St. Luke Academies Trust
St Luke Academies Trust, formed in 2015, is part of the diocese of Northampton and made up of Catholic Primary Schools in North Northamptonshire, working together to provide the best opportunities for every child and to maintain high standards of Catholic Education.
Schools currently in the Trust are: Our Lady of Walsingham and St Brendan’s in Corby, and St Edward’s and St Thomas More Catholic Primary in Kettering. Our aim is to incorporate the other two Catholic primary schools in North Northamptonshire in the next five years.
The vision of St Luke Academies Trust is to develop each of its schools as welcoming and inclusive communities, where faith is nurtured, excellence in learning is achieved and pupils are inspired to serve others, following the example of Jesus. The work of all members of St Luke Academies Trust is based on trust, collaboration and respect, with all members and their contributions equally valued.
AIMS FOR LEARNERS AND STAFF
In St Luke Academies Trust schools, children come first and all activities reflect this. Our schools aim to be inclusive and promote the highest expectations for every individual. We aim for every lesson to be good or better and for every child to be enabled to make progress and fulfil their potential. We expect every child to be nurtured emotionally and spiritually and encouraged to learn independently. We celebrate diversity.
Staff in our schools work in an environment strengthened and nurtured by our faith. We offer mutual support linked to priorities and are committed to collaborative work in a system of self-improving schools. We have developed a community of peer-led professional learning, reflection, challenge and support.
