St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents & Carers,

Huge congratulations go out to the children in Eagles and Merlins who treated us to an outstanding production of Hagbane’s Doom.  They clearly put a lot of work into it.

The children in kite’s had a wonderful trip to Mossy Lea last Friday and I was delighted to hear how well behaved they were and how much of a credit they were to you and the school.

Yesterday the children in Y5&6 were treated to a performance by The Buxton Opera House Young Players.  They thoroughly enjoyed it and after their performance fully understood what was involved.

On Monday one of Glossop library’s librarians came in to talk to the children about the summer reading challenge.  Do go into the library and sign your child up for this.

The PTA organised a fantastic Treasure Trail on Saturday with flamingos and cats and all manner of other things.  It was a really nice family event culminating in a picnic on the field, until the rain came down!  Thank you to everyone who put in so much hard work to make this happen.

The next PTA event is the disco next Wednesday 19th July. 5-6.30.  See the poster attached.

Remember the summer concert featuring the choir and musicians on Tuesday 18th July.

This week is the last week of toast.  Thank you to all the parents who have helped make this Friday treat for the children.

During the first week of the holiday Mel is running a comedy workshop at school.  I am attaching details of what she will be covering.  If you have a budding comic actor or comedian do think about signing them up for this by contacting Mel on

We have just been informed by the catering service that the cost of school meals is rising from September to £3.25 a day.  They are sorry but feel they have to do this to cover the rising costs they face.  They assure us that this rise only covers costs and does not make a profit.  Remember children in Key stage 1 all receive free school meals.  If your child will be in Key stage 2 or above from September, you can see if you are eligible for free school meals by logging on to

Stay happy and healthy
