St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Happy New Year I hope you all had a good festive period and haven’t found the return to normal too difficult. It was lovely to see the children excited to be back, even if they were finding getting back into the routine a little tiring. I love this term the children are all very settled and attack their work with gusto, it is always such a pleasure to see how much they learn across this term. But before we know what has hit us we will be talking about Easter.

The children have been very excited to share what they have done over Christmas, it sounds as if you have all had some good times together. They have also been telling us what presents they got; there are lots of new phones and smart watches about. I just want to remind everyone that any devices that can make and receive phone calls or are connected to the internet need to be signed in at the start of the day and be collected at the end of the day. The signing in book and box is usually in Y6 at the beginning and end of the day.

You should have received a clubs letter yesterday. School run clubs restart on Monday apart from Gardening and Netball which will restart when the light improves. PAS restarts next Tuesday to book on this visit and then click book online. Forest Schools will restart on 17th March to book a place on this visit .

On Monday the children in Merlins and Ospreys will have a talk from the fire service about safety.

Swimming restarts on Thursday 16th January. Ospreys will meet at the baths as they did last term and Eagles will walk up there later in the morning.

The PTA is sorting out the rota for making toast on Friday mornings. If you would like to help make toast one Friday morning please let the office know or talk to Chika Jones who sorts the rota out.

As I was writing the date on this newsletter I was reminded of a helpful hint I heard this week – this year always write the year in full 2020 rather than 20, as just writing 20 allows for other numbers to be written after it leaving an opening for fraud. This may not be a big risk but I thought I would pass it on to you.

I am attaching the term dates – as usual things may change so do keep an eye on the newsletter for further information. Thinking about dates just a quick reminder that there is an INSET day on Monday 20th April so the children start back after Easter on Tuesday 21st April.
