Everyone is Sacred

Welcome to Sacred Heart

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you find the information useful and that it helps you to understand why our aim is to ensure ‘Everyone is Sacred’.

We continually strive to provide our children with a learning environment that values their individual needs: spiritually, academically, physically, morally and socially. We believe that happy children are successful learners. We respect each other, appreciate differences and understand the importance of good manners We believe we have a responsibility to be good citizens that live the Gospel values in our daily lives. Sacred Heart is a Voluntary Aided Roman Catholic School which exists to serve the Catholic parish of Paignton. Pupils attend at the deliberate choice of their parents. It is therefore assumed that parents are in complete agreement with all school policies as set down and revised by governors and staff. Standards of work, conduct, appearance, etc. expected of pupils are high, and parents are expected to co-operate and support the school in the enforcing of these standards.

Our door is always open and we welcome further enquiries.

‘If school were to be closed due to severe weather, or other unforeseen circumstances, all parents and carers will be notified via SMS alert. It will also be mentioned on the local radio “Heart fm”. Please ensure that you have informed the school office if  your mobile phone number has changed.’ Please ensure that your web browser is up to date to view this site.

We were very fortunate to receive a large donation from CARITAS Plymouth earlier this year. A lot of the money went into keeping the Parent Pantry topped up and food parcels for those in most need over lockdown.

We still had some money left over at the start of term which we used to purchase vouchers to enable us to keep going a little longer. We used Morrisons as they were so generous to our school community throughout the summer term.

We know that times are still hard for some of our families and with the furlough scheme coming to an end, it may bring new financial worries. We are still able to make food referrals through school and will work creatively to try and support our families.

Please find some breakfast items ( including a mountain of beans and mushrooms) in the pantry today: cereals, jams, long life milk and marmalade.

We have also topped up the hygiene essentials. More to come about this later.

Lovely to see our Y3 children on the front page of The Herald Express this week. They have been thoroughly enjoying their new-found fame (as has Miss Winsor).

Reception parents, the ‘First Class’ supplement will be in next Wednesday’s edition.
