Ofsted, SIAMS and DfE Links
On 22 and 23 March, St. Luke’s School was graded GOOD by Ofsted. We are extremely pleased to be able to share the final Ofsted Report with you.
We are proud of our achievements, particularly given the fact that the Ofsted Framework had recently changed and that Covid-19 has created a difficult climate for all education providers. Coviid-19 particularly impacted upon our school in terms of staff absence.
St Luke's continues to be a good school
'Pupils enjoy coming to school'
'Pupils are polite and respectful to others'
'The school's values and ethos, such as being confident and responsible, are evident across the school'
'Pupils are safe and said that they feel safe'
'Pupils with SEND are fully included in lessons'
Our Early Years:
'Pupils respond well to routines'
'Children get off to a strong start in the early years'
Learning at St Luke's:
'Leaders are ambitious for all pupils', including those with SEND'
'The school's curriculum is well planned and sequenced'
'Leaders have a clear rationale of the important knowledge that pupils need to know'
'Pupils have positive attitudes towards their learning'
'Wide ranging opportunities are on offer to promote pupils' wider development and interests'
The report also outlines some of the areas that we are developing as a school and gives us tangible next steps.
The school is currently undertaking training for Read, Write Inc, a systematic, synthetic phonics programme, which will be introduced to families later in the summer tern, will ensure that staff have the expertise to teach all pupils including the weakest readers and that pupils have the reading books that closely match the sound that they know.
As a forward thinking school, this is always trying to become better for the benefit of our children, we embrace the next steps and look forward to meeting them.

On 27th February 2017 we received a visit form an inspector. She looked at the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist School's inspection framework and grade descriptors.
The inspector, Imogen Woods, spent the whole day speaking to the school's leaders, staff, parents, learners, the RE Subject Leader and governors. Evidence was gathered from Collective Worship, a Learning Walk, pupil and parent voice, interviews with governors, support staff, teachers and the RE Subject Leader.
She focused on:
- the distinctiveness and effectiveness of St. Luke's as a Church of England school ?
- the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meeting the needs of all learners ?
- the impact of Collective Worship on the school community ?
- the effectiveness of the leadership and management of the school as a church school
All areas were judged to be 'outstanding'.
We are all very thankful that the work we do for our learners and our St Luke's family is outstanding and are blessed that we have such a hardworking and passionate team that inspire children to achieve very high results whilst bringing joy to the lives of others.
Although judged to be 'outstanding' there is always more to do! We are all on a journey and will now support others in our church school community to provide high challenge, strong support and deep partnership through ambitious collaboration.
