Opening minds, learning through challenge and Celebrating God’s World


    We are committed to:


     Opening Minds

  • By working in partnership with parents to promote a culture of learning and enjoyment.
  • By nurturing growth in self-confidence, resilience, perseverance and personal growth.
  • By creating a curriculum that encourages children to look to their local and national community and beyond to see themselves as Global Citizens.

Learning Through Challenge

  • By achieving consistent standards of teaching and learning that allows everyone to make excellent progress.
  • By providing challenge and opportunity within a stimulating and creative environment.
  • By working enthusiastically and cooperatively to enable each child to develop an excitement for learning.

Celebrating God’s World

  • By working in partnerships with parents, the Church and the community to respect and celebrate the world around us.
  • By reaching out in community locally and widely to contribute fully as responsible citizens.
  • By growing an awareness, understanding and respect for diversity in the world around us.



Being a school that celebrates its close relationship with The Church, Christian Values are embedded into the daily life of Skerton St Luke’s.  We know that as our children leave school they will need lots of knowledge and skills to arm them in the next steps of their education, however we know that the Christian Values we explore and understand will stand them in good stead for the future.  The special way in which our children put these Christian Values into practise in their learning and play, makes our school truly distinctive.

Over the course of two years, we explore 12 core Christian Values.  These are:

  • Generosity

  • Compassion

  • Courage

  • Forgiveness

  • Friendship

  • Respect

  • Thankfulness

  • Trust

  • Perseverance

  • Justice

  • Service

  • Truthfulness
