St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you are all managing alright. I am missing all the children, school seems very quiet with only a handful of children here. I am loving catching up with what you have all been doing on the blogs. Some of the children have really green fingers – their sunflowers are growing so well.

I do enjoy seeing your rainbows as I come to work, they make me smile.

I hope you are managing to keep up with the exercising. At school we are dancing every day with Oti – Strictly here we come!

I know many people across the county are finding these to be very challenging times financially. If your circumstances have changed and you are now eligible for free school meals do apply as you will receive vouchers to help towards your grocery shopping. You can apply by phoning 01629 536400/535743, emailing or on the website . If your application is successful please let me know so I can organise vouchers as soon as possible.
Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
• Income Support
• income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
• income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
• the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
• Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
• Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
• Universal Credit – if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
As you know school is open over the Easter Holiday for the children of key workers and vulnerable children. So far nobody has asked for us to be open on Good Friday or Easter Monday if you need us to be open on those days please let me know as soon as possible so that I can organise staffing.
I hope you all stay happy and healthy.
