Catholic Social Teaching



Catholic Social Teaching is: 

The underlying insight is that everyone has the right and responsibility to live in our world constructively, not destructively, and to ensure that we leave it in a better state than when we entered it.


At the core of Catholic Social Teaching are a number of key concepts and principles.

Chief among these are:


  • Care of Creation (Autumn A)
  • Preferential option for the poor (Autumn B)
  • Solidarity and peace (Spring A)
  • Community and participation (Spring B)
  • Dignity of workers (Summer A)
  • Human Dignity (Summer B)


At St. Augustine's, we, as a whole school follow the Caritas Rooted in Love scheme where all children are taught about Catholic Social Teaching at an age appropriate level. 


At the beginning of each half term we have a whole school assembly introducing the new theme to the children. This is then followed up with work in class and a whole school project at the end of the half term.
