A big welcome to St Austin’s Catholic Primary School.



On this page, you will find lots of information about our learning and routines. If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact the school office via email:




Our Class Saint

Our Class Saint in Reception is Saint Augustine. We will be learning all about who he is, what he did and why our school is named after him. We have been learning that St Augustine is often shortened to St Austin.

We are part of God’s family at St Austin’s.


In our RE lessons we are learning about God’s Creation of the world we live in. We will talk about what we can do to take care of our world.

We are learning we are all special to God and we should look after each other too.






  • milk (up to the age of 5) and fruit is provided daily for your children
  • all equipment needed will be provided by school, no need for pencil cases in Reception class
  • PE (Term 1 -Thursday) – please send your child to school in their PE kit on this day
  • Homework – daily reading and practise of phonics (further information will be given)


Please check back weekly to see what Reception have been up to as they love to share their learning journey!


Phonics is an important part of your child's learning in the first few years of school. At St Austin's we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme. To support your understanding of this we have put together lots of information and videos on our English page to help guide you step by step through your child's phonics journey.  Please follow the link below:
