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.

Summer Term starts tomorrow and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back in the morning. We hope that you have had an enjoyable break and that you’ve managed to enjoy some of the sunshine. All covid restrictions are still in place; there has been no change in school guidance. Please adhere to the staggered start timings, the wearing of face coverings in the playground and surrounding areas and social distancing. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
