St. Augustine's Catholic Primary School was last inspected in April 2017 when we were judged to be good in all aspects.

Some comments from the Inspection Report include:

  • St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School remains a vibrant, purposeful place in which to learn, underpinned by its strong, distinctive Catholic ethos.
  • The vision and passion for improving the learning experiences of every individual pupil is very evident.
  • The early years lead the way in ensuring that children get off to a strong start. The language –rich environment and excellent support from adults ensures that children’s speaking and listening skills develop quickly.
  • The school is rightly proud of its Catholic ethos. Its mission statement, 'As one family working together to be the best that we can be we live, love and learn with Jesus', underpins all that you do.
  • Staff and pupils are happy and proud of their school.
  • Pupils show positive attitudes to their learning. They are extremely polite and well-mannered and their conduct around the school is excellent.
  • Parents particularly value the commitment shown by the staff and the school’s caring ethos. Many also said they appreciate the support they are given to support their children’s learning.
  • Parents agree that their children are safe in school and children say they feel safe.

Religious Education Inspection

Our school was last inspected in June 2013 when we were judged to be a 'Good Catholic school with some outstanding features'.

Some comments from the Inspection Report include:

  • The involvement of the pupils with the Catholic life and collective worship of the school and the contribution of the curriculum to spiritual, moral and vocational development are judged to be outstanding.
  • The strong Catholic ethos of the school is evident in the building itself and in the relationships, attitudes and behaviour of pupils.
  • Children enjoy learning in RE and have the opportunity to develop as independent learners.
  • Children make good progress in their religious education and achieve at or above expectations.
  • Children feel happy and secure in their school. They are encouraged to work together as a family 'to be the best that they can be'.
  • Children are friendly, helpful and very well-behaved, a credit to their school and families.
  • Pupils respond positively to the school focus on vocation and service through involvement with charitable work, by their positive behaviour and respect for one another and by serving others for example as peer mediators and play leaders.
  • Teaching of RE is good and sometimes outstanding. Lessons are differentiated and well planned and provide clear progression in knowledge and understanding.
  • The headteacher, staff and governors are committed to the success of the school and its Catholic life.
