Welcome to Year One!

In Year 1, we continue to build on the children’s knowledge through a balance of structured teaching and child initiated activities.

The teaching of phonics continues to be a key focus to support the development of the children’s reading and writing. Their skills of decoding will be measured towards the end of the year in the phonics-screening test.

As the year progresses, we focus on developing the children’s independence to aid a smooth transition into Year 2.

It’s a lovely community. We all feel like a part of St Luke’s family. My child loves her teachers and knows other members of staff. It’s lovely to walk into school and people know my child’s name and always say hello to her, even teachers from other classes or Mrs Armistead.


I know when I drop my kids off they are happy and safe and they both enjoy their time in school.


Thank you for not only teaching my daughter but also caring for her. She’s really happy at school and is making great progress in all areas of learning.


The staff have been so supportive of my child with Special Educational Needs. They are amazing and it makes me confident that my daughter is well looked after and if she has any problems they will help.

The Reception Open Day really showed the school in a good light. The Headteacher showed us round and knew all of the pupil’s names. All of the children we met were friendly and polite but more importantly they were all smiling whilst learning.

Teachers are very helpful, friendly and approachable
