“We plant the seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise. We lay foundations that will need further development.”
St. Oscar Romero
As a Catholic school, Religious Education is at the very heart of our Curriculum at St. Augustine’s, as we live the Gospel values in our daily life.
Prayer plays an important part in the school day. Children are encouraged to participate fully in our liturgies and Masses and to lead others in prayer. We are very fortunate to have our parish church on our doorstep; our Parish Priest, Fr Sam, visits the school and the children visit the church regularly. Children have the opportunity to attend individual class Mass and whole school Mass throughout the year. We aim to work closely with parents to nurture the relationship between our children and their Catholic faith. Parents are invited to attend Masses, concerts and Liturgies and are kept informed of all events taking place through our weekly Newsletter. Parents are welcomed into school to join us in saying the Rosary during the months of May and October.
As a consequence of the Covid19 pandemic, many events have not taken place in the usual way, however, every endeavour has been made to have events recorded and posted on the School Website.
As a school, we teach RE using a scheme called “The Way, the Truth and the Life”. This is taught from EYFS to Year 6. Our Monday assemblies link closely with the Sunday Gospel readings and our children are encouraged to reflect on and learn from their faith.
