“To be guided by God’s wisdom, to embrace challenge and strive to achieve our best, enjoying all that we do together.”
We are guided towards excellence by the Christian inspiration of Jesus Christ the Servant King; and Saint Augustine of Canterbury; and the values of resilience, leadership, and patience/stillness.
The sense of ‘enjoying all that we do together’ was praised in the recent OFSTED inspection:
“Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. Pupils are tolerant and respectful of different cultures and beliefs.” OFSTED July 2017
Our Ethos Statement- Instrument of Government
Recognising our historic foundation, St Augustine’s C of E (VA) Junior School will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with St. Augustine’s Church and the Ely Diocese. We aim to serve our local community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experience we offer. We work, in partnership, with children, parents, the church community and the wider community, to enable spiritual, moral, social and academic growth. Working together in this way we raise aspirations, standards of behaviour and attainment.
