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.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the parents who followed the safety instructions today. The children behaved impeccably all day and it was such a joy to see so many smiles and listen to their lockdown conversations.

We had a few teething problems at the office at key worker pick up time so Mrs Pascoe will be on the front door from 2:50 tomorrow with a few runners to collect the children more swiftly. Key worker parents are welcome to wait in the playground if they prefer.

Thanks again. Stay safe 🌈

I will be posting a video welcoming children back to school shortly.

A few questions keep cropping up so I will repeat the information.

Children should be in school uniform tomorrow. Key worker children too. The uniform needs to be washed every day for infection control. If this is a struggle, they may come in their PE kit if their uniform is in the wash.

Each child will need a labelled water bottle (water fountains have been blocked off), their lunch and labelled sun hat. If you wish to provide sun cream, it must be labelled and will not be returned until the end of term. Please do not brings bags, pencil cases or any other items from home. If you do, they will be sent home with you at the gate.

As they go into class they will put their lunch under their desk and any coats or jumpers/cardigans on the back of their chair. There will be no coat pegs.
