Educating through faith, hope and love.
St Luke’s Church of England School is a school for the whole community. Our vision has Jesus’ promise “I came to give life—life in all its fullness” at its heart (John 10:10). We believe that all children deserve an education of the highest quality in order to flourish and enjoy a life filled with meaning and purpose.
Our children combine a care for others with a love for learning, and an appreciation of the importance of spiritual, mental and physical well-being.
We serve local children, parents and the community within the context of Christian belief and practice.
Each term we focus on a different set of core Christian values which supports this vision and helps us to create an environment where everyone is valued equally.
‘Jesus said to them, ‘If you can believe, all things are possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23
We believe that faith is the firm foundation in all that we do. It is our faith in God, faith in ourselves and faith in each other that enables us to succeed in life.
‘God’s word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path’. Psalm 119:105
At St Luke’s, we have high hopes and aspirations for all our children. Having hope isn’t always easy, but it is that beacon of light during difficult times that allows us to learn from our mistakes and never give up.
‘Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.’ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is all encompassing. We show love in the relationships we have with each other and in our actions as part of a wider school community. It underpins our ‘Golden Rules’ and helps us to truly value each other and the world around us.
