Big Congratulations to two of our amazing staff members.  Miss Tomlinson got married over half term and she is now Mrs Stones in school and Miss Lee got engaged to her lovely boyfriend.  We are so happy for both of these lovely ladies.

Just before half term the Governors held interviews for the roles of Assistant Headteacher and Permanent Class Teacher.  It is with great pleasure and excitement that we are letting you know the Mrs Goodwin and Miss Garnett are our new Assistant Headteachers and Miss Lee is now a permanent teacher in school.

We welcome Mr Andrew to our school.  He will be our new Year 2 teacher for this next academic year and will take on the responsibility of Key Stage 1 Lead and being a part of our Senior Leadership Team.

New School Showerproof Bookbags

We are introducing new showerproof bookbags in school.  These can be purchased at the Uniform & Leisure Shop in Lancaster at a price of £6.99.

All Infants will be presented with a new showerproof bookbag as from September in the hope that in inclement weather the reading books inside will be better protected. We will no longer be using the current fabric book bags so please discard of it or use it for personal at home.


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.

Parent of a child with SEND

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.

Prospective Parent

Teachers are very helpful, friendly and approachable
