Welcome to a new year at St Luke's C E Primary School. We are very excited to welcome our new Reception Children and their families to St Luke's. If you are the parent of a child starting school in September 2022 please telephone the Infant office to book a tour of the school. If you have any queries please call Teresa at the Infant Site/Alison or Wendy at the Junior Site.

Learning Support

Much of the SEND provision will always naturally occur within the classroom context.


  • Lessons are pitched appropriately so that all children can learn and progress.
  • Teachers take account of the needs of the individual child and plan different tasks and materials appropriately.
  • Tracking and assessment enables each class teacher to analyse the progress of the child

How does the school know if my child needs extra help?

We have a number of methods to help us identify if a child needs extra help. These include:


  • Speaking to current class teachers and TAs
  • Feedback from parents
  • Information from your child’s pre-school or previous school
  • Class teacher visits to feeder pre-school to observe your child and speak to their key workers
  • Speaking to previous class teachers
  • Information from other services who have worked with your child, for example a speech and language therapists
  • Referrals from outside agencies such as your local doctors
  • Whole school data analysis exercises that occur on a termly basis


This information will be used to ensure that we meet any additional needs your child may have.  We will monitor the progress and development of your child and seek your views and wishes.  If we have concerns we may ask other professionals to give advice and support also.

It may be considered appropriate, at given times, that your child participates in small group or 1:1 interventions to help them within a certain area of their learning. The school has a range of small group out of class interventions, including:


  • English support inc spelling and reading- 1:1 interventions or small groups
  • Speech and Language therapy
  • Additional phonics support
  • ELSA - Emotional and Social Support
  • Nurture Club
  • Sensory Circuits 
  • Change4Life club


We also receive support from outside agencies, SALT (speech & language therapy), Behaviour Support and Educational Psychology.


If you have any questions about learning support, please contact your child's class teacher. We are always happy to help.
