Headteachers Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and find out more about our school. We hope you find all the information you need but if you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact school.

St. Augustine of Canterbury RC Primary School is much more than a school; it is a family and a community. Our school provides a caring, happy and friendly education setting in which children are encouraged to reach their full potential and thrive within a nurturing Catholic environment. We strive to foster a climate of learning encouraging children to become independent, resilient and enthusiastic individuals.

We have a dedicated and committed team of conscientious staff and Governors, friendly and hard working children, and supportive parents who want the very best education for their children. We know our children well and this enables us to respond to their ever changing needs. Our greatest ambassadors are our children and anybody who visits our school cannot fail to be impressed by our pupils; their enthusiasm, manners, commitment and pride in our school is evident to anyone who is welcomed through our doors.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school,

Mrs. S Colbeck

“Catholic educational institutions offer everyone an education aimed at the integral development of the person that responds to the right of all people to have access to knowledge and understanding. But they are equally called to offer to all the Christian message —respecting fully the freedom of all and the proper methods of each specific scholastic environment— namely that Jesus Christ is the meaning of life, of the cosmos and of history.”

(Pope Francis Address to Congregation for Catholic Education, Feb 2014)
