"High standards, High expectations, High acheivement, where every member of the school community is valued."
It is with great pleasure that we are able to introduce you to St. Luke's CE VA School.
At St. Luke's we aim to ensure that every child achieves their potential in both their academic achievement and their personal development. We aim to identify and nurture every child's talents, and to provide them with a safe and well disciplined environment to do so.
We do not expect to do this alone, rather we expect to work in partnership with our parents and carers and as such we greatly value our home/school links.
At St. Luke's we aim high but never forget the importance of a childhood. We believe that the curriculum should be broad and rich, providing memories and experiences that will last a life time!
THIS is a Church of England Voluntary Aided School within the Diocese of Winchester. The published admission limit for each year group is 60 in Reception and Year's 1-6. As starting school for the first time can be quite a daunting time for both parents and children we have a very comprehensive and specialised programme arranged for our Reception Children and their parents. This is designed to help parents and children to become familiar with the school and ensure that our youngest children feel happy and confident throughout their time at St. Luke's C.E. Primary.
Our School has a strong Christian Ethos and this is based upon Christian principles. Our school code reflects the way in which we live and work as a school community. It is displayed around the school and in each classroom. All our children are familiar with it and it is used to set standards and expectations for everyone in our school.
The P.T.F.A play an active and important part within school life. Not only do we have great fun with the events that we organise, but we raise money to provide the children in the school, with a variety of equipment. The regular events that we hold annually include junior/infant disco's, Yuletide Yummies, sponsored walk and the summer barbecue. Other events that have been very successful have been a quiz night, ladies evening, fashion show and Easter craft activities. We also provide a drama play at the end of each year and Year Six participate in an event together prior to moving to secondary school.
We also subsidise swimming within the school and support the upkeep of the mini-bus. To make both school sites look inviting we have provided plants and holders and picture frames for the walls. Some of the equipment we have provided for the children include TV and videos in all classrooms, listening centres and playground equipment. During the summer break of 2004 we had large outdoor equipment put into the infants playground which included a train, pirate ship etc. The most important part of our fund raising is that we provide a safe and warm environment for the children in all the events we organise.
We are always looking for new members and new ideas so if you are interested in joining our P.T.F.A please contact the school for information.
