send emails to anyone who has a Hotmail or MSN account.  Apologies for this.  We are attempting to get it fixed ASAP.


Wishing you all a restful weekend.


With best wishes

Dear families of our St. Luke’s children,

We’ve had another great week here at school.  Year 6 enjoyed a very successful residential at Whitehall in Buxton at the beginning of the week and I was delighted to hear about how well the children carried themselves throughout it.  They all experienced time in their ‘stretch zones’ and have surprised themselves with what they could achieve.



If you haven’t yet done so, please can we have your completed Seesaw forms returned to us as soon as possible.  We are missing several from each class.


Glossop Jog

We have the Glossop Jog on Sunday 8th October at the Redgra on Pikes Lane at 11am.  This year the Rotary Club are raising funds for the Winnie Mabaso Orphanage in South Africa.  If your child would like to take part, please sign up at the school office or let Mrs Hukin or Mrs Evans know via email ( and they can book you on.

Phonics and Maths Workshop for parents/carers of children in Reception class

We have our workshop at 6pm – 7pm on Thursday 28th September.  Please let Mrs Hillier know if you would like to attend in person or via Teams so we can send out a meeting link to those who can’t be present in person and we can set up the room for the number of adults who will be attending.


The Hallé are holding a series of Family Concerts at The Bridgewater Hall this season. These are fantastic concerts for all ages. The first concert takes place on Sunday 1 October and is entitled ‘What IS an Orchestra?’ Presented by Ruth Rosales, it is a great intro to the orchestra and the different instruments with some popular pieces included in the programme. Please see the link below for details of this and other concerts available.

Wishing you all a restful and peaceful weekend.

With best wishes

Dear Parents & Carers,


I cannot believe it has come round so fast, my last newsletter to you after 13 years at St Luke’s.  I have been so lucky to do a job I love.  I have felt privileged to be allowed to come to work every day and work with your amazing children.  Thank you for all the support you have given me to enable me to work for your children.  We may not all have agreed all the time but I have always known that we are working for the same thing, the best for the children, and we have always been able to work things out.  Thank you for all the help you have given at events, the support at things like concerts and sporting events.  Most of all thank you for your cheery greetings every day.  I am going to miss you all.  I am going to miss your children so much.  I know however that Mrs Rogers is looking forward to taking over in September.  I know she will take the school on new adventures and that you are in safe hands.


I am attaching 3 things.  An offer for a stamp for children’s belongings so when they lose them we can reunite them! This will raise money for the PTA.  And two leaflets about what’s on over the summer.


It wouldn’t be a newsletter without a nag!  Please make sure you pay any dinner money you owe before we finish for summer.


I hope you have a lovely summer.  I wish you all well for the future.

Stay happy and healthy
