Remembrance Service

Posted: 12 November 2019

Yesterday , we were honoured to be invited to sing at South Devon College’s annual Remembrance Service. For the past seven years, Y6 pupils at Sacred Heart have participated in the poignant event by reading their self-penned war poetry. This year, along with the poems, we brought along sixteen young singers to mark this special day. It was by far my proudest moment as a headteacher so far as the children brought tears to the eyes of hundreds of staff and learners at the college as well as other visiting dignitaries. The children were outstanding in every sense of the word and were great ambassadors for Sacred Heart.

As a reward and thank you, the children were treated to bacon sandwiches, biscuits, cake and squash in the VIP area. Their smiles say it all.

Civic Award Update

Posted: 26 November 2018

Our Year 6 Civic Award children would like to say a big thank you for all the donations they received to their Christmas Boxes appeal. They were able to fill 30 boxes and as I am writing the boxes are on a lorry travelling to Eastern Europe to be opened with love by the children who receive them. A fantastic effort by all. On Tuesday Evie had her hair cut for her chosen charity: NSPCC. Evie organised the whole event herself and her hairdresser kindly came in on her day off. Evie has raised over £220. Well done!!

Pirate Day!

On Friday 19th May children in the EYFS took part in a pirate fun day. They engaged in a range of activities to raise money for Rowcroft Hospice. The children dressed up as pirates for the day and played pin the patch on the pirate, took part in a treasure hunt, found treasure in a lucky dip game, had their faces painted and even made their teachers walk the plank!

We are proud to announce that we raised £323.50 for Rowcroft Hospice. We would like to thank all the parents and guardians for your donations and also the brave members of staff for  taking part! The children in the early years are certainly good at throwing wet sponges!


Easter Open Afternoon

To end the half term we invited families into the classroom to engage in Easter activities with their children. The session was well attended and the children enjoyed sharing their learning with their family. We were also very lucky that Mrs Sutton came to help us make some Easter cakes. What a wonderful day at Sacred Heart.


Animal HQ

Animal HQ came to Sacred Heart to visit the EYFS children.The children had been learning about mini beasts in their classes so they were very excited to be able to see some creatures up close. The children had the opportunity to hold creatures, feed animals and ask questions to find out more about the animals.
