Welcome to St Augustine's Catholic Primary School
At St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School we provide a safe and stimulating learning community where children are able to learn, play and grow academically, spiritually and morally.
We are a Catholic School where the ethos is underpinned by the gospel values of developing the whole child through love, care and respect for others.
St Augustine’s has a rich and diverse community that aims to value each child for their unique gifts, skills and talents and where we appreciate that every child is different, special in the eyes of God no matter what their ethnicity, ability or background. We welcome families from all faiths and backgrounds who are happy to support our ethos.
The governors and Staff strive to provide a learning environment that fosters positive attitudes to learning where the children feel valued, confident and secure.
We also recognise that parents and carers are children’s primary educators and wish to work in partnership to ensure that children are supported through this important time of their education.
Our aim for high expectations and standards are combined with a sense of creativity, respect and enjoyment, firmly underpinned by our steadfast belief that the Gospel Values of Jesus Christ are at the centre of everything we do.
Here at St Augustine’s we ensure your child will be encouraged, motivated and guided to ensure that they develop their natural gifts and talents whilst becoming confident, independent learners who know how to make informed decisions about the choices they make in life.
I am proud to be the Headteacher of a thriving, learning community with supportive staff, governors, parents and parish clergy.
