St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

It has been lovely to hear all the tales of Whitehall, with them getting taller and taller by the second! It sounds as if all the children had a great time, took on challenges and learnt lots. Thank you to the staff that made that possible.

Last night was cross country and Mr Holt tells me that the children showed great sportsmanship, they encouraged everyone and he was very proud of them. Well done to everyone.

Your children may well have come home and told you there was a drone flying over school this week. Well they were right, let me explain… you know we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school and that is the reason many of you chose St Luke’s for your child. Being inclusive means we support all children no matter what their background or ability, whatever their educational need is. We support children to learn academically and socially. The work we do has been recognised by a nomination for a national award. We are down to the last two schools, which is a huge honour in itself. You may ask what that has to do with a drone? Well; we have been asked to submit a very short film to support our nomination and the drone was taking some aerial shots of the playground. The film is being put together now and I will let you see it when it is finished.

Tomorrow is disco night. We look forward to seeing the children with their glad rags on at 5pm. The disco finishes at 6.30. I have just come up with a new plan for pick up which may work better. If parents come in through the hall door collect their child and go out through the main entrance door. Operating this one way system should help us see everyone out safely. The children like to have a bit of money for some food and something from the little toy stalls.

Peregrines are leading the assembly tomorrow, do join us if you can.

Next week is walk to school week when we encourage everyone to try and walk more of their journey to school. Please support this initiative by walking some or all of the school run to and from school.

It is parents evening on Wednesday 23rd October so there will be no afterschool clubs that day.

We finish for half term on Thursday 24th October and will return to school on Monday 4th November.

I have been asked to let you know about the ‘Peak Performers Choir’ who are looking for new members. They are a choir for children aged 7-13. They rehearse on Wednesdays 6-7pm at Partington Theatre Club Room. Subscriptions are £2 per week. If your child is interested contact Brenda Pickford on 01457 856851 / 07975856424
