Ofsted, March 2024: “This is a school where pupils learn to be themselves, to respect difference and to speak out when they see injustice….Pupils respond to the school’s high expectations for their academic outcomes….Pupils’ excellent behaviour means that staff can focus on the joy of teaching.” Ofsted, March 2024.


Safeguarding & Child Protection

St Luke’s CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and we ensure that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.

School Safeguarding Team

Our school has a number of members of staff who are responsible for safeguarding:

  • Mrs Sharon Cowey, headteacher and trained Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)
  • Mrs Fiona Govan, deputy headteacher and trained DSL
  • Mrs Becky Wilson, special educational needs and/or disabilities co-ordinator (SENDCo) and trained DSL
  • Mrs Ali Dwan, parent support adviser and attendance manager
  • Mrs Carol Kerr, Link Governor for Safeguarding and Child Protection

Safeguarding Procedures and Cause for Concern

Our first priority is a child’s happiness and welfare and as such, we recognise the need to provide a safe environment and to take reasonable action to ensure the safety of all our children.  The school, through its curriculum, promotes safeguarding by teaching pupils how to stay safe, how to protect themselves and how to take responsibility for their own and others’ safety.

However, there may be occasions when we have reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment or other forms of abuse and are therefore at risk of harm.  We will always discuss these concerns with parents or carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.  In these cases, school is obliged to follow the Child Protection procedures detailed in the Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy below and will inform Sefton’s Children's Services of the concern.

If you are concerned about a child’s safety or well-being, or would like to know more about Safeguarding and Child Protection Procedures at St Luke’s, please do not hesitate to contact any of the team above via the school office, or email: [email protected]  This email address is checked twice daily, including school holidays and weekends.

If you would like further information about keeping your child safe, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) has lots of advice and guidance.

to learn, to succeed, to value one another

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. A value is a belief or principle that guides our thinking and behaviour. Our values underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils to be happy and confident and to to take an active role in their community and the wider world.

Each year group has adopted one of our Christian values: Kindness, Forgiveness, Courage, Thankfulness, Hope, Faithfulness and Respect. Our over-arching Christian Value is Love. Throughout the year children are helped to explore, have opportunities to practise and then given time to reflect on what each of our Christian values means to them.
