The thematic approach at St Luke’s enables us to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which enthuses the children.

It promotes creativity and enables the children to develop a range of skills which can be applied in a wider context. So with this approach, more opportunities arise for the children to have a variety of experiences: guest speakers; theme days; educational visits and shared learning experiences across the key stage and whole school.

Alongside this, where necessary, English, Maths, Science and ICT are taught as individual subjects. Children are encouraged to produce their very best work across all areas of the curriculum and regularly reviewed group and individual targets help them to achieve this. This ensures high standards and pleasing progress are maintained throughout the curriculum.

At St Luke’s we use the Oxford Reading Tree as our reading scheme, supplemented by others for breadth. Our phonics scheme is Floppy Phonics.
