St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe but this is the last newsletter of this academic year and what a year it has been. I want to extend a huge well done and thank you to everyone for everything you have done. I know lots of you are going to feel a huge sense of relief that you no longer need to be responsible for home learning. A number of people have told me that they are looking forward to having time with their children without worrying about schooling them. I also know that a number of you will miss working with your children every day.

Thank you to all of you who have sent in lovely messages to the staff we have all appreciated them.

There have been a number of queries following the letter I sent home about arrangements for September which I can answer now.

• Birthday treats, there is no pressure to send in treats for the class if it is your child’s birthday but if you want to please can they be something like little packets of sweets. Please no lollies and unfortunately I am going to have to say no home-made deliciousness from September.

• If your child is going to out of school care before and or after school we will work with the nurseries so they only have 1 drop off/ pick up time.

• Reading books – I have no answer now about these as we are being encouraged not to send them home, but I am working on it.

The county council is looking at what can be realistically done to get students to and from school. To help plan for the September return the council need every parent and carer to complete a short survey. The survey asks about how your children got from home to school before the coronavirus pandemic, and how you think they will get to school in September. It also asks how your children could be encouraged to walk, cycle or scoot to school. Please use this link to fill in the survey , the deadline is 31st July.

If you have not yet paid for your dinners please can you, today.

For those parents who will finish being a St Luke’s parent thank you for all your support over the years. Thank you for trusting us with your child or in some cases children. It has been such a pleasure to be part of your lives over the years. Remember you never stop being part of the St Luke’s family. Please keep in touch, we will miss you as well as your children.

I hope you all have a lovely summer and I look forward to seeing you on Thursday 3rd September, 4th for new reception children.

Stay happy and healthy
