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 08 March 2021 update for parents and carers:
We are really looking forward to being able to welcome all children and staff back to the school site from Monday 08 March. We dearly hope that this will be the last extended period that children have to have away from school. As you know from other communication, we have been doing a considerable amount of work to review the curriculum, to make sure that it accurately addresses what our children now need, given the disruption over the last few months. I want to reassure you that it will be enjoyable to reengage the children in life at school, but also challenging so that where necessary we are able to carefully accelerate progress at all levels of achievement and ability in the school.
Children will need varying degrees of support to get ready for their return to school. Some children will be really eager to return, keen to see their friends and the staff who care about them. Other children may be anxious about returning to school and others may have difficulty comprehending what is happening to them. Please refer to our School Closure-Remote Learning Page if you need support to prepare your child for their return, where we have uploaded some resources that you may find helpful.
We are also in the process of updating our Risk Assessments to include updated control measures. The revised version for the children's full return from the 08 March can be accessed here. Please note that as on previous occasions, it may be subject to amendments as more information becomes available.
Furthermore, please access the latest parent guidance here.
As already shared with you, please note that from the 08 March, the before school care for working parents and parents of vulnerable children will be operating normally. However, the care operated by Energy Kidz will begin with the holiday scheme over the Easter holidays and then the after school care from Monday 12 April. Music provision will resume after the Easter holidays and swimming will resume once it is safe to do so, in line with the opening up of leisure services nationally. At each point that the provision is once again enhanced and enriched, we will share the update with you in advance of it happening.
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:
With thanks to all in our community for their continued patience and understanding during this challenging time.
What to do if you need to inform the school of a positive case 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 as soon as you are able to to alert us so that we can then take the required action to keep people safe and notify the community.
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 inform the community. With thanks in anticipation of your cooperation.
For the attention of all potential visitors to the school
We place great value on all of your support for the children's learning and well being at our school. However, given the unprecedented level of uncertainty that we all currently face, we cannot currently allow unscheduled visits to the school.
In order to visit the school, please make sure that you have agreed your visit with a member of the school's leadership team in advance. When we agree your visit we will send you a copy of our visitor's guidance which is designed to enable us to facilitate your visit as safely as possible. If you need to speak to somebody about your visit, either ring the school office on 0207 987 1753 or call our executive Headteacher on 07932 995 213.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you well during this period and we look forward to our continuing partnership with you.
