Welcome to St Augustine’s CE
St Augustine’s is a very special place. We are a good school where everyone works hard to encourage children to enjoy learning, achieve their best, behave well, support each other and grow in confidence. We aim to help children to
grow into confident, talented and articulate young people. We are an exciting and vibrant school where children enjoy learning and make excellent progress.
In our school, we seek to meet the needs of each individual child. We celebrate diversity and teach children to recognise and respect people’s individual differences as well as similarities. St Augustine’s recognises the significant role
of parents in helping their children progress and greatly values the contributions parents make to the life of our school.
Teaching and Learning
At St Augustine’s we develop the whole child. We recognise and encourage talents and skills of all kinds and develop independent learners. Raising attainment and achievement are central to the ethos of our school.
We provide a creative, rich and stimulating learning experience for all the children in our school. We use a range of teaching strategies, approaches, styles and activities to ensure all children learn to the best of their ability.
Learning is carefully differentiated and pitched to suit learners’ needs.
Learning is enhanced through bright, stimulating resources, display and modern technology.
We have themed weeks to enrich the curriculum as well as a wide range of extra-curricular activities and breakfast and after school clubs to enrich and extend learning to ensure every child experiences success.
Our School Ethos
St. Augustine's is a Christian School based on Gospel values.
Linking with our Church we serve the local community.
Our ethos is: "Live, Love and Learn In The Light Of Christ."
St Augustine's A Brief History
St Augustine's Primary School as it stands now started life as a secondary school in 1937 and the cost was met
by the enthusiastic and willing support of the parishioners of St Augustine's Church.
In 1957 it was converted into a primary school and became St. Augustine's CofE Primary School.
The church and school are still closely linked and there are several special occasions during the school year when the school holds special assemblies and festivals in church to which all the parents are invited.
