Our Religious Values

At Skerton St Luke’s we celebrate our close relationship with St Luke’s Church, and Christian values are embedded into our daily lives at school.  We know that as our children leave school, they will need knowledge and skills to arm them in the next steps of their education. We also believe that the Christian values we explore and understand will become their guidance in the future.  The way in which our children put these Christian values into practice in their learning and play makes our school truly distinctive.

Over the course of two years, we explore 12 core Christian values. 

These are:

  • Generosity
  • Compassion
  • Courage
  • Forgiveness
  • Friendship
  • Respect
  • Thankfulness
  • Trust
  • Perseverance
  • Justice
  • Service
  • Truthfulness

We take an in-depth look at the meaning of one of these Christian values each half term, alongside the teaching of learning skills, to build our understanding about being a healthy child of God.

Our Collective Worship 2018-19


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.
