In February 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. If you would like to read the school inspection report, please click on the link below.
At times there may be changes to the RE rota due to events in school or Father Mark’s commitments. In the event of a change, the class teacher or office will notify you. If you have any questions regarding the rota, please ask Mrs Flintham.
The Catholic Community is one that is embedded in the areas of Welcome, Worship, Word, Welfare and Witness, and are the key components of what it means to live a Christian way of life. Sacred Heart, as a Catholic Community, embraces these components in our day to day school life, through our teaching, learning, relationships and ethos. Our Christian values, are embedded in our belief of creating a community that reaches out to all: in school, the local community and the wider world. In School Our religious curriculum, both knowledge and reflective, lay the foundation of our childrens’ academic and emotional development in school. Although is RE taught discreetly, our Catholic values permeates through all aspects of school life at Sacred Heart. We support every child and adult within our school community to thrive both academically and emotionally in a secure and loving community. Our Local Community We are proud to be part of the Parish of Sacred Heart, where we regularly attend Mass and significant events with members of the Parish. We hold our Sacred Heart Christmas Nativities and Easter Mass in Church where we again celebrate with our local community. We draw upon the support of the local community through visits into school and out of school, to ensure that the curriculum we offer the children is rich and diverse. The Wider World Each class has chosen a charity in which they will raise money for over the course of the next year. The charity will be linked into the curriculum and each class will fun raise for their chosen charity through events, selling items or maybe even performances! We aim to chow the children how the smallest of actions in school in Paignton can help vulnerable people and animals allover the world. Our Aims We aim to provide a loving community for children and adults that continues the mission of the Church. Our community grows from the foundations of Welcome, Worship, Witness, Welfare and Word.
To welcome one another in fellowship and love.
To create a disposition of every member of the community to be open to the needs of others, in how we listen, respond and act.
To celebrate the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ.
To ensure that our community gathers to reconcile, celebrate and spread His word.
To invite every member of our Catholic community to live each day through Word and Eucharist.
To share our values and faith with the world and our local community, so that others may come to know the love of Christ.
To promote a shared vision and shared values which stem from a shared sense of the teaching of the Gospel.
To encourage care and concern for others, regardless of who they are or where they come from.
To ensure our children are supported in their learning, shown compassion when they are unhappy or in need.
To ensure adults are cared for and that they care for one another.
To reach out to the local community, recognising the needs of others.
To expose children to the person of Christ, as revealed in Scripture and in the manner in which we teach.
To teach children to know that God speaks to us in the way we experience and engage with kindness, beauty, justice, the wonders of the natural world, relationships and the needs of others.
To model positive attitudes and communication through well prepared lessons.
