St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents & Carers,

Well another week has flown by.  There is a lovely productive atmosphere across the school. Something that was commented on by the Inspectors on Tuesday. I have been lucky enough to have loads of children bring down some fantastic writing to show me.  I really enjoy seeing the children’s pride in their work when they know it is their best.

I hope your children all enjoyed the toast last Friday provided by the PTA.  Toast is going to be a regular Friday feature again.  Starting tomorrow if your child brings in 20p on a Friday they can buy a piece of toast.  The older children love being the person who is in charge of the list of those who have paid.  Not only is it a treat it is also part of the children’s financial education.  The children learn the link between money and goods.  In an age when lots of people pay with cards or online that understanding is even more important.  Thank you so much to the parents who have volunteered to make this possible.

I am attaching some information about a free girls’ cricket taster day.  Our girls are really enjoying cricket as a sport and I am sure a number of them will want to go to this.  It has been organised by Mrs Pierce so they will have a friendly face there.

It has been pointed out to me by one of our visitors to school that people have been parking on the zig zag lines outside school.  Please make sure you are following the Highway Code and parking responsibly to keep everyone safe.

Remember Monday is a bank holiday.  On Tuesday the NEU has called another strike day so Years 3,4 & 5 are not in.  Y1 are not in for the morning but will be in for their dinner at 12.  Reception are in for the morning but picked up at 12.30 after their dinner.

Next week we will be finding out more about the coronation and the role of the monarch.  On Thursday we will be having Merlin’s special menu of sausages – always a favourite.

A number of the older children are experiencing difficulties managing relationships on WhatsApp.  If this is true for your child the advice is not to ban them or take their phone off them but to talk to them about being respectful online, not using it as a way of saying to people things you wouldn’t say to their face.  It also should not be used as a way to exclude people.  WhatsApp is for 14 years plus and if you decide to let your child use it, help them to use it in a way that does not cause upset.

Enjoy the long weekend.

Stay happy and healthy
