Everyone is Sacred

Welcome to Sacred Heart

Following our recent visit from Ofsted on 1st March 2017 , we are delighted that after a one day inspection, our HMI Inspector, Mrs Tracy Hannon, has concluded that we are still a good school.

In February 2016, Sacred Heart were inspected by the Diocese of Plymouth on behalf of OFSTED. The inspection focused on our school as a catholic community including the teaching of RE as a core subject. As a Catholic school we were judged as:

1. ‘If I, your Lord and Teacher have washed your feet, you are also to wash one another’s feet. For I have set you an example, that you should also do as I have done to you.’ John 13 14-15

This is the highest judgement that a Catholic school can be awarded. It is a great achievement for Sacred Heart in its mission to serve the children and adults within our Catholic community.

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.
