We look forward to welcoming ALL our children back to school...
As we enter the time of Advent and preparing for Christmas, I would like to thank you all for the fantastic effort you have made to follow school rules and work together to keep each other safe. I am very proud that we have managed to keep the school open, apart from Friday, throughout this Autumn Term and I am hopeful that we will be able to continue this over the next few weeks. You should all be very proud of your children and the effort they have all put into their learning this term. Every child in school has made progress in their learning, been engaged in class and continued to develop friendships and resilience throughout this strange time.
Even though Lancaster and Morecambe have become more COVID safe we need to continue to follow government guidelines until we are told otherwise. We are planning events at Christmas that will make the experience as normal as possible for the children in school. Please continue to look out for class notices on Class Dojo and messages via parent app that will inform you of all we have planned. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy time as you make your Christmas preparations.
Thank you for your patience and supportive comments following our first day back on Friday. We are all working to see what the ‘new normal’ is going to actually look like so I appreciate you working with us during this time. After much feedback from you, the parents, and staff following the drop off and pick ups last week I have decided to completely overhaul the plan.
I hope that you have all had a safe and happy summer. We have met together as a staff on our first INSET day on Tuesday 1st and we are all looking forward to welcoming your child/ children back to school on Friday 4th September. New reception children will be joining us soon and parents have been advised of this separately.
Thank you all for your amazing support over this extremely challenging time. I know how hard it has been for everyone including our children. Many of you are sending in notes of support and I can’t tell you how much this means to the staff in school.
This was our first week with all staff back in the building and all 7 classrooms being used as pods. It has been a challenge to get used to the new way of working but the children and staff have been fantastic at trying to keep to the rules to keep us all safe.

Thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to read our newsletter.... At St Luke's we work together in our distinctive Christian vision to follow Jesus’ teaching, and become our best selves. We aim for everything we do to be clearly reflected in our mission statement:
Opening minds, learning through challenge and celebrating God’s world
Luke 10: 27 ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’
We are looking at '40 Acts' over Lent considering spiritual, learning, digital, mental and physical health. We hope that all our children and their families will take part in Lent and continue to promote a healthy wellbeing along with acts of kindness in their daily life.
Please take a little time to read our newsletter which includes important information for you as a parent or carer. This weeks' newsletter covers Young Voices, School Aid 20 and looks at the Christian Values we explore in school and endeavour to live by every day.
Happy New Year and a huge welcome back to you all. I hope that everyone had a fabulous Christmas. Please visit our school calendar (or Parent APP) and note all of the upcoming dates for this very busy Spring Term.
2019 has been an amazing and full year. Mrs Armistead would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your ongoing support as we continue to make our school a wonderful place to be, where children are happy and learning. We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
With only a handful of weeks to go until Christmas, children are already excited and enjoying the run up to the big day. In school we will be looking at this special time of the year and reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas. Our newsletter and website will keep you up to date with all the up and coming events and news at Skerton St Luke's Primary School.
We are well in to the second half of Autumn term. Children are busy in class with their learning and are preparing for the end of term activities such as the school Christmas Fair and Nativities. Please keep up to date with what is happening at school via the school calendar on the website or on Parent APP - we don't want you to miss out.
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.Parent

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.Parent
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.Prospective Parent
