St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Let me start with a correction I am so sorry but I got the start dates for next September wrong Y1-6 will start back on Wednesday 4th September the children in Reception will start on Thursday 5th September.

It was a pleasure to welcome the parents of the new Reception children on Monday and we are looking forward to their children’s visits in a few weeks. We are also hoping you will be able to take up the invitation to attend the Summer Fun Event on Friday 5th July from 3.30.

Thank you to the PTA for putting on the fashion show on Friday. It was much enjoyed by the people who attended. The PTA are very busy at the moment as they are organising the Summer Fun Event for next Friday 5th July straight after school. As every parent is a member of the PTA it would be lovely to see more of you having an input into the events, I know more help would be much appreciated for the 5th. I have been asked to put this message on the newsletter: “Preparations for the Summer Fun day are underway and the weather forecast is good! – The PTA are putting the plans together to make this a great event for the children including the very popular Inflatable Assault Course, Wet the Parent, Face painting, Tin Can Alley and many more!! This is a request for helpers, whether it’s baking cakes for the day, taking part in Wet the Parent or manning a stall/activity, any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you can help. Many thanks, Julie Shepley”

Kites are leading our assembly this Friday 28th June and Harriers will be leading it next Friday 5th July. You are very welcome to join us for our Friday assembly.

On Monday 1st July Harriers are treating us to a clarinet concert. Fresh from their triumph at The Bridgewater Hall they are preparing to wow us all. Please do join us for this just after 9am.

On Tuesday 2nd July it is our Summer Concert at 7pm. This is an opportunity for the choir to sing and anyone who is learning an instrument to perform. It is a lovely event and I hope lots of you will be able to come.

Most of the Year 6s have transition visits to their new secondary schools next week. I am sure they will all have a good time and start to feel more relaxed about the move to a new school.

It looks as if the summer might actually finally be here so can I remind you about putting sunscreen on your children before they come to school. If it needs reapplying during the day the children can bring in a named bottle that they can apply themselves. If you are going to send a bottle in please remind your child it is just for them and they should not be putting it on anyone else! A hat is also a good idea.

Please can the choir return their permission letters for the theatre and fringe concert by Wednesday 3rd as we have to sort tickets and transport. If their permission slip is not in by then we may not be able to take them.
