St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Good morning I hope you are all well. School continues to be a calm, happy, purposeful place. We now have our pupil parliament elected and up and running. The children held their first meeting yesterday and I am looking forward to hearing from them about what they want to achieve this year. We have also elected our chaplains who think about our spiritual development. They also met yesterday and I know they are looking at the reflection areas in the classrooms and how they can be useful spaces. I am sure both groups will represent the children well.

On Wednesday 29th we are setting up our annual sculpture park. Around the outside of school there will be a number of sculptures made by each class. This year the theme is sanctuary. We chose this because of the number of refugees seeking sanctuary around the world. The children have been really moved by the images of people trying to flee Afghanistan and wildfires or floods and famine. We wanted to explore what safety and a safe place to live means. We hope the sculptures come together and that you enjoy them.

On Thursday 30th September Glossopdale is holding an open day for Year 6 pupils. To be as covid safe as possible each primary school has been given a time slot. The slot for us is 3-4pm. They contacted me and asked if I would mind children leaving school early for this and I of course said that was fine. Transition to secondary school is really important so I was happy to help this happen. You can book your place by emailing

On Thursday 30th September Mrs Hillier is holding a phonics workshop for Reception parents and anyone else who has not been able to attend before or who would like a refresher. The link to the workshop is:
