St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter

Opening eyes, hearts and minds


Dear families of our St. Luke’s children,

Welcome back from your half term holiday.  We were very glad to see all of our children back safe and sound and they’ve clearly all had a good break and are pleased to be back in school and ready to learn.  Our Year 5s had a great time at the Glossopdale dance session and did a great job as ambassadors for St. Luke’s. I am very proud of them all.

Year 3 Classroom

We have moved our year 3 classroom from their original space into what was the Questionarium (non-fiction library.). We felt that the space that the children were in wasn’t as good as it could be so we made the decision to convert the library space into their new classroom.  They are so much more comfortable in there and they are significantly less disrupted by people travelling through their learning space to access other parts of the school.  A big team of parent volunteers have helped us to create the new KS2 library space.  This work is ongoing but we hope to have everything completed within the next couple of weeks.

Flu Immunisations

The immunisations team is back in on Tuesday 14th.  All remaining vaccinations (non-injections) will be carried out on that day.

World Diabetes Day

We are taking part in World Diabetes day on Tuesday 14th November.  We would love it if your child would come to school wearing something blue and with a small donation so that we can raise some money for the National Diabetes Association.  We have now (and had previously) children in school who have the condition so it would be lovely to show them that we support them and other children who have diabetes.

Glossop Jog

If you took part in the Glossop Jog, please can you bring your money that you raised into school next week?  The Rotary Club are keen to finalise the amount they have raised for their charity.


Year 2 are off to watch Frozen Junior at Glossopdale on Tuesday next week.  If your child is in Year 2, they will be back in time to have their immunisations so don’t worry.  They will be walking to and from Glossopdale so we have asked for some volunteers to help us get the children there safely.  I am sure they are going to have a great time.

Wishing you all a restful weekend.

With best wishes

Mrs Rogers
