Values and Ethos
The Aims of our School
St. Augustine’s strives to provide a happy, secure and caring environment which fosters love and acknowledgement of Christ’s presence as central to personal, social and academic experiences and achievements. Through daily collective worship and liturgy, supported by a structured RE scheme of work, we aim to facilitate and develop children’s understanding and commitment to the Catholic faith, whilst also encouraging the practice of the faith on a regular basis.
Our ministry is well-supported by links with the parish community of St. Augustine’s Catholic Church. Catechists from the parish are involved in sacramental preparation, Masses and liturgical celebrations in school.
It is through the successful integration of our Catholic ethos and high quality learning and teaching experiences that we endeavor to enable every child to achieve their own personal targets in all areas of the curriculum. Fundamental to this philosophy is our desire to help children to value themselves as individuals, whilst recognising their responsibilities within the school and parish community and wider world.
