St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Congratulations to Kites and Harriers who raised £150 for Mummy’s Star and Reuben’s Retreat, what a great bit of service.

Thank you for all your support of the book fair there was a great buzz around school talking about reading.

I hope the children enjoyed Red Nose Day – they all looked very odd!!

Those of you with children in Merlins and Ospreys I hope you enjoyed Monday Night. I was blown away by the quality of their dances.  They were so proud of themselves for overcoming their fears and dancing on that proper stage. The other schools staff complemented us on the dances and the stories they told.  Well done to everyone involved.

On Wednesday four of our children went to New Mills Leisure Centre to be trained as our change for life champions. I hope they are going to be able to encourage us all to lead healthier lives.

On Friday it is a very busy day:

  • Eagles are leading our assembly
  • It is the dinner Ospreys have chosen for us, chilli I believe.
  • The older children get to see The English Touring Opera
  • The girls continue their football tournament
  • It is scoot and Skate after school.

On Sunday the choir are again in concert, what it is to be popular.

On Monday the NSPCC are in talking to the children about keeping safe. They will be talking about the speak out stay safe programme This is a nationwide programme for every primary-school-aged child in the UK and Channel Islands. With the help of their friendly mascot Buddy, they’ll be presenting an assembly to the children in our school as well as a workshop for Years 5 and 6.  They will also be talking about the underwear rule this helps children understand that their bodies belong to them and them alone.  For more information, go to

Also on Monday the Ospreys are going to the Lowry. This is the trip which was postponed due to the weather.

Eagles are off to Whitby on Wednesday the class is full of excitement and trepidation in equal measure! I know they will have a great time and come back feeling so proud of themselves.

As I am sure you know Mr Cooke is off sick at the moment and likely to be off until Easter, Mrs Grange is covering the class for us. He was always going to leave at Easter and I am very pleased to let you know that Miss Done will be taking over Peregrines after the holiday.  I am sorry for the slightly unsettled time but we are working with the children to keep things as settled as possible.

Remember next week is the last week of the school run afterschool clubs until after Easter.
