The curriculum at St. Luke's

At St. Luke's C.E (Aided) Primary School it is our intent that all learners in all curriculum areas learn more, remember more, connect and apply skills and knowledge more for life long learning.


Our school vision for all learners is 'let your light shine, live life to the full, respect and care for all, create a happy and safe world for everyone.'



At St. Luke's C.E (Aided) Primary School we ensure that we plan and deliver work to meet the requirements of the Statutory Primary National Curriculum which came into effect in September 2014.The curriculum at St. Luke's C.E (Aided) Primary School comprises all learning and other experiences that we plan for our pupils. The national curriculum forms one part of the school curriculum.  

We have purchased the 'Essentials-full spectrum curriculum' and by using this as a basis for our curriculum planning ensure that all of the requirements of the National Curriculum are covered thoroughly. This curriculum helps us to make learning more personalised as support is planned for those working towards or beyond the expected age related milestones at the end of Year 2, Year 4 and Year 6. 

At St. Luke's we strive to ensure that our curriculum allows children to develop the essential literacy and numeracy skills and to make progress that is good or better in Reading, Writing and Mathematics whilst ensuring that the curriculum is one that is broad and balanced to allow the children to develop to their full potential in all areas of development.


We offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based. Our school curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. We strive to nurture an inclusive community of learners who are encouraged to constantly achieve their very best.



We are proud of our distinctive character as a Church of England school and make provision for a daily act of collective worship, teaching religious education to pupils at each key stage. Our Vision for all learners and our Golden Expectations are based upon stories and teachings from the Bible.



Our curriculum is based upon the Cognitive Load Theory. Please look at the individual pages for more information about the teaching and learning in each curriculum area.
