‘Let all that you do be done in love.’ 1 Corinthians 16:14
At St. Augustine’s our mission is for all pupils, regardless of their faith background, to learn to act in service of Christ, by showing love for themselves and others in everything they do. In turn, our pupils feel loved and respected for their individual and unique selves, made in God’s image.
‘We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.’ Aristotle
We encourage our pupils to strive for excellence and this begins with the choices they make each day. Our school virtues underpin everything we say and do; through the daily practise of Love and Respect, Friendship and Kindness, Honesty and Forgiveness, Hope and Confidence, Love of Neighbour and Self Control, Love of Learning and Determination, our pupils nurture and develop aspects of their character that ensure they will become positive, successful citizens of the future.
By providing an exciting, immersive curriculum rooted in progressive knowledge and skills, we aim to provide our pupils with experiences that foster inquisitive and resilient learners who challenge themselves to excel.
Through their excellent learning and social behaviours, our pupils demonstrate their commitment to being role-models in all they do. By recognising, rewarding and restoring virtue-based behaviours, we aim for all pupils to work together to create an excellent learning environment where everyone is enabled and championed to succeed.
Through a strong commitment to ‘Faith in Action’, we provide our pupils with regular opportunities to serve their local community and the wider world. By fostering an understanding of sustainability, charity, and kindness to all, we nurture in our pupils a yearning to take their loving mission out into the World and truly make a difference.
