St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

What a great week we have had despite the rain. All the new children have made a great start they have settled so well and any tears at the door have dried before they have even made it into the classroom. The children taking part in Bikeability have done well and those that are in the next group will do their sessions December 2nd & 3rd. The children standing for election have all made amazing speeches they could teach our politicians a lot!

You should have received a clubs letter if it hasn’t made it home there are spares in the office. There is an extra club to put on the list a Netball Club on Wednesdays 3.30-4.30 for children in Y4-6. Netball is a fast growing sport in this country and our National team is doing very well.

You should also have received a letter about the Glossop Jog. The Jog is a sponsored run/walk/stroll/toddle the children take part in every year organised by the Rotary Club. We always have a great turn out from St Luke’s as our children are so good at supporting others through service. A lot of fun is had by all no matter how many laps they do. I do hope we will again have a great turnout from St Lukes.

I can tell the new term has started because I have had complaints about parking. Please can I remind you to park in a way that keeps the children safe and does not block our neighbours. Parking is not permitted on the zigzag lines and we ask that you do not park on the driveway in towards the gates. This is to keep our children safe. I would also ask you to be careful not to park across driveways as this blocks our neighbours.

Clubs start on Monday apart from the clubs on Wednesdays which start on 25th September. If you have returned the clubs letter you should get a slip home this week to say which clubs they are on. Drama Club is full and anyone else interested in joining this club will have to go on the waiting list.

The library visits planned for next week have been postponed.

The phonics workshop is on Thursday 19th September straight after school.

Friday 20th September, weather permitting, is the scoot and skate session organised by the PTA. The children are invited to bring their scooters and skates to school and use the playground, something not permitted normally! We ask that they all wear helmets.

We are about to start a very exciting school wide project that we would like your help with. The whole school is going to create a sculpture park for you to visit on Friday 27th September. We are going to use our park to think about plastics. What we would like you to do is to save all your single use plastics (cleaned please) for a week from this Friday 13th September and send them in to school on Friday 20th September. These will be used by the children to make their sculptures. I do hope you will be able to help us with this.
