St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you have all had a good week and are settling into the current normal. I know a number of you have been swapping the challenges of working from home for the challenges of going into work. I hope it is going relatively smoothly for you.

We have had a good week at school. It was so lovely to see the younger children at scoot and skate last night. We are looking forward to seeing the Key stage 2 children tonight. Thank you so much for the members of the PTA who have organised these events for us.

The children new to school in Reception or higher up the school have settled so well. As I walk round school I see lots of happy, focused, settled learners. It is such a pleasure to be able to share the children’s learning with them.

Our whole school virtue at the moment is caring and I have seen lots of examples of children caring for each other and for the environment. I hope they are caring for you at home.

This term the number of children coming to school late has jumped significantly. It is so important to bring your children to school on time so they have a good start to the school day and are ready to learn. Children who arrive late take longer to settle to their learning. Children who arrive late are also learning poor habits for when they are adults and will be expected to arrive at work on time. Please can everyone make a concerted effort to be at school before 9am, doors open at 8.45 so I would aim for then.

I have also noticed that a number of children are bringing in water bottles with juice in. I am sorry but the children are only allowed to drink water during the school day please do not send them in with juice.

Sorry that felt like a couple of nags I am just keen to make sure all the children can get the most out of their school life and learn to be happy healthy adults.


Stay happy and healthy
