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.

As Sacred Heart is home to many seagulls (an exceptional amount this year) it felt only fitting to get involved with a new art project - SSSH! Project - Stolen Seagull Scavenger Hunt happening next academic year. This will involve a resident artist visting the school to work with the children, working towards a seagull trail across Torbay for later in the year.If your child is looking for something to keep them occupied this summer, the project leaders are inviting those children who will be participating to get ahead of the game and share their seagull related art work. You can add it to instagram or Twitter but if you don't access to those forums, simply post the art work here and I will share it on your behalf. ... See MoreSee Less

As another academic year closes, I’d like to thank all the parents for all your support through this challenging year. There have been constant changes, mask wearing, social distancing, parking problems, bubble closures, remote learning and staggered start and end times - to name but a few, but we’ve made it. Thank you for your flexibility and cooperation when things have put us to the test. It is testament to the good character of our school community that you can adapt and change and are able to recognise the bigger picture and that we are a collective -a community of many walks of life where we walk together to support one another for the common good.I’d also like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the staff at Sacred Heart for the amazing job they have done this year. We really do have a team who are willing to go the extra mile. Who knows what September will bring. I will write again nearer the time with further information and logistics. In the meantime, have a wonderful summer. Enjoy making memories with your children. Take care and God bless ♥️ ... See MoreSee Less
