We love getting to know our new children and their families. We pride ourselves on our close relationships between home and school. This begins with our transition visits and welcome meetings, which really make our pupils and parents feel part of our community and confident about what school life at St Augustine’s will bring.
Our Reception pupils enjoy access to our dedicated outdoor learning areas, as well as a stimulating and inviting classroom. These areas are full of resources to support class, group and independent learning. Some of our children’s favourite activities include getting messy in our mud kitchen, developing their imagination in our role play areas and using resources found in the natural environment to support their mathematical and scientific thinking.
