St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Thank you so much to all the parents and children who supported the choir on Sunday.  Despite coughs and sneezes and the cold it was a good concert.  I was very proud of the children.

I was also proud of the children in Peregrines and Ospreys who performed their play so well.  They spoke and sung up and filled in for each other like seasoned professionals.

Tomorrow Friday 16th Kestrels are leading our collective worship.  Their assembly will start as soon after 9 as we can manage.  Parents of the children are welcome.  I will text out a code word tomorrow morning to enable you to get in.

Thank you to the Central Methodist Church who are welcoming all the school across today and tomorrow for an immersive Christmas experience.

Next week is another busy week.

Monday – Choir singing at Tesco in the morning, Y3 & Y4 party in the afternoon.

Tuesday – Y5 & Y6 party

Wednesday – R, Y1 & Y2 party

Thursday – Carol Service 9.15ish in St Luke’s Church (you are welcome to join us).  Christmas Dinner and finish for Christmas.

Remember weather permitting the PTA are having a pop up stall in the playground at the end of the day next week.  The tea towels you ordered should also be available to be picked up then.

I have noticed that a number of children are wearing earrings for PE and saying they don’t know how to take them out.  Your child’s earrings need to be removed for PE for safety reasons.  If your child cannot take them out and put them back in please make sure they are removed before they come to school on PE days.

In January school reopens on Monday 9th.

Applications for Reception 2023 close on Sunday 15th January if you have a child born between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019 you must apply for a school place by then.

Stay happy and healthy
