It is our intent at St Luke’s that children develop positive attitudes to their physical and mental well-being. We believe that the physical and cognitive development of children are intrinsically linked and we aspire to offer children life skills that will positively impact on their future. To this end we endeavour to deliver excellent opportunities to develop a healthy life-long love of physical activity We aspire to develop a first class teaching and learning environment where both staff and students enjoy working hard together to achieve success.
We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. We want children to be motivated and to challenge themselves to raise their own expectations and fulfilling our mission statement of being the best that they can be.
We are very lucky to have their P.E. lessons taught by Premier Sport.
