Due to our “relentless drive to make improvements in the school…the proportion of pupils working above age-related expectations is increasing over time.”

 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. 


We would like to take this opportunity to wish you well during this period and we look forward to our continuing partnership with you. 

Our Values

Welcome to St Luke's C of E primary school

Rebecca Abrahams,
Executive Headteacher 

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.

   If you would like to come and visit us, please contact the school office on 0207 987 1753 and we will look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely,

Rebecca Abrahams
