                      Welcome to Vauxhall Primary School


Christopher Toye Head of School

I welcome you to the Vauxhall Primary School website and would like to thank you for your interest. Vauxhall is a school that educates two hundred and twenty children aged 3 – 11 years old in the London Borough of Lambeth.

Children enter the nursery and leave at the end of Year 6 when they transfer to secondary school. The school also incorporates the Vauxhall Children Centre, this facility offers a range of services that support families through child care, adult learning, parenting programmes and helping bring a range of service providers (health, social care, employment) into the community. The school serves a range of pupils that represent the diversity of the local area. The school has an experienced staff that share considerable ambition for the institution. The school is well regarded by a loyal parent body who have helped shape the priorities and direction that it has taken recently.

The recently established Parent Staff Association has proved a considerable asset. The most recent Ofsted inspection graded the school as Outstanding in all areas. In addition to the importance of academic achievement the school seeks to provide many opportunities, often in partnership with other organisations, for the children to develop talents and interests in the arts, sports and environmental education. The behaviour of children is good as a result of a positive ethos, a focus on enjoyment and an expectation of participation and contribution by everyone connected to the school.

I am in the distinctive position of having been Head of Vauxhall in 2003/4 and was reappointed as Executive Headteacher in November 2009. The school has a considerable history and has been recently remodelled inside and outside in order to make it fit for the purpose of providing education in the 21st Century. I am looking forward to taking Vauxhall School forward and developing the collaboration with Federation partner, Wyvil Primary School.

I look forward to any future involvement you may have as parent, colleague, visitor or friend of the school.
