Please park considerately around our school and keep our children safe!

We have had a number of complaints from residents of the new housing estate next to school. We have been informed that parents are parking inconsiderately by blocking resident’s driveways and some are parking dangerously at the junction or on the Zig-Zag lines, causing visibility issues for vehicles exiting the junction and pedestrians of all ages who are crossing the road. Lancashire County Council have informed us that if anyone parks in a restricted area, they could face a fine of £70 – we recently had a traffic warden outside issuing these fines. Restricted areas include: Zig zags and school entrances, dropped kerbs, resident’s driveways and opposite or within 10 meters of a junction – so that children can see cars and cars can see children.








Reverend Nikki Mann

Rev Nikki will be ordained Priest on Saturday 29th June at Blackburn Cathedral.  Once she is ordained she will take over as Curate-in-charge of St Luke’s and St Chad’s.  We are very excited by this news and look forward to working with her as she continues the work she has already started in Skerton and Ryelands.


Mrs Hatton is retiring

At the end of this school year, Mrs Hatton will be retiring after 32 years working at St Luke’s School.  We are planning some special celebrations to say thank you for all her hard work over the years. As we put together a memory book, we would love for you or your children, to share memories and thoughts that we could add to this book.  If you would like to add a thought, memory or message for Mrs Hatton, please email them to Mrs Armistead and these will be added to the memory book.

If you would like to add a donation towards a gift, please put your donation in an envelope and label it for the attention of Mrs Armistead. Your name will be added to Mrs Hatton’s card once Mrs Armistead has received them.

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.

Teachers are very helpful, friendly and approachable
