St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Hapy World Book Day! I hope you all manage to take a moment out of your incredibly busy days to enjoy a book with your children. I know I am looking forward to storytime via zoom at 4pm today as I love sharing books.

It is so nearly here………Today is the last day of live lessons, tomorrow the children will have tasks set by the teachers to do but no zoom lessons. On Monday we will welcome you back to school. I sent out information about how we will be keeping you all safe last week but I am attaching it again in case you miss it. It is really important that you read it.

Drop off and pick up times will be staggered, details in the attached information. Please wait for your children in the playgrounds. Do not come up to the doors or wait on the path near the 5/6 door. This ensures everyone can keep a safe distance from each other.

I know there are many children and adults with mixed feelings about coming back to school. It will be like coming back in September but with bells on. Do not worry if your child fluctuates between being very excited and being worried. Reassure them, remind them of all the things they like about school. It will be ok. If you feel they, or you are more anxious than this do contact us.

If your child is in Key Stage 2 and you ordered fruit from January do not worry it will be carried forward.

Monday is class photo day – ideal as non of the children will have had a lot of time to get their clothes messy, though I am sure some of them will manage it. If I am honest my favourite school photos of my own children are the ones where they are looking less than perfect!

Lastly and most importantly I want us all to take a moment to celebrate what you have achieved over the last few months. What has been done is fantastic, you have either risked your own health to go out to work, thank you, or you have been at home supporting your children’s education as well as everything else you have to do paid or unpaid, thank you. The sacrifices you have made have started to bring down the infection and death rate. I know we have a long way to go and the spring will still be spent not with friends and wider family, but if we all follow the guidelines we will get there. Thank you all for what you have done, and will continue to do. You are all amazing.

See you on Monday

Stay happy and healthy
