St Veronica'sRC Primary School

Not just a school; a family.

Our School

St Veronica’s is a small, Voluntary Aided, Roman Catholic Primary School situated in Helmshore in the Rossendale Valley. The School prides itself on many strengths including a very good ethos for learning, very good behaviour and attitudes to work by the children and excellent relationships between children and staff. This was reiterated in the School’s most recent Ofsted Report (March 2013).


"This is an outstanding school. The school is an extremely cohesive community with a very strong family atmosphere and a clear set of values which underpin everything it does.”


"The headteacher, staff and governors relentlessly pursue excellence in all areas of the school’s work, and are dedicated to providing opportunities to maximise the potential of every pupil, through outstanding teaching.”


"Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent and are a key strength of the school.”


"Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. They behave very well in lessons and around the school. They get on extremely well together and have very positive attitudes to learning.”


The nature of the school is that of a Catholic family environment, where pupils can acquire academic and social skills to the level of their own potential.
