The well-being of every student is at the heart of all our work
St Augustine’s Catholic ethos is that of a community where each member plays a part in creating an atmosphere enlivened by the gospel spirit of freedom and love. This is achieved through the daily exercise of courtesy, respect, care for others and self-discipline. In this way students are able to adopt a value system based upon the Gospel.
We work hard to ensure our students feel supported, cared for and valued. The welfare of the Sixth Form students is overseen by the form tutor who, in collaboration with the student via PDPs and tutor sessions, monitors their general academic progress, health and well-being. Additionally, we offer a confidential counselling service for students in need of extended support.
Each morning students register with their tutors who deliver a pastoral programme and students also have one lesson of PSHE per fortnight, in which they study a variety of topics: Personal and Learning Skills, Careers and University Preparation, Citizenship, Relationships and Personal Health issues. The course is tailored to the needs of students in the Sixth Form and is designed to provide mature insights into these important areas.
