Our School Vision
The children of St Luke’s are nurtured by a caring and committed team who make the children
their number one priority. As a community, we are respectful, connected and positive, and we
value and trust one another. At the heart of our curriculum are our core Christian values of; trust,
forgiveness, humility, hope, justice and resilience. These values are the foundations on which we
build our learning.
Our responsible team have consistently high expectations for their community. They always act
with integrity and are role models for our children. Our community is compassionate, forgiving and non-judgemental.
We are motivated and self-aware learners who recognise the importance of collaboration and taking risks. We
communicate effectively and disagree well.
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth came knowledge and understanding.”
Our school prepares our children well for life beyond St Luke’s; equipping them with the skills,
knowledge and understanding they need to become responsible and resourceful citizens. Our
curriculum is relevant to the 21st Century and prepares our children for their future, enabling
them to show both local and global responsibility. We ensure our children recognise the value of
good physical and mental health and we support children through life’s challenges.
“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm
you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
Our children master the skills and knowledge across the curriculum, valuing both process and
product. Our curriculum has high expectations for all, regardless of gender, background, ability or
culture. Learning promotes creativity and curiosity. Our children are independent and resilient
learners who are keen to embrace challenge. They show respect and take responsibility for their
actions and words.
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control.” (Timothy 1:7)
Our community is welcoming. Parents are positively engaged with all aspects of their child’s
education and school experience. As a result, parents and school are effective partners.
The Leadership team and Governors actively promote and role model the school’s vision and
values; they are forward thinkers, wider thinkers and intuitive thinkers. They are trusted by
children, parents and staff to maintain high standards, lead change and work for the best interest
of the school community.
At St Luke’s we are all God’s children; we learn to care and we care to learn.
