Celebrating Achievement

Success Breeds Success

At St. Augustine’s we want all our students to achieve success in different ways. Each student is talented in an individual way.

We aim to create a school where the talents of each student can flourish. That way all our students really do achieve success.

We encourage our students to be successful by:

  • having clear expectations
  • highlighting achievement in all its forms
  • negotiating targets for our students to work towards
  • celebrating achievement at our annual Awards Ceremonies

Accentuating the Positive

Meeting our expectations brings its own rewards. Students who work with the school find:

  • they feel good about themselves
  • they make a positive contribution to the school
  • they set a good example for one another
  • they achieve good results

Teachers highlight success by issuing a Positive Referral or a Praise Postcard when a student:-

  • makes better progress than expected
  • does an outstanding piece of work
  • shows real improvement in attitude
  • applies him/herself consistently
  • gives support to other students
  • has an excellent attendance record

Our “STAR” initiative is aimed at encouraging and rewarding a student who demonstrates respect for others in a variety of ways e.g. being polite.

This is run by the SRC, the Student Representative Council, who are the main conduit for the Pupil Voice. They are instrumental in improving the school ethos.

At the core of our work, we aim to develop the four capacities in pupils. We wish to make them:
Successful Learners
Confident Individuals
Effective Contributors
Responsible Citizens

This is part of the school’s ethos and has been for some time! We seek to create well-rounded individuals who are ready to make a positive contribution to society.
