DSIB Inspection 2016/17

We are now able to share our DSIB inspection report for the academic year 2016-17. We are delighted to announce that VHPS has been upgraded in 10 of the DSIB’s key performance indicators. Amongst these improvements are the children’s progress and attainment in Science, our provision for promoting Inclusion and the children’s attainment in Islamic Studies.

Early results from external assessments carried out this term are demonstrating that 100% of our children are working at or above the UK curriculum standards, with the vast majority of these working significantly above UK standards.

It is testament to our children, staff and wider community that VHPS continues to advance and develop so rapidly. Indeed, the inspectors remarked upon the notable improvements the school had made in the short period since the last inspection, and also the supportive and enthusiastic nature of our parent community. We thank all of you for this.

We are extremely proud of our school, and will continuously strive to improve in order to benefit our amazing children.
