St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents & Carers,

What a lovely week we have had crisp cold mornings and spring like days, I know it is drizzly this morning but it has been fantastic.  I hope it stays nice for next week when the children are off.

The Governors have completed the recruitment process and I am pleased to be able to tell you they have appointed my successor.  Mrs Jakki Rogers will take over as the Headteacher from September.  She is an experienced Headteacher currently working as part of the Stockport Inclusion Team. She will be a good fit for the school and I am sure you will enjoy working with her.

On Friday (tomorrow) the Pupil Parliament and High Peak Kids Council are running a break 5 rules day to raise money for Mountain Rescue and Blyth House.  The way it works is this for each rule the children choose to break they are asked to donate at least 20p.  If they break all 5 rules that is a donation of at least £1.  The rules are:

  1. Wearing uniform – the children can wear their own clothes
  2. Only water to drink – the children can bring in unhealthy drinks
  3. Only fruit for snack – the children can bring in unhealthy snacks
  4. Tidy hair & no nail varnish – the children can have crazy hair and wear nail varnish
  5. No toys – the children can bring in a toy (remember toys in school can get damaged or lost so please don’t send in anything too precious).

The PTA have planned an evening event on Friday the 24th of March for the grown ups! They will be hosting a Quiz Night with Smart Phone Quiz Knights Ben Knight! Please pencil the date in to your calendar and if you’d like to get involved in planning the event, please drop them an email at

We finish for half term on Friday and the children are back in on Monday 27th February.

It is World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March.  This year we are not dressing up but having a book swop and a book at breakfast.  We are also asking the children to bring in photos of them reading in interesting places.  Last week I shared some photos to inspire you here is another: Mrs Clayton reads in the swimming pool.



On Friday 3rd of March Eagles will be leading our Collective Worship.  It will start just after 9am and I will send out the code word that morning.


Stay happy and healthy
