Learning for Life

Spring has arrived. As we celebrate Easter and the prospect of new life and as we reflect as we come towards the end of Ramadan, we have some new members of the school community. Mrs Lee took the caterpillars that Hedgehogs and Rabbits have been nurturing home for the holidays. It wasn't very exciting ..... until today. The caterpillars had entered their cocoons and today, the first butterfly emerged into the netting. It is beautiful. Mrs Lee is feeding it sugar water and pieces of fruit at the moment until it is strong enough to be let loose into the world.  I wonder how many more butterflies we will get? 

And today . . . We have 3 beautiful butterflies! Look at the one enjoying his orange juice! 

Mrs Lee took Alex back to University today .... and when she got back there were 12 butterflies! Not an award winning film but you can see all the butterflies! They will be ready to be released early next week. 


This year, we all used our creative skills to turn a wooden spoon into a book character. Look at all our amazing ideas! Have a look at three prize winners in each class on our class pages!

Our fantastic adults have been working very hard to display our amazing artwork. We have been developing lots of knowledge and skills about different artists and learning about the process of art - not just creating a final piece. Some of our work will be on display at our Multi Academy Trust Headquarters soon!

What a great start to the year we've had! Here are the pictures of our displays for this term. We've been learning all about different aspects of creation in RE and how we should be looking after the wonderful world we have. Have a look at some of our work

Our Value this half term is LOVE. We are thinking about what it means to love somebody and the different types of love that we might have for different people or different things.   


Welcome to the family of St Augustine’s Church of England School!

I am delighted and privileged to introduce myself as the Headteacher of St Augustine’s CE School.  

Our school is situated in West Central Halifax and serves a local community where children from different faiths, backgrounds and abilities learn, socialise and play together. We          are a church school and embed Christian values into all aspects of school life. Our Christian Values - chosen by the pupils, staff, parents and governors are Friendship, Honesty, Respect and Care. 

Our curriculum has been scoped and written to ensure that it provides high quality learning opportunities, based on the interests and experiences of our children. Through well-planned and sequenced learning, each child will develop their knowledge, skills and individual qualities within a safe and stimulating learning environment.

As pupils, staff and governors, we regularly revisit our vision for the school. Everything that we do is rooted in our vision and the decisions that we make put our children and their needs at the centre. 

Our School is a beacon of hope, where children and adults are respected and flourish individually; where achievement, aspiration are developed and nurtured and confidence built. A caring community where experiences help us learn for life and find our place within the world. 

I hope you enjoy finding out all about the caring school family that I am privileged to lead on our website. You are WELCOME and ENCOURAGED to come and look round school at any time. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to come or if you require any further information about us.

I look forward to meeting you.
