St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Thank you all so much for the way you have just stepped up and helped us get remote education working. I have been amazed at just how smoothly it has gone. I know there have been a few teething problems at our end and yours but we seem to have got those sorted. If you are having any problems at all technological or emotional please get in touch.

You will have seen that the guidelines around part time timetables have changed. The children of critical workers are expected to be at home if they can be and can now be in for part weeks, vulnerable children are expected to be in school full time.

You will have seen that there has been some controversy over the quality of the food hampers provided to the parents of children in receipt of free school meals in some parts of the country. I am pleased to be able to tell you that the hampers provided by Derbyshire Catering Service to our parents have been great. They contain a lovely mix of fresh and tinned produce and would make tasty, healthy lunches. The Catering service should be commended on the speed with which they put together these hampers across the whole county. I know our catering team assembled them as well as providing lunches for the children in school. A huge thank you goes out to them.

I am missing you all.

Stay happy and healthy
