At St Luke’s, we aim to deliver a curriculum which caters for each child’s individual needs, within the framework of the National Curriculum. We recognise and value the cultural diversity and language backgrounds of all the children, allowing equal opportunities for all. This has been recognised through our 'School of Sanctuary' Award.
St Luke’s has a dedicated team of teaching staff who teach and support children whose first language / home spoken language is not English. This enables these children to flourish, build confidence and develop their skills in English, Maths and across all curriculum areas.
As a school we belong to a very diverse local community. At St Luke’s we strive to enhance pupils understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society, by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity.
The EAL teaching team work alongside the Home School Liaison Officer to visit and work with new arrival pupils and families to welcome them into the community. This enables school to identify their cultural and learning needs and helps them integrate and become familiar with the school community.
