St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I do hope you all enjoyed the sculptures the children made with the theme of Hope. They all made me smile, and still do even though they are looking a little bedraggled due to the rain. I do hope this next week is less soggy!

The children are all having a first aid session this week. I am so pleased that despite the restrictions we are still able to offer extras such as the sculpture park and first aid.

Because of the restrictions we are not able to join together in church and celebrate the harvest. I do miss us all joining in songs of praise together, but keeping everyone safe is more important. We do however want to still think about how grateful we are for what we have. With this in mind, on Wednesday 21st October, we are asking the children to bring in a donation for Glossop Food Bank this can be tins, dried food or toiletries. We are also for the first time supporting Social Box Biz. SocialBox.Biz, a social enterprise, supplies free reused laptops with open source software to the homeless, refugees and the elderly. It was founded by a former child refugee who was given an old used laptop. SocialBox.Biz has had a surge in requests for the laptops but unfortunately has not been able to meet the increased demand. If you have an old but usable laptop and charger which you are happy to donate please send it into school.

On Wednesday 14th October it is photo day. I have been asked if the company is still happy to do pre-schoolers in a family group. I am checking it out and will let you know.

We have been thinking about how to do parents evenings without meeting up in person. We have decided to hold the meetings via zoom. On Friday 23rd October you will be given a ten-minute slot to talk to your child’s teacher, we will coordinate so you are not due to talk to 2 teachers at the same time. You will get an invitation via email. If there is any time between 8am and 6pm when you are not available on the 23rd please let us know. If you can be available at any point there is no need to reply.

Stay happy and healthy
