ERASMUS + PROJECT 2019 to 2022

From 2019 to 2022, members of school staff took part in an Erasmus + project with the objective of giving staff the necessary skills & knowledge to enable all children at our school- from Nursery to Year 6- to receive high-quality Spanish lessons.

Once funding had been secured, staff were given the opportunity to attend a week of intensive & immersive Spanish language lessons in Spain during the school holidays. Trips were made to both Valencia and Santander to attend these courses.

During the course, staff were able to visit a 'sister' school in Santander and learn how English is taught to Spanish children. As well as this, they had opportunities to network with other language teachers from across the UK to share teaching ideas and good practice. They were also able to get involved with a range of cultural activities such as Flamenco dancing and Spanish cuisine.

Staff said that the experience was hugely valuable and that they were now confident to deliver Spanish lessons at St. Luke's (many staff having no previous experience of Spanish).

Please see below for some pictures from the project.

  • 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.

    For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
    Proverbs 2:6


  • 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.

    For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
    Jeremiah 29:11


  • Above all we aim to show compassion to ourselves and each other. By developing strong relationships and friendships we develop a true understanding of each other.

    ‘Love thy neighbour…’
    Luke 10:28


  • We are a family. We show compassion for all members of our community irrespective of gender, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. We strive to be ‘courageous advocates’ for our local, national and global community.

    There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
    Galatians 3:28
