Here at St Luke’s, we have worked with parents, children, Staff, St Luke’s Church and Governors to develop our own set of core values. We use these values below to guide the way we talk to children and each other and to guide us in everything we do.
During each half term, we focus on two of the values through class work as well as in whole school assemblies so ensuring that all the values are covered in the course of a year.
We want all our children to:
