St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

What a beautiful sunny week it has been. With the improving weather can I remind you to apply sunscreen to your child before school and send them in with a hat.

It is sports day tomorrow and the forecast is perfect dry with some cloud cover. All the children need to have sports kit in school (Please can the Kestrel’s come dressed in their sports kit and bring their uniform to change into later). They do not need to bring drinks as we provide them. Parents are invited to come and watch, we will start at about 9.15 on the top field. The format of the morning is that we start with sporting stations the children go round in their houses followed by some races. During the races can I remind you that parents need to stay back from the track and at the side, we would like all the children to enjoy the morning and not be intimidated by the crowd. The children from Miss Nicholls’ new school Biggin will be joining us at some point over the morning.

The children are very excited about our new goal posts, thank you very much to the Sales-Jones family who donated them.

Over the next month we are very excited to have been chosen to work with a professional film maker to make a film for ‘The Mighty Creatives’ about the importance of arts and pupil voice. The film will be used to help other schools develop their work. Some general shots will be taken around school as well as some interviews with some children. We have your permission slips in and will not be interviewing any children we do not have permission for. If you have concerns about your child appearing in a general panning shot please can you let me know as soon as possible.
