Catholic Life

Catholic Social Teaching underpins the essence of our daily school life and the curriculum. It is based on the belief that God has a plan for creation, a plan to build his kingdom of peace, love and justice.

Pope Francis emphasises that it is our duty to work together to bring about a more just and peaceful world: to put love into action. At St. Augustine’s, we believe this is a vocation for the common good, a call to treat everyone as brothers and sisters and is something that we live our through our mission statement.

The British Values of Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance are matched with our school virtues, which underpin our behaviour system. By practising these daily, we teach our children that they are not something just to learn but something ‘live out’ and we reflect at the end of each day on way in which we have done this. We also link these together with the NHS 5 ways to wellbeing, ensuring that our children understand the importance of protecting their mental health and that by living in a way that respects both ourselves and each other, we can truly flourish.
