Pastoral Team

A very warm welcome from the Pastoral Team.

Mrs Walling-Lewis and Miss Stephenson are based in the nurture room.

Through our unconditional warmth and acceptance, we work together with pupils, staff, parents, carers and governors, to enable all to feel included and thrive at Skerton St Luke’s.

We model positive relationships, and run several intervention groups throughout the school year, including LEGO Friends, and friendship and transition groups.

We are both mental health champions for our school. We support all members of our school family, and promote good mental health and wellbeing, which helps children to progress with both their academic work in class and their relationships with classmates at playtimes. We are also both designated Safeguarding Leads in school.

We work closely with other schools and agencies in our area, to share good practice and widen the experience of pupils and staff.

We believe we are a school which fosters a nurturing approach to our children.

We look forward to working alongside and with you throughout the time that your child is with us.

You can contact us by either ringing our direct phone line, 01524 65445 Option 3, or popping in to the school office and asking to see one of us.

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.
