St. Luke’s School is located on the Isle of Dogs in the heart of Docklands. It is a successful two form of entry school and is currently attended by over 400 pupils from 3-11 years.
At St. Luke’s we deliver a broad, rich and varied curriculum which includes a range of extra-curricular learning experiences through music, sport, art and educational trips.
In this section of our website you will find key information about the school and its performance. You can read the latest Ofsted and SIAMs report, and see how we plan to develop the school to continue its improvement. You can also find the school policies which outline how we act in key areas and situations.
‘Hearts overflowing with truth and love’
Our new school motto stems from the story towards the end of the gospel of St. Luke when the disciples ‘crestfallen’ are on the road to Emmaus. The story begins with the total bleakness of people whose dreams have been shattered, facing a dark future because the cruellest of providences has happened to someone they’ve loved more than anyone else in the world. Then God in his providence brings a stranger into their lives and they feel a growing openness to him. They cast their cares on him maybe for an hour or two. Could he be someone who might help them . . . or not? Their faces reflected the state of their hearts, utterly downcast (v.17), but after he had listened and responded to them their hearts caught fire (v.32). Later, at supper, they realise that this is not a stranger at all, but Jesus who has risen from the dead.
This story declares to all mankind the reality of new life through the kindness of the living Jesus who does come near us. We hope you agree that this motto captures utter joy that we want children to experience, through their learning here at our school, the personal qualities that we hope they will develop and the impact that we hope they will have on one another.
Sports, music, drama, coding, gardening, art and dance clubs are run before and after school. Information is given about these as they commence. We also provide a breakfast club before school and the after school club is run by Energy Kidz. For current prices, please contact the school.
Every Friday, a school newsletter is sent out with lots of news for parents.
