From humble beginnings in a temporary structure in 1969, the school has become an exceptional success story and that is not our opinion only. We quote from the last OFSTED inspection
St. Vincent’s School was subject to an Ofsted inspection on the 4th and 5th July 2014. This was not unexpected since our last Ofsted inspection took place in December 2007. The recent inspection was the school’s first under the new revised Ofsted framework (July 2013).
We are very pleased that school was graded as ‘Good’ with a number of ‘Outstanding’ features. Everyone in school is proud and delighted that Ofsted highlighted the behaviour and attitude of the pupils and their safety as outstanding, along with the outstanding contribution to the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Ofsted have also highlighted areas in which school can further improve and work in these areas has already commenced.
Just before the Easter holiday 2014 we had an R.E. Inspection at St. Vincent’s Primary School.
The Inspectors said “St Vincent’s is an outstanding Catholic Primary school. There is a wonderfully warm and friendly welcome given to all. All children are provided a Catholic education in a caring and supportive environment where differences are welcomed and celebrated. All children take a great pride in the school which is fully inclusive.” (a summary of the Report can be found on the school web site)
