Welcome to Year Six!

A warm welcome awaits children in Year 6! In Year 6, the children further develop and embed skills they will need for a successful transition to secondary school.

The residential trip to London, at the beginning of the Autumn term, develops independence, perseverance and resilience.

In class, the curriculum is delivered to allow a broader choice in research and presentation of ideas. Year 6 children also take on the role of ‘Buddies’ to Reception, Play Leaders and JLT– helping younger children to sort out minor problems at break times – which allows them to reflect on the effect of their own, and others’, behaviour.

We aim for children to leave Skerton St Luke’s and begin secondary school as confident, considerate and well-rounded individuals.

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
