Welcome toSt Augustine's Catholic Primary School

Pupil Leaders

At St. Augustine’s School we promote good citizenship in a variety of ways. The children have opportunities to hold various positions of responsibility in school aiming to serve each other and improve life in and around school.

The most important people in our school are our children and their voice is of paramount importance.

RE Council

At the beginning of each academic year two children from each Key Stage 2 Class are voted by their peers to be part of the RE Council.

These specially selected pupils lay a very important role in the Catholic Life of St. Augustine’s. They follow a vocation to serve others and lead them in Faith.

Their job is to:

  • Strengthen the Faith of our school;
  • Be an example of Christ's teaching to others;
  • Follow the Gospel Virtues and Values;
  • Meet regularly to develop the Catholic Life in our school;
  • Disseminate messages to their class mates;
  • Carry out monitoring to ensure the development of our school environment
  • Be living examples of our Mission Statement.

ECO Council

 

St. Augustine's eco council is made up of members from each class, ranging from Years 1-6. Each member is elected and voted for by their peers. The Eco Council meets up every fortnight to voice their ideas and discuss the next projects.  

 

Year 6 also play a significant role as Eco-Rangers. Six members carry out energy checks on each classroom and grade each class based on the devices and equipment they have remembered to switch-off.

 

Towards the end of the year the current Year 6's pass their role and their experiences on to the Year 5's as they prepare to take on more responsibilites within the school.

Mini Vinnies

The children from Year 4 to Year 6 have the opportunity to join the Mini Vinnies group, which meets once a fortnight.

The children in the group pledge to make a difference in the world by:

  • Caring for, respecting and loving myself.
  • Strengthening my friendship with Jesus by talking to him each day and talking to others about him.
  • Caring for others in my school and community by being a friend to those who are alone, in need or in trouble.
  • Making my family happy by my help, respect and showing kindness and consideration.
  • Caring for and enjoying God’s world.
  • Treating others the way I would like them to treat me.

Family Leaders

At St. Augustine’s we have 4 Family Groups – Canterbury, Harvington, Walsingham and Westminster. These places have been carefully chosen as they are places of pilgrimage for Catholics and the children learn about the important place for their family group. When the children enter Year 1 they become part of one of the Families and remain with that family throughout their time at St. Augustine’s Two children (1 boy and 1 girl) from Year 6 become Family Leaders for each of the four family groups. The Family Leaders are voted for by their peers and also the Senior Leadership Team. The Family Leaders need to be pupils who are good role models within school as they carry out different responsibilities. Examples of these responsibilities include welcoming visitors to school, collecting and counting up family points and supporting in assemblies.

Alter Servers

We are very proud to have some altar servers participating at St Augustine’s Church each week and supporting our School Masses. Anyone from Year 4, who has made their First Holy Communion, can become an altar server, once they carry out the required training.

The primary role of the altar server is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass. This is done through specific actions and by setting an example to the congregation by active participation in the liturgy (hymns, responses, etc.) and sitting or standing at the appropriate times.
