St Luke’s CE Primary School

Newsletter 21.5.2020

Dear Parents,

Thank you all so much for the messages you sent the staff for Thank a Teacher Day. There were lots of tears and smiles as they read them.

Thank you to whoever left us the beautiful flower pebble the children and staff loved it.

Next week would have been half term – I know nothing seems normal now. School will still be open for key worker’s children and vulnerable children apart from on Bank Holiday Monday when nobody needed us. The kitchen will be closed for the holiday so please can the children bring in packed lunches.

As you are all aware the government it hoping schools can widen the number of children they are open to from 1st June. If we are given the go ahead for this to happen the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 will be invited to come back to school, as well as the children we already have in school. Attached to this newsletter is the detailed plan for how we at St Luke’s are going to do this safely and with the children’s wellbeing at heart. If your child is in one of these year groups I will be asking you to let me know if they will be able to come in. There are no more details about any plans for the rest of the children but if your children are in years 2-5 do read the plans so you have some idea about how we are intending to work.

As staff are very busy planning and preparing for more children in school I am encouraging them to have a holiday next week. This means the blogs will have less on and messages may well not be answered as promptly. I hope you all stay happy and healthy.
