Erasmus + Project

Over the past 3 years members of school staff have been taking part in an Erasmus + project with the objective of giving staff the necessary skills and knowledge to enable all the children in our school from Nursery to Year 6 to receive Spanish lessons.

What the Project Involved

St. Luke's CE were successful in receiving erasmus+ funding to provide intensive Spanish language courses for any members of St. Luke's staff that wanted to. They attended a week of immersive and intensive Spanish language lessons in Spain during the school holidays. These took place in Santander and Valencia in Spain.

During the course staff were able to visit our partner school in Santander and learn from how they teach English to their children. They had opportunities to network with other language teachers from across the U.K. to share teaching ideas and good practice. They took part in a range of cultural activities from Flamenco dancing, to paella cooking classes. These courses were invaluable to our staff, many of whom have continued with their Spanish language learning since they have returned to the U.K.

Now we have a partner school in Spain, children at St. Luke's have the opportunity to write to the pupils of that school in Spanish and in return receive letters from their pupils who are learning English.

All the staff that attended the courses gave positive feedback as to how much more confident they now feel delivering Spanish lessons to our children at St. Luke's. 

Even though languages are only statutory in KS2, we feel proud that we are now able to teach Spanish to our younger children too, to start their langauge learning journey at a younger age.

Please see below a selection of photos from our trips to Spain and some of the activities we were able to take part in.

  • Through our Christian school and ethos, we all aim to believe in ourselves, each other, our teachers, leaders and parents. With reflection and prayer, we trust in God that our prayers will be heard. We know that every child is a child of Jesus, treating everyone with respect and dignity that they deserve.

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
    Matthew 7:7


  • We aim to build our pupils’ and teachers’ confidence, delight in their teaching & learning and discipline in seeking wisdom; gaining the truth, knowledge, understanding and skills they will need in their everyday lives. We offer a broad and inspiring curriculum that nurtures emotional intelligence, creativity and remembering of important knowledge. We teach and learn collaboratively leading to our pupils developing the life skills of learning.

  • We aim to be the best we can be. Whilst nurturing our pupils’ and staff, we encourage and drive them to aspire to achieve their hopes and dreams. We are honest in the fact that this will take hard work, perseverance and resilience.
