St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Thank you all so much for the amazing donations you sent in for harvest. Glossop Food Bank were blown away by your generosity.

Thank you also to everyone who took part in the Glossop Jog. The children kept going for the full hour, and very impressively so did the adults. Now comes the even harder bit, collecting the sponsor money and getting it into school.

Tomorrow night is sleepover night for Y5. This is a really fun event with big educational benefits. The children try sleeping away from home with their classmates in a very controlled and secure way. They go home for their tea after school, so see their parents, then come back to school for fun and hopefully some sleep and go home after breakfast. We have found doing this increases their self-confidence and helps them be ready to take part in all the fabulous learning done on residentials.

Next week is walk to school week. All the children are encouraged to walk, scoot or cycle at least part of the way to school.

On Thursday 21st the children in Kestrels, Peregrines and Ospreys are going to be treated to a performance by The English Touring Opera. The company would like to take some pictures of the children enjoying the performance. A permission slip will be coming home to enable them to do this. Please return it to school as soon as possible.

The children finish for half term on Thursday 21st October as it is a staff training day on Friday 22nd.

On Friday 22nd, whilst school is quiet, we are holding an open afternoon between 2-6pm. If you know of anyone who has a child due to start school next September, please let them know about it. They can book a slot by phoning the office.

Stay happy and healthy
