St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

What a great week we have had!

The new Reception children have all settled into school so well, it is such a pleasure having them here at St Luke’s.

The children in Harriers have started their wider opportunities lessons and are building up to learning the clarinet.

Lucy from Buxton Opera House came in and did some drama workshops. The older children learnt about the history of the opera house as well as trying out a number of drama techniques.

On Tuesday we welcomed the Peace Runners into school. They were welcomed with pictures songs and ideas about peace. They let the children hold the torch and we showed them our torches.

As well as all of that it is bikeability week and children from Merlins and Eagles are learning about how to ride safely on the road.

Clubs start next week, you should get a note confirming which clubs your child is in. Please remember to tell us if they are unable to attend one night or decide that club is not for them. Unfortunately there were not enough children who signed up to Ignite Club so it will not be running.

On Thursday 20th September Mrs Hillier is running a phonics workshop for parents at 3.30. We will be providing a crèche so you do not need to worry about child care.

It is the PTA AGM on Thursday 20th at the cricket club 6.45 for 7.00. The AGM will be brief and followed by a meeting to plan future events and spends. Please do come if you can.

We are very short of spare tights and socks for those soggy moments. if you have any at home you could donate we would be very grateful.

We are always in need of people to be relief cleaners or Midday Supervisors. If you might be available 3.30-5.30 to clean school should one of our cleaners be off or available 12-1.15 to help supervise lunchtimes please let the office know.

Thank you to everyone who is parking considerately and so keeping our children safe. I know everyone wants to get as close to school as possible but parking a bit further away not on the zigzags, across people’s drives or around the gates helps make the drop off and pick up times happier and safer.
