131 St Austins RC Primary

Welcome to St Austin’s Catholic Primary School

I’m delighted and incredibly proud, as the Headteacher, to welcome you to St. Austin’s School. Our school ensures that the child and their family are at the very centre of everything we do.

St Austin’s Catholic Primary School is a voluntary academy and a partner school with the Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust. We are a school of faith, achievement, care, quality and opportunity for all.

Our school puts Christ at the centre of everything it does by integrating Gospel values and the teachings of the Catholic Church into every aspect of learning and teaching and the totality of school life. Our children’s journey towards adulthood will also be a journey of faith.

We are a school family and make it our duty to go above and beyond to support our children and families. We firmly believe that mental health and wellbeing weaves through all aspects of school. We value every child’s uniqueness, as such, we discuss every child, as an individual through progress meetings and meetings with parents to talk about their wellbeing, involvement, attendance, progress, friendships, any concerns and planned actions to support.

We have made significant improvements over the last two to three years, including reading, our wider curriculum offer, SEND provision and the quality of teaching and learning. Ofsted continue to recognise that we are a GOOD school. We are lucky to have a highly-skilled, committed team who strive for the upmost success for our children and who have a caring and supportive ethos at their core. St. Austin’s Catholic Primary School is undoubtedly a unique school.

We are passionate about reading and are determined that every child will be a confident reader, to open up a world of exciting learning and opportunities for them. We have been a Little Wandle (Phonics Scheme) school since September 2022, our children our taught in small groups according to their stage of learning and we have a dedicated reading leader. Reading is embedded across the curriculum and we actively promote reading for pleasure in a homely environment. We work closely with the local Jerry Clay English Hub who recently commented “It is lovely to work with a school that clearly prioritises reading. The impact you are having on reading is so clear.”

I’m passionate about safeguarding the intrinsic value of childhood, ensuring that all our children can enjoy exciting and challenging learning experiences, nurtured well-being and friendships. I truly believe that every child has the ability to succeed whatever their starting point and I want each child to flourish to achieve their full and unique potential and are inspired to become confident, resilient learners.

In our science class, our students embarked on a fascinating journey to explore the human circulatory system. With creativity and enthusiasm, they brought their lessons to life by mapping out the circulatory system onto T-shirts. It was a heartwarming sight to see our students putting their hearts into their work… literally! Each T-shirt became a personal canvas, illustrating not just the pathways of blood through the body, but also the passion and dedication our students have for learning.We believe in providing a hands-on learning experience that ignites curiosity and fosters a deeper understanding of the world around us.
