The distinct aims and Christian values of St Augustine’s C of E Primary School underpin every aspect of school life. We instill the idea of courageous advocacy within our pupils enabling them to develop a greater awareness of the challenges others face in life and the role they play as individual advocates to support causes and make a difference.
HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE IN CRISIS
St Augustine’s have supported Salford Foodbank over the years, mainly through Harvest Festivals. Pupils across school donated tins, cereals and biscuits. Salford foodbank help people in crisis and need of food in the local area.
Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three-day supply of food. We have a shopping list of standard items that go in our food parcels.
We know things have been difficult over the last few years, but together, we really can make a huge
difference in a time when it’s needed most.
Findings from research showed that the coronavirus pandemic has left a
huge impact on the mental health and wellbeing of UK children, and for those
who were already facing disadvantages, life has become incredibly difficult.
It has never been more important that we keep funding life changing projects and
charities, providing crucial services for vulnerable children and young people through
Together, with your help, we can support thousands of children and young people and
help change lives.
THE FOUNTAINS CARE HOME
Each year our fabulous choir visit the residents of Fountains Care Home during December and entertain the residents with their joyful singing.
During Covid this did stop, but from 2022 we have been invited back to entertain the residents. Our choir has grown in numbers and are looking forward to visiting them again.
Every year St. Augustine’s support the Royal British Legion by selling poppies and a variety of stationery. The pupils love the different stationery we receive every year.
Every poppy sold shows you care about the lives of our Armed Forces Community. For further facts and information about the poppies please click the link below:
The poppies and stationery are on sale in school during October and up to 11th Novembeer each year.
Red Nose Day is an annual tradition that was first launched back in 1988. Taking place every March, this unique fundraising campaign uses comedy as a means to fundraise money for great causes. Comic Relief supports incredible projects and organisations that are making a difference for people across the UK and around the world. Anyone and everyone can get involved. Past years have seen bake sales, 24-hour dance-a-thons or simply wearing our iconic Red Nose. Pupils can speak to their School Council Representatives if they have some ideas for the next Red Nose Day in 2024.
Friday 18th March 2022 we joined in with Red Nose Day and we raised £134.72 – thank you for your continued support and generosity .
