Newsletter 3rd July 2020 : COVID 19


Thank you all for your amazing support over this extremely challenging time. I know how hard it has been for everyone including our children. Many of you are sending in notes of support and I can’t tell you how much this means to the staff in school.

This was our first week with all staff back in the building and all 7 classrooms being used as pods. It has been a challenge to get used to the new way of working but the children and staff have been fantastic at trying to keep to the rules to keep us all safe.

** IMPORTANT ** Please note the change of holiday dates as advised in the newsletter.

There are lots of exciting developments here at St Luke's... read on for more details !!


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.

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
