St Luke’s Church of England School is a Christian school for the whole community. By admitting children on the basis of the proximity of their home to the school, St Luke’s CE School is fully inclusive and welcomes children and families of all faiths and none.
Our vision is for an education of the highest quality, achieving good academic outcomes for pupils and producing well-rounded individuals who combine a care for others with a love for learning and an appreciation of the importance of spiritual and physical well-being.
We aim to serve local children, parents and the community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.
The strap line secure foundations — excellent practice — faith, hope and love was devised by governors and staff in the first year of opening and underpins all the decisions we make at St Luke’s CE School.
‘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.
Each term we focus on a different set of core Christian values to create a welcoming and caring environment where everyone is valued equally.
