Head Lice

A number of parents have contacted us about children having occurring bouts of head lice.  The only way to get rid of head lice in schools is for ALL parents to regularly check and treat their   children’s hair. 

Please check and treat children’s hair over the Easter break so that all children return head lice free.  If a child has hair of any length it should be tied back at every  opportunity. This will also stop the spread of head lice.

For more information on the treatment of head lice please follow this link to the NHS website:


School Meal Price Increase

We have been informed by Lancashire Catering Service that the price of school meals will go up by 10p from 15th April. Therefore, when we return after the Easter Break, school meals will be £2.50 per day. Please ensure any outstanding balances are cleared by Friday 12th April and accounts are topped up prior to your child having a school dinner.

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.

Prospective Parent

Teachers are very helpful, friendly and approachable
