St Augustine's Academy

Where we all shine


Our staff are our school's most important and valuable resource.  We aim to attract our staff from a wide range of backgrounds and each team member plays a vital role in the life of our school.

We are passionate about creating an environment where both staff and pupils are able to grow and learn together; we aim for each member of our school community to achieve their potential.  A programme of both internal and external professional development is in place for staff; this enables them to enhance and develop their skills and ensures that our school delivers the best possible education for our pupils.  In the last 2 years, staff received training in Safeguarding, Read, Write Inc. Phonics, Epi-pen usage, Asthma, and training in a programme called SELF which is aimed at building children's independence and resilience.   Teachers also take part in Lesson Study, which is a powerful form of teacher-led, classroom-based research and positively impacts upon pupil progress.
