St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents & Carers,

Well we are having a very creative week this week.  It is our Take One Picture Week when the work is based on a picture chosen by The National Gallery.  This year the picture is Surprised by Rousseau.  It features a tiger in a jungle.  On Monday the children worked in houses and treated us to immersive jungle experiences, dancing, music composed by the children, dioramas, stories and poems.  For the rest of the week the children are working in class and delving deeper into what they want to explore.

Yesterday one of our cricket teams took part in a tournament as ever we are very proud of them.

On Friday we have Scoot and Skate organised by the PTA.  It runs 3.30-4.30.  Children need to be with an adult.  Helmets must be worn.  This as well as toast, lucky children, busy parents!

The PTA raffle is being drawn on Thursday 25th May.  You are invited to come and have tea and cake from 2.30 and witness the raffle being drawn.  If you have not yet returned your tickets they need to be in by Friday.  Some parents have asked if they can transfer the ticket money rather than pay cash.  This can be done if you write bank transfer on the envelope and transfer the money to St Luke’s Parent Teacher Association, Sort 30-13-32, account number 00169725

The next PTA meeting is on Tuesday 23rd May at 3.30 in school.  Please try to attend if you can as the PTA needs as many people as possible.

High peak Community Arts who work with lots of children in the area are in the running to bag a prize of £70,000 to help with their work, if they get the most votes.  Please support them by voting for their project. Voting is easy, just go to –  – watch the film, and vote from 15th May until midday 26th May.


On a previous newsletter I mentioned the work done at the Adult Education Centre I am attaching their latest leaflet.

An early warning, we have another Bag 2 School collection on Monday 26th June.  This is when we raise funds by you sending in your old clothes and shoes for reuse and recycling.  If you are having a clear-out, please bag your textiles up and save them for us.

Stay happy and healthy
