About Us

We are a sponsored academy, and opened as St. Augustine’s CE Primary School, part of the Vantage Academy Trust on 4th September 2017.

Please take some time to look around our website. We hope this gives you an insight into the ethos and education at St. Augustine’s CE Primary.

Our Values

At the heart of our vision is a shared curriculum and approach to teaching and learning across our schools. The International Primary Curriculum and its eight learning goals are deeply embedded across all of our academies – providing both rigour and internationally recognised standards for all pupils.

The goals, which are shared by everyone in our schools, are:

  • Collaborator
  • Adaptable
  • Empathetic
  • Resilient
  • Communicator
  • Thinker
  • Respectful
  • Ethical

Our Christian Values

Our six Christian values, chosen by pupils, staff and governors are:

Thankfulness, Friendship, Joy, Community, Forgiveness and Courage.

Our Christian Vision and Christian Values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

We believe there is a very simple, yet highly effective formula to providing our pupils with an excellent education – children need a happy school atmosphere, limited class sizes and to have high expectations of themselves.

We have a wonderful team of teachers and assistants at St. Augustine’s who are dedicated to helping pupils achieve their full potential. We use traditional teaching methods with a strong emphasis on English and Maths.  There is a lovely community spirit at our School. Mutual respect, good behaviour and courtesy are at the heart of our school ethos. Every pupil is treated as an individual to ensure we nurture their abilities and meet their needs.  Pupils work to a curriculum that is tailored to their specific needs so they achieve their full potential.

As a trust, we are deeply committed to improving outcomes for all children and supporting schools with a history of underperformance to become both inspirational and safe places in which to learn. We do this by investing in and developing exceptional teachers, leaders and support staff; building strong relationships with parents and our local communities; providing inspirational learning environments; and demonstrating high expectations for every school and every child across the trust.
