New Reception Class 2020

From now until September

Due to Covid 19, we are unable to invite you and your child into school during this moment in time for the usual Induction Meeting and pre-school visits and staff will not be permitted to visit nurseries and other child care providers. We understand how frustrating and upsetting this must be, it is a worrying time for us all!   We are looking forward to meeting you and your child and getting to know each and every one to continue their learning journey at Skerton St Luke’s.   Until then, please take the time to read the following documents which will help prepare your child for their next chapter...

We have also put together a few welcome messages for our new reception children and families.  Please follow the link to our Facebook page to view it....  you will need the sound on....  and don't worry, you don't need an account.


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.
