Due to our “relentless drive to make improvements in the school…the proportion of pupils working above age-related expectations is increasing over time.”
Our School Values
Welcome to St Luke's C of E Primary School
Hearts overflowing with truth and love
I am really happy to welcome you to St. Luke’s C.E. Primary School where we are committed to supporting our children to be happy, successful, generous and fulfilled throughout their lives.
We believe that each of us is unique and valued by God – all made in his image and so we aspire to provide an outstanding education for all.
We pride ourselves that we know each and every child inside out. We do our best to help each child find their strengths and talents so that they can be challenged and then flourish.
The impact of our school’s values, ‘safety, responsibility, kindness, respect, enthusiasm, partnership, fairness, honesty, excellence and courage’, in a Christian context, permeates the life of the school impacting on children’s personal, spiritual and academic development. In practice, this means our children are knowledgeable and want to achieve their very best.
At St. Luke’s we are on a journey together. We value our partnership with Christ Church which contributes to our distinct and rich Christian ethos as well as all partners in children’s well-being and learning. We encourage all members of our community to live and work by the school’s Christian vision, ‘Hearts overflowing with truth and love’, the origin of which lies in the Gospel of St. Luke, when the disciples are on the road to Emmaus.
Together we strive to promote an understanding and respect of the diverse communities of ‘the Island’ that we serve and we hope that this is evident in the quality of relationships enjoyed by the school community.
If you would like to get a clear sense of our school, please read our SIAMs Report from December 2017, available on this website.

Our Latest News
Covid - 19 01 September 2021 update for parents and carers:
We are really looking forward to being able to welcome all children and staff back to the school for the start of the new school year on Monday 06 September 2021. During the last two school years, we have experienced widespread disruption. We dearly hope that that is behind us now and this year will run smoothly, so that we can all focus our attentions on what is most important - your children's learning.
To enable the smooth running of the school, with the intention of ensuring minimal disruption to children's learning and education, having considered the full range of advice and guidance available to us from the DfE and Public Health, we have made the decision to keep many safety measures in place.
Please refer to these key pieces of information to help you prepare for your child's return to school:
The school's Covid Secure Risk Assessment
Letter from the Head of School - 03 September with a summary of measures for the children's return
An additional Risk Assessment, for the use of our Swimming Pool during this time: Swimming Pool Risk Assessment
There remains the possibility that some children may need to self isolate at some point and so for that reason, please find here a copy of our Remote Learning guidance.
Furthermore, we have to hold in mind that the Covid virus remains part of our daily lives. As such, there may come a time when further restrictions need to be put in place, if only for a short time, to curb the transmission of the virus. In preparation for that possibility please see the following, which details what we may have to do, if further restrictions do arise.
The school's Outbreak Management Plan
We recognise that following the disruption that many children have experienced, after such a long summer break, some children may be feeling anxious about the start of the new school year. As always, staff will be vigilant to children's needs however if you have any particular concerns, please do not hesitate to share those with us. Under the Parents' section of this website, you can see details of the full range of support for children's well being that we have here and so rest assured, if there are concerns, we will be able to help.
Please note that our wrap around care provision is available from the first day that the children return: Before School club from 7:30am and Energy Kidz after school club from 3:30pm until 6pm.
If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate in contacting our Executive headteacher, Rebecca Abrahams on 07932 995 213 or email her on: firstname.lastname@example.org
With thanks to all in our community for their continued patience and understanding during this challenging time.
What to do in relation to positive cases of Covid-19
If your child has a positive test result, if this is identified during normal school hours, please call the school office on 0207 987 1753 or email email@example.com as soon as you are able to to alert us so that we can then take the required action to keep people safe.
If you receive the positive test result outside of working hours (after 5pm during the working week, during the weekends or over the holidays) please phone the Executive Headteacher on 07932 995 213 and leave a voice message with your name, your child's name and your contact name. As soon as she receives the message, she will contact you to discuss it and then take the necessary steps to keep people safe.
Please note that under the new guidance, if a child has symptoms they need to get a PCR test and self isolate until they get the results. Please alert us at school if this is happening, so that we can decide whether your child is well enough to undertake Remote Learning for the period that they are self isolating.
If a child is a close contact of someone who has tested positively for the virus, the child is not required to self isolate but is advised to get a PCR test. Where possible, if the PCR test could be done outside of the normal school day, together we can reduce any disruption to your child's learning. This means that even if someone has tested positive in your household, your child can come to school, so long as they themselves do not have symptoms.
