St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Well we have arrived at the end of this half term, the summer holiday seems like a long time ago. The children across school have made a really good start to the year, they are working hard and making good progress. The children in Reception have settled so well and are happy confident learners now. The rest of the school in addition to doing well in class have relearnt how to play together outside with very few incidents.

I hope you all continue to find parents meetings online a much easier option than coming into school and hanging around waiting for your appointment. A number of you have said that the only downside is not seeing any of the children’s work. We understand this and are working on ways of sharing work with you, please be patient whilst we come up with the best way to do this.

If you have not yet sent in your Glossop Jog money, please can you do so as soon as possible.

If you owe any dinner money, please go online and pay it.

You should have received the new menus for after half term and your child/children’s photos.

We have been contacted by the English Touring Opera who are offering you access to a free online opera for 7-11 year olds over half term. The flyer for this with the link is attached. Please don’t be put off by the term opera when they come into school the children love it. It might well fill a rainy half term afternoon for free!

We do finish for half term today, tomorrow is a staff INSET day. We return to school on Monday 1st November. That is a busy week; it is Parliament week and we are lucky enough to have our MP Robert Largen talking to the children about what it is like to be an MP. The Year 6s are off on their residential trip to Whitehall which is very exciting. On that first day back they will come in with their bags packed ready for two nights away from home and lots of activities during the day.

If your children are planning to celebrate Halloween by trick or treating, please make sure they only go to the houses of people wanting to take part and who they know. Remember Covid is still with us, and on the increase and visiting a number of houses may not be the wisest thing to do.

I hope you have a good Covid safe half term and I look forward to seeing you all on 1st November.

Stay happy and healthy
