St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Well Easter is almost here and the weather is getting better and better.

Well done to all the children in Kites and Harriers for their wonderful production, I will never be able to think of Jack and the beanstalk again without talking animals and bad breath.

The children in Merlins have been very busy preparing the Easter Service. I do hope you can join us tomorrow in church.  The service will start as soon as we have walked the school over to church so around 9.20.

A date for the diary – The parents of the children in Kestrels are invited to come into school on the afternoon of Tuesday 14th May for the children to share their learning journeys with them 2-4pm.

The lovely Ed who helps us with choir and the lovely Nicole who teaches piano have started a choir Pennine Voices. This is a Glossop based choir for everyone aged 10-18 with no auditions.  They will be rehearsing on Thursdays 8-9 at Simmondley Primary School.  The first rehearsal is on Thursday 9th May.  If your child would be interested in joining you can register online at or phone 07491992380
