I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me, with me in him, bears fruit in plenty”

John 15: 1-8


At Sacred Heart RC Primary School, we aim to maintain a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which children are encouraged to have respect for themselves and each other. Through quality teaching and learning, children are given the opportunity to develop individuality and responsibility, and are challenged to achieve their full potential.


We believe it is important that we develop the whole child, nurturing the academic, creative, spiritual, aesthetic and social aspects equally. Self-discipline and acceptable codes of behaviour are valued and promoted. 



We see our school as being at the heart of our community and we encourage children to value and celebrate the diversities they encounter in this community and the wider world.


Achievement and good behaviour is is celebrated at Sacred Heart in many ways; the children can earn stars of the week, Headteacher awards, housepoints, 'Sacred Heart' certificates for good behaviour and play leader certificates. Each week we have a celebration assembly when we congratulate others on their achievements.
