St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Thank you so much to everyone who helped with the fair, who came to the fair or who supported us in anyway. It was so nice to see so many people safely around school. A number of people said how much they had enjoyed having the fair outside so we will have to consider it for the future. Father Christmas was a very popular visitor so the PTA have organised our traditional letters to Santa. If your child puts their letter in the box in the playground with £1 Santa will read and respond to it. Please remind them to put on their full name and class to help him reply to the right child.

Hopefully the weather will improve over the next few days and we will not have to put ark building on the curriculum. The children have been very good about having wet play when it has been just too horrid to go out. We do always try to get the children out so please try to send them in with suitable outdoor clothes.

We are nearly at party season. On 17th December the children in Y3 & Y4 will have their parties. It is Y5 & Y6s turn on Monday 20th and the children in Y1, 2 and Reception will have theirs on Tuesday 21st. On the day of their party the children can come to school in party clothes. Please remember they will be having a normal school morning including playing out so whatever they wear will have to be suitable for that.

We finish for Christmas on Wednesday 22nd December. That day we will be going over to church for our carol service which we will be live streaming for you. We will try and get all children on as we would in an in person carol concert. The carol service will not be recorded so there are no issues around retained images of children. We would ask that nobody tries to record the service themselves just as they wouldn’t if they were in church. We will also be having Christmas Dinner that day. Remember if you do not tell the office your child is not having Christmas Dinner we will assume they are.

If you owe any dinner money please can you organise payment so that we can balance our books.

Stay happy and healthy
