Friends of St. Luke's
YOUR SCHOOL NEEDS YOU!
Friends of St. Luke's are a group of parents, carers and teachers dedicated to raising additional funds for the school by organising enjoyable events for you, your children and your family. This is like a PTA just with a different name.
Our aim is to raise funds to buy those important extras that help to make the time all of your children spend as St Luke's, as effective and fun as possible. To make these events as successful as possible what we need most is YOUR SUPPORT.
All parents and carers of children at St. Luke’s are members of the PTA. If you want to lend a hand we would appreciate any time and help you can give.
The more help we have the better we can be.
At St. Luke’s, we seek to work with parents to ensure the best learning occurs for their children. We meet regularly with parents both informally and formally at Open Afternoon school meetings, parent drop-ins and biannual parents' evening. Teachers may also telephone parents. If a parent wishes to see or speak to the class teacher, then they make an appointment at the office to see or speak to the teacher at a time convenient for both parties. Phase leaders and further members of the senior leadership team are also available if required. Please note: that some of these meetings are on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Parents of children with special needs may be provided with specific activities to support their child at home. For example, this could be flash cards or number bonds.
Our Headteacher provides regular virtual drop in meetings too which help parents discuss issues with their child and offer guidance. Parents receive a termly curriculum newsletter so they are aware of topics their child is learning and can also access information via the school website or Google Classroom. Parents receive three written reports throughout the year too which document attainment, progress and targets for learning.
Where possible the school offer specific parental guidance in the form of outside agencies holding training sessions. If you are worried, unsure or require further guidance, please do not hesitate to make an appointment to see your class teacher.
St. Luke's Home School Support :
At the end of every term the Headteacher or Senior Team will be available for meetings with individuals and/or group of parents that would like to discuss particular learning concerns.
Please book an appointment at the school office.
