St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I cannot believe this is the last newsletter of this academic year it doesn’t seem two minutes since I was welcoming you in September! Thank you all so much for this year and all the support you have offered the school. Without your support the education we could offer the children would be so much poorer. The children have achieved so much this year, experienced so much this year and enjoyed so much this year.

Congratulations to the children in Eagles and Merlins for the quality of their work in the production this week. The acting and singing was of a very high standard and the stagecraft shown was outstanding.

We welcomed the police into our assembly on Wednesday, they came to talk about keeping safe across the summer holiday. They reminded the children about water safety, not playing in derelict buildings or building sites and not getting so distracted by their mobile phones that they don’t notice roads.

Today is a busy day with Kestrels and Peregrines having a pirate day and everyone getting involved in a maths challenge day.

On Friday the choir will be donning their wet weather gear and taking part in the Buxton Fringe. They will be going to a performance at the Opera House and then performing between 1.30-2.30 either outside the Opera House or just inside the Pavilion Gardens. Do come and support our performance if you can.

Next week we are having our meet your new teacher session on Monday.

On Monday it is also the PTA Disco 5-6.30pm Do put your glad rags on and join us.

On Tuesday, the last day of term, it is the leavers assembly where we are entertained by the Year 6s as they celebrate being ready to move on to Secondary School. They also have leaver’s lunch at lunchtime. The leavers do is at Pizza Express. The Year 6s can go home get glammed up and meet us at 5pm.

Thank you again to everyone who supported the summer fun event you raised £695 whilst having fun.

A few reminders; bikeability letters need to be back for children in Y4&5 who would like to take part in this important safety event. Whitehall letters for children in Y5. Fruit money for children in Key Stage 2 next year needs to be in and please pay any dinner money debts.


I hope you all have a lovely summer and I look forward to seeing you all back at school on Wednesday 4th September. The new Reception children start on Thursday 5th September.

Dear Parents,

Thank you to everyone who helped at or supported the Summer Fun event I believe it was great fun. I am sorry I was not able to be there.

Congratulations to the girl’s cricket squad who performed well at the county final and were a credit to the school. Can I take this moment to thank all the parents who have made it possible for the children to attend so many sporting events. We could not do it without you.

This week we have welcomed visitors from the DFE who came to see us because of the work we do on being an inclusive school and supporting all children. We feel very honoured to have been chosen for this visit, not because we get it right all the time because we don’t but because it is recognition that we are always striving to meet everyone’s needs.

Tomorrow the Kestrels are leading our assembly and next Friday 19th July the Peregrines will take the lead. You are all welcome to our Friday Assembly.

Next week is the Y5&6 production of Treachery at Traitor’s Quay if you haven’t ordered your tickets yet please do.

On Friday 19th the choir are going to Buxton Opera House in the morning and are then singing as part of the Buxton Fringe between 1.30-2.30 hopefully on the Opera House forecourt, if we are not allowed to be there just round the corner in the Pavilion Gardens. If you are available please do come and support us at what is always a lovely event.

We are reaching the end of the school year and this year there are a number of members of staff whom we are saying goodbye to. Mrs Radford and Mrs Jones are retiring after many years’ service. Mrs Howe has been promoted so will be leaving our kitchen and Mrs Lamb has taken up an exciting position in another school. We wish them all well with their next step. If anyone would like to make a contribution to a leaving present for any of the staff leaving please send it into the office in a labelled envelope.

If your child is in Kites, Harriers, Eagles or Merlins next year and they would like fruit remember to send in their slip and money.

Not everyone has returned their blue permissions letter please can you as soon as possible.

Please can you remember to pay all dinner money debts.

The last disco of the year is on Monday 22nd July.

On Tuesday 23rd July there will be the leaver’s assembly, leaver’s lunch plus their leavers party at Pizza Express. It is also the last day of term.

Dear Parents,

My apologies for the shortness of this newsletter but I hope I have remembered all the really important things!

Thank you to everyone who supported the summer concert, it was a lovely event.

Speaking of lovely events the summer fun day is almost here and excitement is building. I hope you are all able to stay after school on Friday, or come specially. It should be great fun and a chance for everyone to enjoy being together.

Remember it is Harrier’s Assembly tomorrow and Kestrel’s Assembly on Friday 12th please do join us for these family assemblies.

Next week is the last week of school led after school clubs.
