Our Relationship With St Luke’s Church

We have very strong links with St Luke’s Church, Skerton.  Most of our governors come from the church foundation, and many of our children and families enjoy church related activities, such as choir, Boy’s Brigade and Girl’s Association, serving at church, and family craft activities.

We regularly have worship sessions and services in church as a school, and the Vicar is very visible within the school community.  The children join the elderly members of the church community for lunch and sharing of memories regularly, and both groups really enjoy this time together.

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.
