St. Vincent's RC Primary School

St. Vincent's Roman Catholic Primary School is a Voluntary Aided school under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle, and serves the parish of Our Lady and St. Vincent. Our school community is made-up of children, parents, carers, governors and staff, and each member has an important role to play in supporting the school's values, ethos and aims. Here at St. Vincent’s we have created a caring, stimulating and disciplined learning environment: a place where every child has the motivation, opportunity and support to fulfil their learning potential. 

                                 

British values and Gospel teachings are central to our school life and through these we dedicate each day to God with our school prayer:

Lord bless our school
so that by working together and playing together
we may learn to serve you and to serve one another
Amen
