St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Congratulations to the children who represented the school at Aquasplash on Tuesday, they all did us proud.

Today we are holding our Easter Service at 2pm.  As the number of cases of covid are rising nationally we are only inviting the parents of Year Six to join us in church.  Year Six are leading the service which is why we are inviting their parents.  I am very sorry not to be able to invite you all, hopefully next year.

We finish for Easter tomorrow Friday 8th April and return to school on Monday 25th April.  I hope you all have a good few weeks.

Thank you to everyone who returned the slip about choir availability to sing at the Fairtrade event.  Not enough children are available so we will not be able to do this.  I am sure there will be lots of other events we can sing at.

The church have organised an Easter Peg Hunt.  Here are the details:

I have been asked to share this information with you:

26,000 free Easter holiday activity places available at 95 venues across Derbyshire

This Easter, Derbyshire County Council is providing 26,000 free holiday activity places at 80 venues across the county for local schoolchildren aged 5-16.

The free sessions include a healthy meal at breakfast or lunchtime and seasonal activities, sports, craft clubs, drama, gardening and more.

The sessions, available throughout the Easter holidays, are all free for families who claim benefit related free school meals. Places may also be available to children in other vulnerable groups, including children with SEND, who are not currently in receipt of benefit related free school meals.

Places are available on a first come, first served basis, with a limited number available to any school age child living in the county.

Sessions will run during both weeks of the Easter school holidays, starting from Monday 11 April.

To find out more about the activities on offer and details about venues, please visit our website at which lists the organisations taking part, dates and times of sessions and contact details.

For any further details, please contact our team by email:

In addition, children and families can find online activities and ideas for low-cost activities to take part in at home on the It’s About Me website:


If your child is in Key stage 2 and you owe any dinner money please pay it by the end of the day tomorrow.


I am attaching the term dates for 2022/23.  I know it feels such a long way away but having the dates will help you make sure you don’t accidently  take holidays in term time. 


Please see below a message from Mr Beaman;

Just a quick message to say thanks again for the donations. In total St Luke’s added £2588 which is amazing. £2K from the first donation and £588 from the second (there was only £230 left in match funding when the donation was added) 

On the day the weather was kind (although I think we had four seasons in one day) and I managed to finish in 3 hours 47 minutes. I was very glad to see the finish line, the last 10k was tough going 🙂

Thanks again



Stay happy and healthy
