Welcome to Saint Augustine Webster Catholic Voluntary Academy. It is the largest Primary in the Catholic Diocese of Nottingham, having approximately 476 children on roll aged between 3 and 11.
We work in partnership with parents to provide a caring, secure and challenging environment, rooted in Gospel values, where everyone is valued and respected.
We have a reputation for high standards and are committed to ensuring that every child does the best he or she possibly can.
We provide an experience that nurtures enquiring, confident and disciplined minds, and develops the whole child so that each one is prepared for future life.
The school will aim to:
Develop an awareness of God’s love and presence in individual’s lives and to elicit a response to that
Help pupils to develop a reasoned set of attitudes, values and beliefs allowing the individual to make sound and moral judgements in the light of personal commitment to the Lord, Jesus Christ
Make prayer, worship and liturgy valued experiences
Develop real links with home and parish
Create caring relationships with all those children and adults who are involved in the school.
At Saint Augustine Webster we are
Happy in His Loving Care.
At Saint Augustine Webster children have opportunities to apply their learning, acquire problem solving skills, develop resilience and think critically.
In the Early Years we encourage children to act independently from the outset. The organisation of the Foundation Unit allows children to choose resources and make decisions within a stimulating and nurturing environment.
As children progress through the school, they can access The Den, The Zone, The Labyrinth, The Studio and The Retreat. A variety of resources are available to support learning, including ICT. Dedicated time is given to independent learning. Children are also expected to use their independent skills even further when engaged in the Creative Curriculum.
Throughout the school, adults prompt, challenge and question children appropriately in order to embed and deepen learning.
Saint Augustine Webster is a Catholic school where children benefit from the values of respect and tolerance taught in a culturally diverse environment. Children are reminded of the importance of this in our relationships with others. Our school’s ethos, rooted in Gospel values, gives focus to children facing an uncertain world.
RE is a core subject in the curriculum and is taught using the ‘Come and See’ programme to teach child friendly themes at an age appropriate level. Children are encouraged to play an active part in Collective Worship and assemblies. It is important to us that parents and our Parish community of Holy Souls celebrate with us too. Charitable work helps children to understand the importance of helping others and see their place in the wider community.
At Saint Augustine Webster, outdoor learning is used to enhance and embed the skills and knowledge that children acquire. The benefits of outdoor learning are many and varied. The outdoors provides real experiences as a context for learning and supports a range of learning styles. The physical nature of outdoor learning has obvious benefits but can be particularly engaging for boys. Furthermore, we find that for all children, communication and language skills can be significantly developed.
We value the outdoor spaces we have at Saint Augustine Webster and children have access to specific resources for supporting and extending learning across the curriculum. In addition to this children have the opportunity to visit other natural environments to extend their experiences further.
At Saint Augustine Webster we are incredibly fortunate to have ‘The Station’ as a recent addition to our learning environment. The main part of this building is the ‘iStation’, designed as a laboratory to enhance the teaching and learning of science. It is well stocked with a range of resources and equipment to make science an exciting and stimulating part of the school curriculum.
All children may access the iStation but for older children the iStation can be used to aid transition. It may serve to create a bridge to the next stage of learning in Key Stage 3. Children are able to experience a taste of learning to come which helps to make the next big step more manageable.
