Our Learning Environment

St. Augustine’s has extensive grounds with large, well-equipped playgrounds and sports field. Children in all year groups take advantage of our fantastic outdoor facilities including a nature area, perfect for facilitating Forest School learning, trim trails and outdoor storytelling garden. All outdoor learning opportunities, provide for the differing learning styles and needs of all pupils.

In addition, our youngest children in early years have a safe and stimulating environment; a well-resourced classroom free-flows into a dedicated early years garden with water play, allotments, bikes and trikes, mud kitchen and our very own conker tree! You will see the children playing and exploring, being active and creating and thinking critically whilst developing a rich vocabulary.

Our classrooms are modern, bright and welcoming spaces where we encourage children to be autonomous with their use of well-stocked resources, ensuring they are readily accessible to all. Every classroom has up-to-date Smart boards and access to both laptops and ipads, along with a separate learning space for computing lessons.

Our extensive library is well-stocked with the latest accelerated read books, also providing some cosy spaces where children can foster their love of reading.

Our dining hall has a kitchen space for cookery sessions, and our large multi-purpose hall has gymnastics bars, a stage and multi-media systems to enhance performances and productions.
