Pupil and Family Support
Welcome to the Pupil and Family Support page.
Mrs Webb and Mrs Pound are St Augustine’s Pupil and Family Support leads and Senior Mental Health Leads.
At St Augustine’s Primary School we recognise that education is about more than academics. We are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, their families and staff.
We know everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable at times and anyone may need additional emotional support. Our Pupil and Family Support have had extensive training in order to best support the children in our care. External support is sometimes required and families will be supported by school.
Penny Pound is our school therapy dog. She is in school everyday and spends time with children in and out of class.

Valley Community Centre
To sign up to be a member at one of our Community Groceries, all you need to do is visit your nearest store (see our ‘Locations’ page to find yours) and let one of our team know it’s your first time. We will then get you a form to fill in and explain all about how the groceries work.
All you need to do bring £5 for your annual membership fee*, and a couple of shopping bags to put your £4 shop in and then start shopping. It’s as simple as that!
Once you’re a member you can come along to the Community Grocery up to three times a week and fill up your basket.
‘Too Good To Go’ Ap.
Too Good To Go lets you buy unsold food from places that sell food around you—restaurants, supermarkets, bakeries, etc. Anything that got left unsold at the end of the service time for that place and would otherwise go to waste, but this app lets you buy it. Too Good To Go provides an alternative to throwing away perfectly good food.
I downloaded the Ap to see how it works. It brought up local places, you can book slots to collect bags of food for a small price.
