St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you are all well and did manage to squeeze a few minutes in to look after yourself over the last week. I am missing seeing you all twice a day but I am teaching a lot at the moment so can only be out in the yard some days. Thank you all for how well you are sticking to the new rules. I know many of you find it very frustrating not being able to have a quick chat at drop off and pick up time with your child’s teacher, we are feeling the same. Remember if you need to talk to us we are still here just phone or email the office and the right person will get back to you.

I have been contacted to say that the parking outside school has got worse. I believe some people are not only breaking the highway code they are also being dangerous. Drop off and pick up times are busy times even with the staggered times and parking outside school is limited. The situation has been exacerbated by more people working from home so their cars are, quite legitimately, outside their houses when in the past they would not have been. It may mean walking a bit further but please park responsibly and respectfully.

If you are wanting to order photographs the proofs need to be back in school by Monday 16th November.

On Tuesday it is flu immunisation day, I know most of you have signed up for your child to receive this.

Remember Wednesday 18th November is Bag 2 school day. Please bring in your old textiles. If you could put any bags outside the main entrance, we would be very grateful.

You will have seen that it is Christmas Dinner Day on the last day of term. We can’t have Dinner all together in the hall but the staff will eat with the children in their bubble, we will still have crackers and a good time. This event is usually attended by almost all the children and they love it. If you don’t want your child to have Christmas Dinner please let the office know as soon as possible as the food has to be ordered.

Stay happy and healthy
