St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I cannot believe this is the last newsletter of this academic year it doesn’t seem two minutes since I was welcoming you in September! Thank you all so much for this year and all the support you have offered the school. Without your support the education we could offer the children would be so much poorer. The children have achieved so much this year, experienced so much this year and enjoyed so much this year.

Congratulations to the children in Eagles and Merlins for the quality of their work in the production this week. The acting and singing was of a very high standard and the stagecraft shown was outstanding.

We welcomed the police into our assembly on Wednesday, they came to talk about keeping safe across the summer holiday. They reminded the children about water safety, not playing in derelict buildings or building sites and not getting so distracted by their mobile phones that they don’t notice roads.

Today is a busy day with Kestrels and Peregrines having a pirate day and everyone getting involved in a maths challenge day.

On Friday the choir will be donning their wet weather gear and taking part in the Buxton Fringe. They will be going to a performance at the Opera House and then performing between 1.30-2.30 either outside the Opera House or just inside the Pavilion Gardens. Do come and support our performance if you can.

Next week we are having our meet your new teacher session on Monday.

On Monday it is also the PTA Disco 5-6.30pm Do put your glad rags on and join us.

On Tuesday, the last day of term, it is the leavers assembly where we are entertained by the Year 6s as they celebrate being ready to move on to Secondary School. They also have leaver’s lunch at lunchtime. The leavers do is at Pizza Express. The Year 6s can go home get glammed up and meet us at 5pm.

Thank you again to everyone who supported the summer fun event you raised £695 whilst having fun.

A few reminders; bikeability letters need to be back for children in Y4&5 who would like to take part in this important safety event. Whitehall letters for children in Y5. Fruit money for children in Key Stage 2 next year needs to be in and please pay any dinner money debts.


I hope you all have a lovely summer and I look forward to seeing you all back at school on Wednesday 4th September. The new Reception children start on Thursday 5th September.
