Newsletter - 12th January 2024

Happy New Year! It has been lovely to welcome all the children back and to hear their Christmas stories. I hope that everyone had a good Christmas and managed to find some time to relax during the holiday period. The term has started smoothly and I have been impressed with how quickly the children have got back into the routine of school. There is always a lot happening at school so keep an eye on the dates, newsletter, Parent App and Dojo as we always try and give as much notice as possible to the things that are happening and any changes to planned events.

Spirituality Week

This week we are thinking about what it means to be a spiritual human being in our world today.  The children have been working around this in their   classes this week and will all             participate in Experience Spirituality during the day on Friday. 

There won’t be a celebration worship on Friday but we will start again on  Friday 19th January.


Thank you so much for working with us to improve school attendance.  Our whole school attendance has improved greatly compared to this time last year and this means more of our children are in school on time than last January.  This matters for the children’s education as well as their social and emotional wellbeing.

We know that there are lots of coughs and colds at this time of year and it can be very hard to decide if your child is well enough for school. 

If you are ever in doubt you can always check using this website

If you are still unsure, try sending them in and if they are struggling we will always ring you and let you know if they are too unwell to be in school.

It’s a lovely community. We all feel like a part of St Luke’s family. My child loves her teachers and knows other members of staff. It’s lovely to walk into school and people know my child’s name and always say hello to her, even teachers from other classes or Mrs Armistead.


I know when I drop my kids off they are happy and safe and they both enjoy their time in school.


Thank you for not only teaching my daughter but also caring for her. She’s really happy at school and is making great progress in all areas of learning.


The staff have been so supportive of my child with Special Educational Needs. They are amazing and it makes me confident that my daughter is well looked after and if she has any problems they will help.

Parent of a child with SEND

The Reception Open Day really showed the school in a good light. The Headteacher showed us round and knew all of the pupil’s names. All of the children we met were friendly and polite but more importantly they were all smiling whilst learning.

Teachers are very helpful, friendly and approachable
