British Values

At Skerton St Luke’s CE School, all that we do aims to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that the fundamental British values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the Christian ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and, in particular, our RE, SMSC, PSHE and Citizenship lessons provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop children's understanding.

Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm, and demonstrate an excellent understanding of their application to their own lives. We ensure children have exposure to a wide range of experiences beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through, for example, sporting events, a range of visits, and use of outdoor education centres. Their strong rooted Christian values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.

British Values - Curriculum Overview


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.
