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.

Children’s Parliament Last week, children in Y5 competed in heats in school where they had to present a speech showing ways they think we can tackle climate change in Torbay.

Our representatives spoke to the wider children's parliament about how to tackle climate change in Torbay. They presented confidently and spoke clearly. Afterwards they were allowed to explore a few of the rooms at theTown Hall and Kevin Foster spoke to them about government and the parliamentary process. ... See MoreSee Less

It was wonderful to welcome Y1 and 2 parents in to school this week. We were determined to make this happen this term as we are very aware that Y1 parents haven’t been inside the school due to circumstances over the last few years. Y2 parents were also invited as they have had limited school experiences too. I was sad to miss it but staff reported back that there was a happy buzz and parents reported back positively. The children were delighted to share their work and show their parents around followed by a cream tea in the lodge. We look forward to inviting KS2 parents back into school in the new year and getting back to the curriculum events we had in place pre-covid. ... See MoreSee Less
