Please see the full report, and highlights from the report below. 

Religious Education Inspection Report October 2023

St Vincent's Catholic Primary School is an outstanding, joy-filled school which celebrates the uniqueness of all within its community and strives to live out daily its mission statement, 'Let Your Light Shine'.

Pupils say they love their school and feel that it is a very special place; they say they feel safe, secure, nurtured and encouraged to be the best they can be. 

Parents recognise how much their children benefit from the emphasis placed on Catholic Life and Mission. One parent said, 'The Catholic faith is central to everything it does, and my children are learning from a young age how to be loving and kind to everyone. 

Pupils knowledge and understanding is excellent, fully supported by recap and recall practices at the beginning of lessons. This ensures pupils remember what they learn and as a result make at least good and often outstanding progress. 

Being able to prepare pupil worship at home extends the opportunity for parents to be more fully involved in their children's prayer life. 

Prayer and liturgy is central to the life of the school with well established daily prayer routines, weekly teacher led and pupil led prayer and liturgy.
