Thank you so much to everyone who attended the ‘Meet the Teacher’ events last week. If you were unable to attend, the information you need is on your child’s Class Dojo page. Please ensure you take notice of all the information coming from school, as we want you to know of everything we are doing to help your child learn and grow.
The children have settled really well into their new school year and are working hard to catch up and further their learning in school. If you have any questions please contact us on 01524 65445 OR firstname.lastname@example.org
It is also essential that parents have access to Parent APP and Class Dojo as much school information is shared this way and we will continue to do this post COVID.
As we finish for the year I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for your support and understanding throughout a very difficult year. Together we have weathered the changes brought about through COVID and the ever changing rules surrounding the virus. At times it has been very challenging for you and for staff and most of all our children. Because we have tried our best to communicate, stay positive and support each other, our children are finishing this year very positively. Even as some classes have had to self-isolate towards the end of term the majority of you have been understanding and shown such kindness towards staff who are just having to follow government and Local Authority guidelines. Thank you.
The children at St Luke’s absolutely embody our Bible passage ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ Luke 10:27 and I could not be more proud of them.
I hope that you all enjoy a relaxing and COVID free holiday and we will do what we do best which is prepare for the Autumn Term and be ready for all eventualities.
Share in our celebrations and look ahead to class transition, Euro day, St John's Hospice Big Picnic and more....
With the school year flying by, it has been great to see children back in class over the summer term busy with their learning. Looking towards next half term and the end of the year, things will be a little different than normal - still, plans are afoot to make the end of the year as memorable as possible whilst keeping us all safe in school. We have some events and trips planned which the children will enjoy and share with you at home, on Class Dojo and Facebook. Please read on....
Please take the time to read our newsletter - it is a way for you to keep up to date with events and news in school and the local community.
We look forward to welcoming ALL our children back to school...
As we enter the time of Advent and preparing for Christmas, I would like to thank you all for the fantastic effort you have made to follow school rules and work together to keep each other safe. I am very proud that we have managed to keep the school open, apart from Friday, throughout this Autumn Term and I am hopeful that we will be able to continue this over the next few weeks. You should all be very proud of your children and the effort they have all put into their learning this term. Every child in school has made progress in their learning, been engaged in class and continued to develop friendships and resilience throughout this strange time.
Even though Lancaster and Morecambe have become more COVID safe we need to continue to follow government guidelines until we are told otherwise. We are planning events at Christmas that will make the experience as normal as possible for the children in school. Please continue to look out for class notices on Class Dojo and messages via parent app that will inform you of all we have planned. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy time as you make your Christmas preparations.
Thank you for your patience and supportive comments following our first day back on Friday. We are all working to see what the ‘new normal’ is going to actually look like so I appreciate you working with us during this time. After much feedback from you, the parents, and staff following the drop off and pick ups last week I have decided to completely overhaul the plan.
I hope that you have all had a safe and happy summer. We have met together as a staff on our first INSET day on Tuesday 1st and we are all looking forward to welcoming your child/ children back to school on Friday 4th September. New reception children will be joining us soon and parents have been advised of this separately.
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.
Thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to read our newsletter.... At St Luke's we work together in our distinctive Christian vision to follow Jesus’ teaching, and become our best selves. We aim for everything we do to be clearly reflected in our mission statement:
Opening minds, learning through challenge and celebrating God’s world
Luke 10: 27 ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’
We are looking at '40 Acts' over Lent considering spiritual, learning, digital, mental and physical health. We hope that all our children and their families will take part in Lent and continue to promote a healthy wellbeing along with acts of kindness in their daily life.
