Welcome to St Luke's Primary School!

Dear Parents,

I am delighted to be writing to you as the new Headteacher of St Luke's. Having visited the school and church on several occasions prior to starting I have found all the staff, children and governors very welcoming and I feel privileged to be joining your school and village community. Having grown up in Colchester before successfully teaching and leading schools across the country I am very much looking forward to working in, and becoming part of, a growing community that is close to my childhood roots.

My priority as Head Teacher is to ensure that the school continues to improve and that your children are happy and get the best possible education. I am passionate about meeting the needs of every child and enabling them to reach their full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development. Working together, I hope that we will continue to develop St Luke's as a caring and integral part of the Tiptree community.

I look forward to meeting you all in the coming months and having the opportunity to talk to you about your children. I will be available in the library area or at the school gate in the mornings and hope to see many more of you at the next 'Coffee and Chat', Friday 15th September at 2pm. If there is anything else that you would like to discuss please do not hesitate to contact the office who will be able to make arrangements or pop your suggestions into the suggestion box outside my office.

Kindest regards,

Martin Moriarty 

The Community Learning Team met on Wednesday 20th April 2016 in class 11.  We discussed Miss Key's introduction for the year 6 Community Challenge Award, which is going very well.  It's the first year it's been run and we have 8 pupils who have nearly completed it.

We ware trying to encourage more people in the community to use our newly revamped library.  Parents are more than welcome to come in and read with their children after school.  There will hopefully be a library opening event, and we're currently looking for an author to come and cut the ribbon.  

We discussed the World Book Day photos making it into the local paper and noted that we need to make sure we get articles regularly into the Tribune again.  Mrs Riley will talk to the office staff about the process.  

The Citizenship Award Scheme will start for years 3 and 4 in September.  This is a precursor to the Year 6 Community Challenge Award.


Miss Frost brought to our attention the fact that our old school loog books are not being stored well and that we could loan them to the Record Office in Chelmsford where they will be logged and stored for public use.  We can get them back on loan at any time if we need them for school projects, but it means they will be cared for correctly in order to preserve them for as long as possible.  We all agreed that this should be done.

Our new school website is about to go live and will be a continual work in progress.  This governor blog will be updated regularly to keep our community informed about what happens behind the scenes at school.  There will be class pages for pupils and parents to get information from, names and photos of staff and other important documents.  The launch of phase 1 will be followed by additional phases to increase the content and make it as user friendly as possible.

There was a discussion about reintroducing the parent coffee afternoons that we used hold.  This time they would be governor led with the purpose of offering a regular opportunity for parents to come into school and talk to us about any concerns they have.  We've always had an open door policy, but recognise that parents feel comfortable approaching our school in a variety of ways.  Hopefully this will prove to be useful for some people.
