St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Well here we are in October already where has September gone? The weather is certainly feeling more autumnal and the trees are turning, and I was given my first conker of the year this week. The children are settling back into the school routine, though it has taken a little longer than most years because of lockdown.

Thank you to all the parents of key stage 2 pupils who have got them going on Reading Plus at home. If you are having any difficulties do get in touch because this will really help your child’s reading.

Well done to all the children in Y5 who have done Bikeability I have received some great reports about your work. All the children looked much more confident at the end of the 2 days.

We are really missing the Y1 children and cannot wait for them to be back with us on Monday. I hope we don’t have to ask any other classes to isolate but just in case we do we would love any tips for other parents on how to make zoom lessons as good as possible. Thank you to the parent that suggested making sure the name on the log in is the child’s name. If you have found anything particularly helpful just let us know so we can put together a tips and wrinkles sheet for parents just in case.

We are about to hold our now annual sculpture park. I know some classes have been asked to send in recycling and there has been a great response to this, thank you. I am looking forward to seeing all the sculptures on Monday. We are planning to put them on your walk round school so you can see them whilst still following all the rules around social distancing.

From 2021 the Government is changing the Early Learning Goals for Reception children. We are an early adopter school so we have been disapplied from the current statutory Early Learning Goals and instead will be using the new ones. This will not affect the curriculum your child is offered.

Stay happy and healthy
