Catholic Life of the School


Liturgical year (2).jpg

  We aim to support, extend and clarify our children’s faith by:

  • developing spiritual, social and moral behaviour based on firm Christian ideals.
  • providing the experience of living in a community within the framework of home, school and parish.
  • preparing our children for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
  • enabling children to develop an understanding of our faith and love of liturgy, sacraments and prayer through a variety of celebration and worship.
  • enabling children to acquire the foundations of faith through the teaching of doctrine in the context of their own life experiences and stage of development.
  • sharing gospel values, and bringing the children to a deeper understanding and love of God.
  • striving to foster a living faith, which will touch every aspect of their lives.


The Way, the Truth and the Life

The way the truth and the life.png

We follow the The Way, the Truth & the Life  scheme of Religious Education, recommended by the Diocese of Shrewsbury. The partnership between home and school is further developed through the half termly newsletter outlining which topic each year group will be studying.  


Collective Worship.pngThe key focal point in each classroom is a dedicated prayer focus area.  The children are encouraged to take responsibility for ensuring this area reflects the liturgical year, as well as planning and preparing their Acts of Collective Worship.


The AngelusAngelus.png

The Angelus is prayed each day at St Luke's before the children have their lunch. A bell is rung in each classroom before the children lead the prayer.  



Our Patron Saint

St Luke the Evangelist.jpg

Saint Luke is often portrayed with pen in hand, reflecting the fact he recorded the third Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles. He is often shown with an ox, which is a symbol of sacrifice – the sacrifice Jesus made for the world. As the first Christian physician, Saint Luke is the patron saint of physicians and surgeons. For this reason, we honour Saint Luke on his feast day, 18th October, by praying through his intercession for doctors and those who care for the sick.


 Gospel Values

Gospel Values new.jpg

At St. Luke’s Catholic Primary School, Gospel Values and our mission statement underpin all aspects of  school life. Like our Patron Saint, our pupils are encouraged and empowered to take an active part in the spiritual life of the  school and by doing so provide example to others through their words and deeds. Each week, in our Celebration assembly, we give out our Pride Awards; this is where we celebrate those children who have been living out the Gospel Values within school over the past week.

31st September: CAFOD 'Go Green' Day

Following our assembly with Toni, we joined in with CAFOD's Go Green Day where all of our donations went towards purchasing some World Gifts. All of the children came to school wearing green and we shared some of the incredible work that the children produced during last week's 'Big Green Week'. The children also wrote prayers asking God to help us to protect our common home; these prayers were added to our School Prayer Tree in the school grounds.

On Ash Wednesday, we gathered together to pray and reflect on ways that we can pray, give and act during Lent. Pope Francis invited us to offer this day as a day of prayer and fasting for peace for communities around the world affected by war, particularly for the people of Ukraine. In classrooms, all children made Lenten promises during their Collective Worship.

Year 6 celebrated the first Class Mass of the academic year with Father James at St. Luke's Church. It was a special occasion as, for many children, it was the first time that they had returned to church since the coronavirus pandemic. They reflected on their Lenten promises and prayed for peace throughout the world. Reflection cards were given out to parishioners and parents reminding them to 'not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest...'.
