St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you have all been enjoying Travel Smart Week and have been able to make fewer, or shorter car journeys. I know the weather has not made it easy for us!

It was lovely to see the parents of the new children on Tuesday even if it was virtually. If you have any questions, please do contact us so we can try to answer them.

You should have received information about our new parent teacher meeting booking system. We received so many positive comments about how much easier it had been in the autumn to manage these meetings around family life the only slightly clunky thing was the method. We are trialling a new system where you are able to book your own meetings giving you more control. If you have problems do let us know and we will try to help, when I say we I of course mean Mrs Hukin and Mrs Evans. Not that I wouldn’t try to help just that I don’t know how much use I would be.

As we approach half term I again need to remind you that if your child shows symptoms of Corona Virus and tests positive with a PCR test we ask that you use the school text service to tell us. It is really important that any contacts are asked to isolate to reduce the possible spread. There won’t be anyone in the office over the holiday but we will monitor the texts. Thank you for this.

I have received the following message from the local Cubs leader:
“Cubs is for boys and girls age 8 to 10.5. Meetings have recently restarted at 3rd Glossop on Hope Street on Tuesday evenings. It is usually advisable to put your child’s name on the waiting list when they are 5 or 6 as there are normally not enough spaces for all who want to join. Due to Covid, there will, however, be spaces from September. If you’d like your child to join cubs, email:”

I know it is a long time in a child’s life until September and we have 1/6 of the school year still ahead of us, but people are starting to ask about which teachers will be teaching which class next year. So here are our current plans, things of course can change. I would ask you not to make a big fuss of this information with your children as I don’t want them to feel that this year is over already – we still have lots to achieve.


Reception – Mrs Hillier

Year 1 – Miss Done

Year 2 – Mrs Eltringham

Year 3 – Mr Holt

Year 4 – Ms Noble

Year 5 – Mrs Clayton & Miss Ellwood

Year 6 – Miss Byron


We break up for half term tomorrow and the children return to school on Thursday 10th June. I hope you all have a good break and the weather improves.


Stay happy and healthy
