You can donate money to the school through the following ways:
  • Sponsoring an existing fundraising event
  • A gift of money, where tax payers can increase their donation by 20% by completing the Giving Form
  • Donating at one of our fundraising and/or school events
  • Setting up a monthly/ annual donation
  • Giving to the school in your will

Donate your time through volunteering

We often have opportunities for people to volunteer at St Luke's School. There may sometimes be a wait to become a volunteer as we are both popular venue for volunteers, though as you will understand, volunteering will take up some adult time as well. Bearing in mind the focus of the school and needs of our children, the pupils come first.

Please be aware that the pupils' safety and protection is always a priority for the school and every volunteer is checked with a police DBS, references are taken up and lists regarding the barring of adults working with children are always accessed for clearance.

We have people volunteering at St Luke's for a variety of reasons:
  • To give something back
  • To see if special needs education is right for them as a career
  • To work on personal development projects, such as writers, artists
  • To get satisfaction from the experience of helping children with disabilities
  • To support children to access the mainstream world through work experiences/ travel training
  • To support the school with their own knowledge and experience - sharing great practices

We host placements for university undergraduates and postgraduates:
  • Student Teachers
  • Trainee Education Psychologists
  • Trainee Occupational Therapists
  • Trainee Music, Art, Movement Therapists and Psychotherapists

All volunteers have an enhanced DBS check as we rigorously support ways to keep our children safe.
