St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the Glossop Jog.  There were some amazing distances run.  If your child took part you now need to collect the sponsor money and bring it into school as soon as possible.

Friday is the first Class Assembly of the academic year.  Year 5 will be leading it.  I will send out a code word on Friday morning to the parents of children in Y5. 

Next week is walk to school week.  This is the week when we encourage you to walk scoot or cycle to school.  If you cannot walk all the way please try to park further away from school and walk some of the way.

Next week is also the PTA disco on Thursday 20th October.  What a great way to celebrate the end of the half term.

There has been a lot of sickness this week.  Just a quick reminder that if your child has sickness or diarrhoea they need to stay off for 48 hours from the last incident.  This is to help stop the spread of it.

The PTA committee has been thinking about how to give people the experience to help them take over the named roles in the PTA and reduce the workload for each named role. They have come up with the idea of having shadows so for example there might be a shadow treasurer supporting the present treasurer and learning about what the job entails.  As we have already had the PTA AGM so cannot have this ratified there, we wanted to ask if anyone can see any problem with this idea and ask if there are any objections to it.  As members of the PTA you all have the right to raise any objections.  If we don’t hear from anyone by 1st November we will assume everyone is in favour of this constitutional change.

The Police and Crime Commissioner has asked me to let you know about a survey they are carrying out into crime and community safety.  The link to the survey is below:

I am attaching the PTA newsletter please do read it as it has more information about the Disco and how you can use Amazon Smile to raise funds for school.

I am also attaching a leaflet from the National Sleep Helpline which some of you might find helpful.

The children finish on Thursday 20th October for half term.  They restart on Monday 31st October.

Stay happy and healthy
