St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Thank you to everyone who helped at or supported the Summer Fun event I believe it was great fun. I am sorry I was not able to be there.

Congratulations to the girl’s cricket squad who performed well at the county final and were a credit to the school. Can I take this moment to thank all the parents who have made it possible for the children to attend so many sporting events. We could not do it without you.

This week we have welcomed visitors from the DFE who came to see us because of the work we do on being an inclusive school and supporting all children. We feel very honoured to have been chosen for this visit, not because we get it right all the time because we don’t but because it is recognition that we are always striving to meet everyone’s needs.

Tomorrow the Kestrels are leading our assembly and next Friday 19th July the Peregrines will take the lead. You are all welcome to our Friday Assembly.

Next week is the Y5&6 production of Treachery at Traitor’s Quay if you haven’t ordered your tickets yet please do.

On Friday 19th the choir are going to Buxton Opera House in the morning and are then singing as part of the Buxton Fringe between 1.30-2.30 hopefully on the Opera House forecourt, if we are not allowed to be there just round the corner in the Pavilion Gardens. If you are available please do come and support us at what is always a lovely event.

We are reaching the end of the school year and this year there are a number of members of staff whom we are saying goodbye to. Mrs Radford and Mrs Jones are retiring after many years’ service. Mrs Howe has been promoted so will be leaving our kitchen and Mrs Lamb has taken up an exciting position in another school. We wish them all well with their next step. If anyone would like to make a contribution to a leaving present for any of the staff leaving please send it into the office in a labelled envelope.

If your child is in Kites, Harriers, Eagles or Merlins next year and they would like fruit remember to send in their slip and money.

Not everyone has returned their blue permissions letter please can you as soon as possible.

Please can you remember to pay all dinner money debts.

The last disco of the year is on Monday 22nd July.

On Tuesday 23rd July there will be the leaver’s assembly, leaver’s lunch plus their leavers party at Pizza Express. It is also the last day of term.
