Welcome to St Austin's Catholic Primary School
a Voluntary Academy
St Austin’s Catholic Primary School is a voluntary academy and a partner school with the Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust. We are a school of faith, achievement, care, quality and opportunity for all.
Our school puts Christ at the centre of everything it does by integrating Gospel values and the teachings of the Catholic Church into every aspect of learning and teaching and the totality of school life.
Our children’s journey towards adulthood will also be a journey of faith.

Beware of scam emails - 24.03.2020
We have been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following:
'As schools will be closing, if you're entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we'll make sure you're supported'.
We can confirm that this is a scam email and it is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do respond and delete it immediately.
Exciting Enrichment activities for our pupils to engage with and enjoy ..........
We have been very fortunate to secure funding through The National Lottery Community Fund to enable us to buy in the outside services of Forest Schools and Elite Coaching to deliver enrichment opportunities for our pupils to participate in and learn new and exciting skills outside of the usual classroom environment. As part of this exciting new initiative, our pupils can experience outdoor learning with excellent provision from Forest Schools whether it be learning how to build a den or be artistic and creative with nature resources we have around school! Opportunities for acquiring new skills also extend to the development and enhancement of functional fitness skills delivered in a fun and exciting manner by the experienced coaches from Elite Coaching Team! The outdoor learning experiences are proving to be a huge success amongst our pupils as they embrace these fun, exciting new opportunities to enhance their learning, development and growing experiences along their journey at St Austin's! Please take a look at our gallery below .......
