A message from Ann Dwulit - Headteacher

A warm welcome to St Luke’s Church of England Primary School. We are a very well established, popular school for children aged 3 to 11 years situated in the heart of EC1. We have been educating generation after generation of local families since 1698. As we are just one form entry per year group, we know every child very well and they are valued, nurtured and educated to a very high standard. Christian values are central to our ethos and the fantastic staff team naturally and willingly go the extra mile for the children. As a Church of England primary school, we are led by the teaching of Jesus as we work with families in actively preparing children for life with a vision based upon the Parable of the Sower from Luke 8 V5-15: ‘A sower went out to sow…Some seed fell on good soil, and when it grew, it produced a hundredfold’. We follow Jesus, the Sower and teach the word of God which are the seeds which thrive on our good St Luke’s soil.

Our six Christian Values: trust, service, friendship and family, kindness, perseverance and thankfulness are cultivated on St Luke’s good soil so that children consistently and continually grow and flourish. Christian values are very much alive in the life of our school-in relationships, in actions and in our ethos. We cultivate Christian values as the children grow in our care. God is always sewing good seeds and we take his lead as every child and every person in our community is precious and loved by God and we do our best to ensure everyone flourishes- the children, staff team and our community.

St Luke’s is an exciting, happy and thriving place in which to learn and work. We have a passion for learning which is driven by high quality teaching, a broad, balanced and bespoke curriculum which children enjoy. We teach philosophy and have specialist music, sports, modern foreign language, dance and drama teachers. We use London and the world itself as a resource drawing inspiration from all countries, cultures and religions. We have an organised ‘Learning for Life’ programme which is based on enquiry led learning so children naturally explore and routinely question as we cultivate creativity, independence and individuality. Over the last 20 years, hundreds of professionals from all walks of life have been interviewed by year 6 from doctors to lawyers to bricklayers who have inspired the children and opened the doors of possibility to them, explaining how they got to where they are today. Past pupils come back with success stories and their children now attend the school as life goes on.

Our mission is to ‘reach higher than we dream to become the person we really want to be as we do the best we can for the world, for each other, for ourselves and for God through faith, hope and love.’ We endeavour to broaden children’s horizons so they are confident young people who believe in themselves and feel they can achieve anything with confidence, determination, hard work and perseverance.

St Luke’s has been in a federation with Moreland Primary School (which is 5 minutes up City Road) since 2011. A federation is a partnership between schools with one governing body. The core purpose of the federation is to provide two consistently fantastic, successful, happy schools for our community which we do year after year. It is high-quality teaching and learning, consistency in practice, high expectations and high level of care for every child which drives us. We do what we do because the children, their care and their education matter more than anything. I hope you are able to find all the information you need from this website. You are most welcome to visit and see for yourself what a great school St Luke’s is. The children are happy and tell us they love their school which make all that we do very worthwhile. Come and see for yourself!
