Ofsted Reports


“Pupils make very rapid progress in academic subjects including English and Mathematics.”

“Pupils are very well behaved. They are polite and show much consideration for adults and their fellow pupils.

“Christianity is woven through all that the school does, the school is successful in supporting pupils’ personal and academic development and in helping them to develop a strong moral compass.”

“The school’s leaders understand well what constitutes outstanding teaching and learning and ensure that it happens almost all of the time. The involvement of parents as volunteers is also impressive.”


The Vine Christian School was awarded Outstanding by Ofsted in March 2014.

At the latest inspection in June 2019 the Inspector felt that some Safeguarding procedures were inadequate, which meant that the whole school was graded “Inadequate”.  The school leadership team have been through the report, and drawn up a comprehensive action plan to address all areas of concern, which we trust will lead to an excellent, safe school.

The Vine Christian School is also visited annually by representatives of Christian Education Europe Limited who ensure that their own rigorous standards are complied with.
